Here’s why you should visit Scotland

I feel at home the minute I set foot in some countries and feel like a total stranger even to myself in some others. With Scotland, it was love at first sight.
The spires of beautiful monuments and hilltop castles dominate the skyline in cities. Cattle grazing on rolling hills with a scenic backdrop characterize the Highlands. And the fishing villages are full of spirit and seagulls. Scotland, brimming with lochs (lakes) overflowing with legends of monsters and heroes, is now my favourite country.

A vast stretch of tropical garden, buildings with colorful-tiled facades, and distinctive museums dot the landscape. The river Tagus studded with 25th of April bridge, the Christ the King statue – inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro – at the far end, and celebrated eateries make up Belem, the culture capital of Lisbon.
