UK Holiday (Part 2)

Edinburgh (3 nights)

stayed at Brodies Hostel which was good n very comfortable too. except that breakfast n free wi-fi not provided compared to Central Hostel, Riga. haha. here, we didn't pay to join any tour but we discovered a free tour n joined it. it was not bad i would say, very interesting as the tour guide was very knowledgeable n a nice n funny person.

this love shape pathway is not something that is very nice where u can lie down n take photo with. the truth is that this thing, is where ppl spit when they past by. ewwww...

The Royal Yatch of Brittania

traditional Scottish dish called Haggis.
it actually lamb internal organs with oats.
anybody up for it? well, i actually tried it.
to me, it tasted all nice at the beginning but after talking a bit more,
it started to taste weird. haha..

at a weaving factory where they make Scottish wear.

at Edinburgh Castle
the view from Edinburgh Castle

we also joined the tour to the Highlands which was very beautiful, but this is not free of course. hehe.. but it was worth it.

The Wallace Monument.

the awesome breath-taking scenery
Loch Tea
u can find this animal in the highlands of Scotland.

and also visited the whiskey factory. Scotland is famous for it's whiskey.

and we all got to taste a little whiskey,
some were even up to 35 yrs old.
but to me, it tasted horrible, coz i hate the taste of alcohol. haha.

after Edinburgh, headed to Glasgow for 2 nights.
continue on next post..


UK Holiday (Part 1)

during the winter holidays, went to UK for holiday with a few of my friends. there was quite a number of us going different places in different groups. my group had 6 ppl in total: me, Saac, Valynne, Charmaine, Brandon, Kelvin.

23rd January night, we left Moscow for Riga, Latvia, which is a country located beside Russia. there we are to catch the flight to London. to get to Riga, we took the train which is the cheapest way but it takes 15 hours to reach Riga. together on the train journey, we were with Sharon, Gan, Chia Zhen n Zi Hao as well (but their flights were a different one). on the train, we made a lot of new friends, and even played mafia with one of them.

we reached Riga, Latvia on the 24th and spent a night there. our flight to London was on 25th morning. after checking in at Central Hostel (the best hostel among all the other hostels we stayed at), went to explore Riga. Temperature there was extremely cold, - 25 degrees. our hands n faces felt numb walking in the cold.

we went to the famous Occupation Museum. and even went to the National Opera House to watch ballet Nutcracker at night. the ticket fare was very cheap and very worth it.

25th morning, took the flight from Riga to London. arrived at London on 25th noon. checked in at the hostel at Northfields. it was late by the time we did so, so we just headed down the road for dinner and to explore the area which had a lot of Indian shops (we assumed it was an Indian area. haha.) finally, had dinner of fish n chips.

the fish n chips was awesome. fresh fish n potatoes with free tartar sauce n tomato sauce.

the owner of the shop was reli nice, she even gave us extra free chips. hehe..

we spent 3 nights in London before our next destination, Edinburgh, Scotland. in London, we joined the tour which consists of the hop on hop off bus tour where we could see the entire London city and its attractions, n walking tours where we witness the changing of guards at Buckingham palace n King James palace.

for our 2nd plate of Fish n Chips, we had it at Sherlock Holmes where we were given a big amount of discount through the tour that we took.

for more photos, kindly see facebook

after London, headed to Edinburgh by bus. we took the overnight bus, so we spend the night sleeping on in the bus.
