    I’m getting ready for Season 4 by reading “Drums of Autumn” by Diana Gabaldon. Here are some of my favorite quotes so far that I posted on Instagram. If you’re on Insta make sure you follow me! What are your favorites?  

  • Urban in Scotland: A 3 Day Outlander Tour

    Inverness Tours with Hugh Allison I can’t say enough about Hugh Allison! His 2017 tours were largely booked seven months prior to my trip – He’s that good. He’s really wonderful and makes my trip extra special. The depth of his knowledge about Scottish history is bottomless! He’s a tall, avuncular man in his 50s

  • Urban in Scotland: Day 1 Glasgow & the West End

    When I arrive in Glasgow on a late Wednesday morning, the weather is fine. Hey I didn’t come here for the sun (there is none)! Although on my first day, it’s none of that Scottish “dreich” (Scots word for the wet, cold, gloomy weather) that I hear so much about. Yes it was cloudy but

  • #VoyagerVirgin: The Voyage up to the 20th Chapter

    Before I embark on my first voyage to Scotland, I’ve been reading “Voyager”, the third book of Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” book series. This is not only the first time I’m reading the book but also reading it before I watch the season on Starz TV. I’m sensing a theme of a lot of firsts! I’m

  • Wrap It Up! The Urban Outlander’s 2016 Posts

    2016? Done. This was the first year of my website and it’s been fun! Earlier this year I was bored (and unemployed) so I thought I might indulge my obsession and begin a blog. Yes there are so many Outlander blogs out there but there’s only one of me! Thanks to any and all who

  • Byee 2016! Hello Outlander Season 3 2017!

    It’s a Special Holiday Edition: Jamie in a stocking (kind of), EW came out with an official Season 3 photo and it sent people into a tizzy – what’s up with the anti-Frank Randall comments? Are you signing up for Sam Heughan’s My Peak Challenge 2017? I salute you from my couch. Also, I’m about

  • There is No Conspiracy. Just Real People Making A Show.

    Photo courtesy of outlander-online.com Following post inspired by “The Making of Outlander” book by Tara Bennett. You can read a review of it here.   In light of appreciation for the hard work that goes into making this show, I really need to give my two cents about some other hot-button Outlander things that I

  • Dragonfly in Amber: Reflections on the book & the TV adaptation

                So Season 2 ended (with a bang I think!) and “Dragonfly in Amber” (aka DIA) beckoned me from my bookshelf as Droughtlander began. I read DIA for the first time after Season 2 ended. This was a theme I began after seeing Season 1 and then reading the first book “Outlander”. All of this

  • When Sparks Light the Fire – Fandom Through My Years

    Cassettes, CDs, posters, live recordings, pins, VHS tapes, concert tickets, t-shirts, baseball hats, magazine clippings, MTV interviews and music videos…   When I was an adolescent, I had an obsession with the band Bush. For any who may not know, this was Gavin Rossdale’s band in the mid to late 90’s (it was never just

  • Season 2 – Ep 13 – Dragonfly in Amber

    It’s the last episode of Season 2! I got my box of tissues but I’m groovin’ to the 60s music. There’s so much to talk about! Great performances by Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan but where’s the Bahston accent Brianna? Claire is still chasing Jamie’s ghost and she pulls a Lady Macbeth. Dougal, we’ll miss

  • Season 2 – Ep 9 – Pt 2 Claire/Dougal/Dragonflies/Mystery lines

    Did you believe Claire when she claims to have told Jamie about her and Dougal’s previous arrangement? She’s calling Dougal’s bluff! I don’t know who this William Grey is but I guess he’s a big deal. Also what is up with the dragonfly in amber?! I gotta know! There are some mysterious lines in this

  • Like a DIA Virgin – Trying to Stay Touched for the Verra First Time

    With one more month to go before the Season 2 premiere, there are so many exciting events going on in the Outlander world! An influx of new promo pics, latest trailer, new characters, spoilers, and Tartan parades leaves this Urban Outlander’s head swirling! Where to begin and how to participate in all of the fandom

  • When you want to be a Big Bad Producer on a show like Outlander

      Since the start of the new year, I’ve been focused on gaining more clarity about what I want my career to look like.  I listened to Maril Davis explain how she bailed on Ronald D.Moore when she began working for him and then through the twists and turns of life ended up working for

  • Welcome to The Urban Outlander and OMG Season 2 is coming!

    Hey this is my first post (ever)! So glad you could stop by and take a peek at what’s brewing over here! I’m new to Outlander (compared to all the legions of fans who’ve been following for years) but my passion is strong. So strong I had to start blogging about it. I’ll be mixing
