Good Scottish Weather

2004-09-20 | Inverness, United Kingdom

Today's weather was pure shit. The drive from Inverness wasn't very good at all. The driver had really bad jokes and just rambled. Luckily we only had him until noon with our jump on jump off tour of Scotland. On the way we stopped by a very beautiful waterfall. I thought it was funny how we were on this bridge at near capacity, so I got off.

Once we got to Kyle, the bus driver dropped us off in the worst rain and wind I have ever been in. My friend Gal was walking about and he freaked out a kid taking his driving test. The kid slammed on the brakes, which so happened to cause him to fail the test. Gal later found that out when he rode the same bus across the bridge to the Isle of Skye.

The bus driver dropped us off in the city across the way because the bridge is privately owned and it costs a bus 50 pounds to cross it!! It is ridiculous. Anyway, the whole day I relaxed in the hostel and spoke with

Off to Amsterdam.... :-D

2004-10-06 | Amsterdam, Netherlands

When I woke up.... it was pure hell. I drank wayyyy too much whisky and beer with my Korean friends. I woke up late, I had a train to catch and I couldn't eat (a very bad sign). I know what happens when I cant down food.

Sluggishly I rotated from lying down in the bed and trying to get all my shit together. I ate about two pieces of cereal. Gladly I didn't have a huge headache. When I was getting my stuff ready though, I had that typical watering of the mouth sensation. Ut oh! :-D But I did my deed in a garbage bag, but it was just water. It pisses me off because the body didn't get rid of any alcohol in my stomach. And as soon as I was done, I was feeling great!

I hurried to get my stuff ready, for my train left in about 30 minutes and I had a long tube ride to get there. Well as you suspected I

A rainy Musee Day

2004-10-05 | Paris, France

Today I used up my 'all day' museum pass. First I stopped by the train station to pick up a ticket to Belgium. My friend I met online through this travel site wanted to meet up for a day. I got my tickets and then mapped out all of the museums that sounded interesting.

The first museum that I went into was the Musee D'Orsay. This one was pretty nice and I got the idea in my head to take photos of famous paintings WITH ME IN THE PHOTO! I took a photo of Van Gough's self portrait. I saw some of Monet's landscapes. And although they are quite nice with his use of color or whatever... he didn't really appeal to me.

The next museum was the Rodin museum. I didn't even do any research, I just knew it was popular. I really liked Rodin's sculptures, yet they were kind of like classy porn. Some of these museum buffs were probably like "oh.... I like his use of detail" when in fact their old fart asses are getting all hot and

Trucking along

2004-10-08 | Cologne, Germany

Today I woke up at 8:30 and wasn't even tired. I said goodbye to Maika and had breakfast. But today I had to check out so spent my whole morning organizing my stuff, showering, doing laundry and checking the internet.

I did a little last minute souvenir shopping and also had the idea to go to Cologne Germany next to see the Bascilla (huge cathedral) that I have been curious about. Really nothing interesting became of the morning and I wound myself in the train station jumping on a train to cologne at 1 PM.

On the train I met some Scottish people and talked with this girl Nieve a bunch. We talked a lot about Scotland because I had so much fun there. It was a really great conversation (as usual... everyone is interesting here). I arrived in Cologne and had one of the nicest welcomes ever! I walked out of the train station and viola! The grandest cathedral yet, listening to a trio including a violinist, an accordionist and some

Nothing really interesting happened at this race. I probably ran like crap that day. It was a race against all the local colleges in Detroit.



I remember my summer training vividly though. I did a lot of miles that summer and I remember meeting up at the Running Gear in Rochester and running up this huge dirt hill called Dutton Rd.



About this time I was soo happy I joined Cross at OU because I had soo many good times with all the people and made some great friends. I remember my first day at OU I was sitting down with all my friends and I saw a person from high school that was in the "popular crowd". I remember just laughing inside about how I made some great friends already and now she was standing here looking around for places to eat her lunch.



Another story I remember about this time was our first time trials for OU. I remember how we were supposed to run 5 miles in a race, but Coach marked it off as about a mile too long.



When Billy crossed the 3 mile . . . Read More..
