from edinburgh to inverness to the highlands: a trekker’s guide to scotland

The Highlands are rife with history—including a long record of climbing—which is part of the allure for climbers and trekkers venturing to Scotland. Victorian-era hill walkers rode trains to the Highlands where they spent holidays bagging peaks. Among other things, the development and advancement of climbing equipment and modern rock and ice climbing techniques took place in Scotland in the 1960s and 1970s. Volunteer Scottish mountain rescue teams also created many of the skills used by contemporary rescue groups. With the barren mountains, steep faces, and wild weather, Scotland has been the perfect location for the evolution of climbing techniques, clothing, and equipment. Because of this, a culture of characters was forged in the Highlands, including Dougal Haston, Hamish MacInnes, and Malcolm Smith, and those characters were at the forefront…

an aerial tour of portugal’s gem foz do arelho

When I began to feel that photography was my passion, this beach became part of my daily commute. I was fourteen years old when I took my first photo on this beach: an impossible-to-miss rock called Gronho that rises at the end of the beach. Since then it was almost routine: a trip to Foz at the end of the day to try to photograph one of the best sunsets you can see in Portugal. I still treasure this collection of photographs. About four years ago, I bought a cheap, second-hand drone and I mounted an inexpensive action-cam to it. The drone had about seven minutes of autonomy, but it was enough to fall in love with the vision that I had gained from above. For a few weeks straight, I…

PLACE I CALL HOME: MINNESOTA, USA INSTAGRAM: @BLOLMSCHEID BRANDONOLMSCHEID.COM Do you see travel as a path to pursuing one’s dreams? Yes, you will benefit from traveling in so many ways no matter what your passion is that you plan to pursue. Traveling puts you out of your comfort zone and opens your mind in ways you couldn’t while not traveling. Traveling could simply be that missing part to your life that could change everything for you in the best way possible. What is one place you’ve visited that truly felt like you were in a dream? One of the most surreal places I’ve experienced was definitely The Great Sand Dunes in Colorado, USA. It felt like I was walking on a different planet! It’s so unique. As the sun started to set over the horizon the…

don jose ruiz waking up to our purest hearts: toltec wisdom to tend the gardens of our lives

In part two of Face the Current’s soulful sit-down with don Jose Ruiz, we dive deeper into our responsibility to future generations, the acceptance of our imperfect life paths, getting off of our “islands of safety,” being our own angels, breaking our addictions to suffering, facing and accepting the currents of our lives, and freeing ourselves from negative habits for the health of the gardens of our lives. We continue opening our minds to the healing wisdom of the Toltecs, as don Jose Ruiz enlightens and empowers us to live our lives with accountability and the purest of hearts with insights from his latest books “The Wisdom of the Shamans” and “The Fifth Agreement.” “Our life is an amplification of the planet, and the planet is what we call in the many…
