I'll be boarding a plane later today to head back to beautiful Edinburgh. But before I do, I am compelled to share that I also believe Hollins University in Roanoke, Virginia to be one of the most bucolic places on the planet - in a completely different way.
Greens are especially verdant here, with fog that sits in the hills like stuffing let loose from a comfortable chair. Deer roam without fear and become regular companions. It's why I so look forward to returning every summer to the rolling hills - my Appalachian mountains. I can never stay away from you for long.
