Having started digitising some of my 35mm slides from the 1980s/1990s, I include a few here. Over the years, I've been to most Scottish Islands, including Shetland (most photos not included here). One day I hope to visit Orkney.
Film 11 to 13: LGS USSR School Trip Dec 1989: Aged 16, I visited the USSR on LGS school trip in Dec 1989, 5 weeks after the Berlin Wall fell, a pivotal time in Eastern Europe and Soviet Politics. We visited Leningrad, Kiev (Ukraine) and Moscow which each had memorable moments.
Film 21: Snow, Kinder Scout (Derbyshire), at home Feb 1991: Walk over Kinder Scout (Derbyshire) in snow, with Kinder Downfall frozen, sits in memory as a fairly epic winter walk, there was a lot of snow and ice around. And it was cold I imagine too! My photo record book says we had a school snow day on one of the Fridays.
