But It's beautiful here, far Eastern Russia is just gorgeous. There were places today that looked very like Scotland, remind me of Scotland. And I've been struck by how much the world looks like Scotland, and it ust adds to my theory, you know, that we, we made the rest of, the rest of the world in Scotland. We made it all, you know, we made it all in the image of our homeland.

My sister was raving about 'The Long Way Round' after she bought it on DVD, she lent me hers and I watched both discs in a weekend! as i was hooked. It was the best television programme I have seen in a very long time. I went and bought it and have been raving about it to anyone & everyone since. I only knew about the series originally as Ewan was on Fridy night with Jonathon Ross and it went quiet from there. It was on 'Sky' but again didn't hear much about it which is a travesty. I won't go into detail of the programme as this will spoil your viewing. It'll make you laugh out loud, worry about them, will them on and you'll just really enjoy it but prepare to feel slightly inept due to the tenacity of Ewan, Charlie & the team.
