      ... is slow but at least it's something right?!? Look out for me being online more as of the 19th of November.

      Now if you've been paying attention you may be wondering why I'm getting Internet if I'm due to come home in less than 6 weeks. Well I've spent a lot of time thinking about whether I should go home or not. I would really like to go home, since I miss home, I miss my family, and I miss my friends. It's hard to make friends here since everyone ...

      After a busy neolithic day yesterday, I spent my last day in the beautiful Orkney Islands going East. It's a bit difficult to say it was really east because the island is only about 80 klms long from top to bottom. Today I made my way back through Kirkwall and headed south on the road to the Tomb of the Eagles. I really had no idea what this was except that it was neolithic (what a surprise!) and had been accidentally found by the farmer who was looking for some field stones to build ...

Feeling very full but knowing this was my only meal today I wobbled out to the car for the early morning trip to Skara Brae. This village is the most complete neolithic settlement in Europe today. It is older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge. Dates are between 3100BC - 2500BC. This makes the settlement 5000 years old! I'm really young! :) The inhabitants seem to have ...

      After an early morning to pack up all my rubbish, I headed down to the breakfast place with computer in tow to check emails etc. This hotel really needs to do something about its internet access! Most of the crew arrived right on 7:30 as we had to get onto the bus this morning and check out of this beautiful hotel. I went back to my room after a brekky of veggie sausages, tomatoes, scrambled egg and mushrooms. There was tea, toast and a ...

      ... decks; although the weather was bright there was still a brisk sea breeze with enough of a nip to remind us that summer was still not yet here.

      At around 10.00am there was a demonstration from the beauty salon, where a volunteer was given a 15 minute hot stone massage, no doubt to try to sell the spa treatments. I have had one of these massages in the past and it is a lovely relaxing experience.

      Afterwards there was some fun on the aft ...
