... put more that one location per post.

We left the King's Cross Station (a large tube station in London, which I travel through everyday) early afternoon on Thursday. The train ride was close to 5 hours, the time was passed with a deck of cards and friends, (another girl and I learned how to play Blackjack).

... all night, grab our bags and try to remain patient as we move at sloth-like speed down the aisle. Finally, we're here! The airport is tiny, but efficient. Scotland waits just outside the sliding doors, but, alas, there is no tour guide to meet us. So, we sit, cooling our heels, while we try to find out what happens next.

... us all over the place, and we walked through the beautiful Botanical Gardens so we could meet up with the rest of her family, Ian, Caitlin and Holly, and we had a meal together at a lovely Thai restaurant. Anna and I went and looked at a dance show as part of the festival and Bo went back with Ian and the girls to their house. Anna and I bussed back to her place, and then it was time for sad goodbyes.
