57 Degrees North

Soon the Northern adventure begins.... I'd started to get a little worried about the physical distance of the move to the Scottish Highlands. But then Abi pointed out that our destination will be in the 57th parallel (???Universe!) and showed me the following line from a book she is reading, 'Gods of the Morning' by John Lister-Kaye.

"Every now and again I have to remind myself that I have chosen to live north of the 57th parallel, closer to the Faroe Islands than to London, closer to the Arctic Circle than to Paris - something the Arctic's icy tendrils never let us forget."

Suddenly I feel very excited again by the move and dream.
