We have been quiet online for a year but have been far from doing nothing! for the past few years I have been a lone driver with one 6 seater car, what fun and games. But everything is about to change. We are starting on a new adventure starting with expanding which means new vans and new employees! Thankfully both are working out well. We have 2 brand new fantastic vans arriving the end of next month and I’m so excited to get out and see the beauties of the Highlands in them. They have full panoramic views including a glass roof, which would be amazing to view the aurora borealis while in the warmth and comfort of the climate controlled vans. No more cups of hot chocolate while freezing stood out in the middle of nowhere for me!
Now Iona Highland Tours has become a family run business! Which has long been a dream of mine. I am no longer a lone driver, My son in law, Mark, has decided to take on a new challenge and is now going to be driving one of the new vans when they arrive. I think his new challenge will be more likely to learn how to work with the stubborn women In the family, one of them being his wife and of course me also. So while Mark and I are out showing off the wonderful scenery we have chosen to live, my daughter, Mary, is working behind the scenes doing the admin and making sure we are where we need to be. I don’t think she realised how much work goes on behind the scenes but she is learning quickly and doing a grand job. Even if it does mean that she brings the zoo, I mean my beautiful granddaughters with her to work while they are on the school holidays and to add insult to injury I also added a new puppy to the family mix, which means she also has to walk a German Shepherd daily.
Well I am sad to say that it has been fun to share my adventures with you over the last few years but this is sadly my last post but don’t worry its not the last post from Iona Highland Tours. As I mentioned my daughter has taken over the admin which also means she has taken over the posts and blog so from now on it will be her posting.(Although I very well may sneak in an odd one myself from time to Time, but don’t tell her.)
Thank you for sharing this adventure with me and keep checking to see what happens next 🙂 as the story continues into hopefully many more chapters.
