I've been reading

I get a lot of travel-related newsletters. For those who enjoy rail travel, I thought you would be interested in this site.

-  Treenway Silks newsletter. I love the vibrant colours of the silks.

-  While a number of the trades have minimal interest for me (i.e. snail breeding and cooking), it's an interesting read. 


-  This week, I received an email from Bill Lawson, widely acknowledged expert on Hebridean family history. Specifically, Bill has recently completed a comprehensive study of families on Harris. (Our visit to Chris and Bill's family history centre, on the Isle of Harris, is one of the highlights of our stay in the Outer Hebrides.)

For anyone who is thinking of travel to Wales or Scotland in 2013, the trips are getting close to being sold out. If you have been thinking about joining us, please contact me for information.
