TenAhead Day 3

We woke up relatively late, 08:30. Had a lovely breakfast then spent some slow time sitting next to the fire in the dining room chatting, drinking cups of tea and coffee. The wind was a little better than yesterday so…

TenAhead Day 2

The wind has been howling since the early dark morning hours. We planned on going horse riding today but decided to stay indoors with this ice cold wind blowing outside. It’s kind of cool not being readily able to communicate with…

TenAhead Day 1

I’ve been on this planet for 34 years today. I woke up early, opened the curtains to watch the sun illuminate the mountain landscape just outside our window. The lodge has thick stone walls making it quite soundproof. It’s a…
