Well its been awhile since i have done a blog, for some reason im already tired of doing them!!! So this last friday we took an overnight bus to Edinburgh, Scotland. We had to take a bus and than the underground to get to the london bus station!! We left the london bus station around 7 and didnt get to Scotland til 730 the next morning!! It was not a fun bus ride!! I barely got any sleep!! Well we got to Edinburgh at 730 and it was absolutly frigid!!! I had a ski jacket, beanie, and gloves and i was still freezing!!! We walked straight to the hostel to check in, well they wouldnt let us, they said we were to early! So we walked around get some breakfast for about 3 hours and than headed back to the hostel. One of the guys took a train from london saturday morning so we met up with him at like 12 and than got some lunch and took a train to St. Andrews.
I would have to say St. Andrews is one of my favorite places. It is the place where golf was created, how crazy is that!!! And than to sit on the old golf course, on famous hole 17 and on the bridge, its crazy!! I have grown up watching the british open and saw moments like Tiger Woods winning the tournement and Arnold Palmer and Jack nicholas walking across the bridge for the last time, its crazy, i absolutly loved it!!!
We caught the train back to edinburgh around 7 and got back around 8!! We went back to the hostel and than went to an italian resturaunt for dinner!! It was alright!! All 3 of us were going on lil sleep so we ended up just going back to the hostel and passing out.
The next morning we caught the free tour that they give everyday!! It was a 3 hour tour of old and new edinburgh!! The tour guides go only off of tips but they make alot of money cause there are alot of people that come out!!! So we did the tour from like 11 to 230, it was really cool, our tour guide was a 22 year old fitness trainer and really enthusiastic!!! After the tour, alan and ray went off to the castle but i decided not to go and did my own thing!! I went to st giles cathedral and the museums!!! After we met back up, we just hung around til we got our bus back!!! It was a pretty good trip!!
