An important centre of Gaelic culture. Known as "An t-Eilean Sgitheanach" in Scottish Gaelic, the Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly of the Inner Hebrides. Once the disputed territory of both the MacLeod and Donald clans, the island is rich in ancient monuments.
Notably Armadale castle to the south, once home to Donalds and Dunvegan Castle to the north, still home to the MacLeods since the 13th century.
You can get to Skye via the bridge linking it to the mainland or as we did by ferry from Mallaig. It’s the first stepping stone before venturing further into the Outer Hebrides.
Although it would have definitely come in handy I’m almost glad we didn’t have a car. I recommend hitch-hiking in Skye. It seems the further away from civilisation you get and the more isolated you become the warmer the people around you get.
If you are in search of a lesser known European city full of nice examples of art and architecture, I would recommend that you visit Palermo, the capital of the region of Sicily in the South of Italy. This city is rich with wonderful churches, squares, fountains, and other important monuments and buildings! Take a look after the jump!
New York City has long been synonymous to skyscrapers, throngs of people both locals and tourists, neon lights, entertainment, and all things loud and hip. It is, after all, a metropolis, a melting pot of cultures - the city that never sleeps. However, back in the 1960s, Duane Michals was able to capture these photographs of a New York that many people has rarely seen.
