Back in London - ReCap

OK. Finally at a net place with USB access that works on my camera and my ipod. Uploading some photos of the last week right now. I have a lot more of them but I'll just pur up a selection.

The trip was great (As you can see by my previous post on Thursday Night). I'll see how much I can remember and do a recap:

Day1: Wild and Sexy Haggis Bus blew a air suspension thingy in Marlborough and we had to hang around there for close to 2 hours. We did manage to see the Uffington White Horse... well... a bit of it... We got the new bus and went to Avebury and then Bath. Spent the night in Bath.

Day2: Photos of the border between Wales and England. Then visited The Big pit. A Coal mine so named for its big shaft (its true). We then went to Hay on Wye (a town known for its books on the border of Wales and England) we found a place with great soup for lunch. We then went to the middle of no where for a night in a farm stay B&B thing. Was a great night as the Americans cooked up the food on the piss poor BBQ. While the Aussies stayed inside and did the other stuff. The night carried on to getting very drunk and playing Yahtzee and cards. And Tyson (one of the yanks) threw up (he was sharing a bottle of beam with me).

Day3: Drove through Snowdonia and visited the town with one of the longest names around. We then paid a visit to Conway. Great place! Castle and walled town. Have some great pictures. From there we went on to the Lake District. Played some frizbee and then stayed in a hostel in Ambleside and ate 99p pizzas.

Day4: The Drive to Scotland. Stopped at some waterfall place. Then onto Hadrians Wall. Then border pics on the edge of Scotland and then had a quick photo stop at Jedburgh Abbey. Then into Edinburgh for the night you can see the result of in the post below.

Day5: Recovery. Also went to Edinburgh Castle in the Afternoon. Didn't do much else. Walked around a bit. Took some photos and some Panadol.

Day6: Off to York and stopped and saw a field on the way... There was a battle there... Quite some time ago... Something about Flodden. :) Stayed in a friary in Beverley. Was a quiet night of sober games but was a good one.

Day7: Sherwood Forest! and Strathford-upon-Avon (The birthplace of Shakespeare) then the drive into London.

Staying at Wake Up London for the week until Saturday when I fly out to Munster to meet Sjoerd :) Can't Wait. This week will be walking and visiting free stuff in London. Kate is also at Wake Up London so I have someone to spend my time with.

Photos are up :)
