Supermundane

Doesn't supermundane sound soooo boring? Actually it means out of this world or superior to earthly things. And that makes it jolly difficult to illustrate.

This is Arbroath Abbey. We enjoyed our visit there very much - definitely closer to super than to mundane.

  2. What a great word! Knowing the meaning makes its origins clear, but I'd have fallen into the trap of your first thought.

    1. Yes, once we know what it means, it does make sense.

  3. I thought "supermundane" was an ultra boring superhero.

    1. Not yet, Kate. We're back up to Scotland this year, so we might visit then. Haven't planned all our route yet.

  5. It amazes me how those old walls keep standing. Never mundane but could be supermundane.
