Going Home

Well, am currently waiting for my connection to Sydney. A 12 hour flight. I have had a 17 hour lay over which I was not overly happy about. Went on the free day tour of thne city in t he meantime which killed about 4 or 5 hours of that. Have been on the computer for a fair bit of the time cos the airport has free internet which is great. Am sad my holiday is over, but will be good to  get back into things again and be earning again. A little nervous about staying with dad....but should be ok. Will be glad to get back to Aussie anyway.

Holiday is almost over

I have had the best time. One of my friends from working in Japan took me out to the Highlands and Loch Ness and part of the Isle of Skye and I have been taken to Loch Lomond as well. The Scotland highlands are amazing. I am back in Glasgow at the moment and about to go and see the Cathedral. I don't actually think I have felt happier. People have been lovely to me and taken me around places and just been really welcoming and just awesome basically.

Scotland is Awesome.

I am in Glasgow and about to head to Aberdeen and Inverness (Loch ness area) tomorrow. I have never seen such beautiful countryside. Y has been so lovely. I really am very lucky and privileged with this holiday at all the things I have been able to see and do. I am not going nuts with souvenirs, I would love a stuffed scottish dog or a Radley bag but the radleys stuff is expensive. I have bought some fudge and a T towel and may buy one or two more things when I come back to Glasgow and/or visit Edinbrugh depending on how the cash situation is. I got taken to Loch Lomond yesterday and Drovers Inn, which is a really pretty little Scottish Pub. They had a cheapish Sunday roast which was great. I will be sad to go home.

Well, am in Manchester at the moment, and having a pretty good time. It is like a mini London really. The city centre has a cathedral and an impressive town hall. Harvey Nicholls and some great shops = the shopping area is massive. It also has an Art Gallery and the University itself has a great museum. Today I went into a suburb/outer Manchester - Bury and there they have a very popular market apparently the best in Britain. I also went to Burrs country park which is about 2km away from the town centre. This was breathtaking. Got a little frustrated with my camera as the batteries chose this time to run out and I had to go back and buy some and spent way too much on frigging batteries trying to get some to work....Will go back into town tomorrow and have another look around the city centre I have barely scrathed the surface of all the shops, but I have done a good mix of things and it will be my last chance to spend time in the city centre before I go on to Glasgow.

Went for a day trip to Durham yesterday. The church there is amazing. Just looking at the stained glass wiindows and the inside of the building. It is very impressive and supposed to be one the best preserved cathedrals in England. The university is also witihin the castle building which is incredible. Am quite tired today, I think the weather is taking a lot out of me, which is strange. Head to Manchester tomorrow which I am looking forward to a lot. Then it is on to Glasgow for a while.

L is still stressing about work, and I think is glad to be visiting her paretns back home for a bit. She has been really lovely to me.....
