From My Europe Journals:

2004-09-14 | London, United Kingdom

So far my trip is going well. When I first got in to London I met a guy named Esani. We exchanged information as we were walking back and forth in customs.

Right after I got out of there I met a guy named chad. I said to him "So, the adventure has begun" and this kicked off a load of excitement and conversation. Chad was from California and i have a random pic of him giving me the hang ten on the tube.

We ended up figuring out how to get to our destinations and went up to the booth. Come to find out they only accepted pounds. I was a total dumbass, but I didn't want to get screwed on my exchange rate in the airport. Oh well. Luckily Kurt gave me 10 euros and it worked out great. We got on the train and had small talk and exchanged information.

Once I got out of the tube my heart just dropped being in the city. Black cabbies cruising by, all the cute accents, the beautiful architecture. History . . . Read More..

Worlds greatest Island

2004-09-21 | Isle of Skye, United Kingdom

Last night I was reluctant of paying 18 pounds (36 bucks) for a day tour of Skye (because of the weather). This would of been a huge mistake if I would not have paid.

Our bus driver (Lou) was the best bus driver ever! So freaking hilarious. Our first stop was these hairy coos Scotland is so famous for. They smelled very grotesque but the view was magnificent. Then the most amazing thing happened. I could see a rain front come down a glen and then a full rainbow burst itself the width of the front. It was coming straight for us across the glen, then a second came on top of it. Once it hit us it was pure hail! It stopped a minute later and was the ABSOLUTE most beautiful thing I have ever seen (except Susan). All of what I saw today almost cant be described in words it was so beautiful. It was like in a movie and all of the scenery was from a fantasy world. Surely this is the most lush and fertile island on the whole

Fun in Town 2004-09-15 | London Today I woke up, showered, had a crappy breakfast and the met up with the people I talked with last night.

Ginger and our other friend ended up getting an all day travel pass and hitting up the Tate Modern museum. By the time we got out there I wanted to sit down and write in my journal and I ended up falling asleep to the great view of St. Pauls cathedral. Somehow while I was sleeping some girl was sketching me sleeping. I never got to see it but I am wondering if my hair looked good. :-D

We also saw the tower bridge. That was probably the most amazing bridge I have ever seen. I have taken a lot of good pictures so far of me and my new friends.

After that we grabbed some lunch and ended up going to Big ben Westminster Abbey and Parliament. But when we got out, there was this huge demonstration. Apparently today they wanted to pass a bill banning hunting. The city was furious with this bill and it was so cute how they came together. I mean, if

Thin Roads and Big Glens

2004-09-23 | Glassgow and Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Today we woke up and I was super tired from staying up all night. We drove most of the day but we stopped by a hairy coo farm (got another good pic). At least they didn't smell this time. Driving today we went down these one lane roads that we barely fit in. I talked a lot about Denmark with my new friend Rosalina for a little. I learned some crazy things about how their government works. Their whole country is as left as they come and they pay like 60 percent taxes.

We went to the Wallace memorial as well today, that was alright. I wish I had gotten to see his sword, but that would have cost like 6 pounds. Another thing we did was see one of the most beautiful views in all of Scotland. It was at Rob Roy's grave up this huge glen. The view was just as good as on Skye. It was so relaxing.

When we got to Glassgow I said goodbye to all of my new friends and now I am here in Edinburgh. Tonight I

Off to Oban

2004-09-22 |Oban, United Kingdom This morning I waited for the 12 o'clock bus and ate breakfast somewhere other than the hostel. I also prepare a little surprise some of you will know about later.

We stopped by Eilean Donan Castke. This was a very amazing castle but I was disappointed it wasn't as old as it looks. The tour was boring.

After that I tried to make a sandwich while swerving in and out of the highland roads. I made a turkey sandwich with pita bread. but the worst thing about it was that I put this English mustard on it. Now, this just ruined my lunch. We also saw the castle that the final scene was shot in Monty Pythons Holy grail.

When I got into Oban I saw a to do list of things to do. I saw see STALKER CASTLE!! I was really excited. But come to find out it takes too long to get to. Sorry Kirt.

In Oban a ton of people from the macB tour went karaoking. I did two songs and my neck is a little soar from all the crazy rock dancing I do when I am up
