This weekend, me and R went to Scotland for the first time. Previously, the furthest north I’ve ever been was Kings Lynn in Norfolk, not very north at all.
We went up to meet our friend Rach whom we haven’t seen in quite a while. She’s lived in Edinburgh for over two years but we haven’t had time to visit as I’ve had tons of things to do with university and R with work.
When I finished all of my assignments in may, we decided it was time to do all the things we now have time for and started looking for cheap train tickets. Luckily, R found tickets for £18 each for this weekend and we booked it quickly before they were all snatched up.

The weekend was supposed to rain, according to the internet, but amazingly we never got rained on once.(At one print, it did rain but we were inside, enjoying food and a Futurama film)

So, what did we see during our Scottish weekend? Well, we walked to the castle, walked around town, ate lots of nice food, went to the cinema (inception – quite interesting!) and just enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of London. And of course, spent a whole weekend with Rach, whom we haven’t seen since our birthdays in January!

I must say I really enjoyed Scotland and wouldn’t mind going back some time!

NY in 2006

Me and R have been talking about making a visit to the States for quite some time now, ever since the first time we went (together) in 2006. He has got friends in San Francisco and New York which is handy when it comes down to visiting. I have never been a good tourist in the way of finding out via websites what needs to been seen, driven past and eaten whilst I’m on holiday but I would rather have a native showing me the best little gems in a town.

As I finished my degree in June, we decided to go travelling this summer and as Bridget and Gareth’s wedding is due to take place in the beginning of September, we thought it would be amazing to be able to attend. At the moment, it would be great to visit everyone we know so the plan is to go to San Francisco, Boston, New York and Baltimore – but it depends on budget and when all our friends will be there. I’m so excited!
