Discovered a new word today: to stravaig, which is Scottish vernacular for "to wander aimlessly"....
I recommend a little stravaiging now and again... Perhaps in life, perhaps of a weekend, perhaps online...

There are plenty of image sets on Flickr relating to the idea of Stravaiging...Check out this excellent image from Flickr user WORLD OF JAN (under Creative Commons)
It shows the lower slopes of Sgurr Dearg on the Isle of Skye, which I climbed a few years BC (before children), when I used to do a lot more climbing in the Scottish Highlands... Spectacular landscapes...
