Fraser’s Ridge, a location any faithful Outlander book fan would easily recognize. With its lush mountains and thick wilderness, it’s a place Jamie and Claire will call their home while in America.

In the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, lies a small historic town called Blowing Rock and another named Boone. Nestled between these two towns, a very unique experience is created by a remarkable company, Novel Adventures, allowing participants to travel similar paths as our favorite Outlandish characters. On July 5 – 8, the “Gathering on the Ridge” event took place at The Mast Farm Inn where about 50 people met to enjoy four days of “Fraser” living. The highlight of the occasion was the attendance of Cesar Domboy, Outlander‘s Fergus Fraser. One of our very own, Mela, was fortunate to take part in the culminating function, dinner with Cesar.

As we close 2016, we decided to take a moment to appreciate the positive experiences this year has offered us. As three professional women, with families, we balance work, busy schedules, and taking time to go out and experience all that the Outlander fandom has to offer.

Sharing our adventures in all things Outlander was our motivation to start this blog. We have enjoyed having a place to talk about our love for the books, author, show, cast, and crew. As we begin the festivities to celebrate the new year, we wanted to take time to reflect on our favorite memories of 2016. Come take a look at some of our favorite moments!
