Sunny days are few and far between for a subarctic island.
Likewise, days together are even fewer and further between for a wife who holds a 9-5 office job and her husband who works shift patterns.
Imagine our delight when we finally managed time off together … on a sunny day!
Bless my non-millennial husband’s kind heart for stepping out of his Generation X comfort zone and trying out new things — he had no clue as to what an instameet was. Regardless, he assured me that he had a great time.
The lovely Louise organised the very first Shetland instameet, topped off by some locally sourced lunch at The String Shetland.
Many thanks, Louise, for putting this together; for giving this unlikely pair another excuse to go for another long walk and long talk.
Here are some snaps of that glorious morning:
A hearty lunch, courtesy of The String Shetland — maraming salamat!
Apologies for the long absence. Rest assured that I have missed reading all of your engaging content. So many things are in the pipeline for your Archipelagal this year, and I can’t wait to share them all with you. Thank you for your patience and endless support.
This is one of my shorter posts, but I felt compelled to write about it because 1) it was such a pleasant surprise and 2) anyone could easily do it. I would love to hear about your own insta-meet or meet-and-greet adventures. If you’ve never done one, I highly recommend it — it’s a great way to meet people with common interests!
Inspired, excited, and grateful,
