Scottish Island Caretaker (job advert)

This might be of interest to some people, you never know. I thought it was quite interesting, in any case. My brother mentioned on Facebook this job opportunity published on the Daily Mail in Scotland: caretaker for the remote Inchcolm Island and its abbey. Isolated, with long periods of solitude, images of The Shining automatically come to mind, in a gothic horror setting. On the plus side, there is little opportunity to spend the money you earn, you have a whole island to yourself and the site is obviously gorgeous. If you can survive the cabin fever, retain your sanity and not go on a murderous rampage Jack Torrance style (''you are the caretaker, you've always been the caretaker'') the first time you see another human being, there is enough material there to write your own horror story. In case anybody reading is interested.

The perfect job for an introvert!

J'adorerais mais seulement si je peux apporter mon chien.

Ca me fait penser qu'il faudrait bien que je regarde The Shining une fois dans ma vie!
