Hey last day of the tour went well...although to be fair I was comatose for the majority of it...first things first we went down to Loch Ness...in the day this time and we did a Nessie dance...it was really stupid but really funny watching everyone do it! Then we went to Urquhart castle...one of those big famous one's on Loch Ness and although the castle is in ruins...they charge 7 pounds to get in...that's criminal! So instead we climbed the wall (our tour guide said we could) and then a guard came and yelled at us...I love a good adventure! We went to the Culloden battlefield where the last major battle in Scotland occured! And it was a bloody one and we also went to the Clava cairns...which are almost like a mini stonhenge...but you can walk in them and everything! For lunch we went to a pub called THE TIPSY LAIRD where I iundulged in one of Scotland's traditional dishes...that's right...deep fried HAGGIS! With an IRN-BRU of course! Thats about it...aside from my sleeping droolfest :p...yummy...it was tough to say goodbye to people that I have gotten to know so well...but emails work pretty well...one of the girls that I met lives in London (but from New Zealand) and I'm going to hang out with her a bit when I go! All in all it was a wicked tour and if you get the chance GO!!! It's is an amazing experience, super fun and pretty cheap! You'll have a lot of fun! Goodnight...time to hit the sack...it's only 9:30 here but the whole not sleeping thing is hard work!
