Where I stayed
Pringles Ingle Bed and Breakfast
Like I said in my title, the tour of the Scottish highlands was amazing. Our tour guide, Matt knew so much about Scotland, and was very funny. The hostels on the tour were the only downfall. One of the hostels never had any plugins, and you had to make your own bed from scratch, they never even put the duvet cover on. They also wanted to charge me £1 per 20 minutes on the Internet. At least you had some room in that one though, the other one was very small. The kitchen had trouble fitting 3 people in it, when there was around 20 people wanting to cook. And the rooms were much the same. Other than that, the trip went awesome. There were so many cool people on the trip, unfortunately none were going to Ireland next week as I am. I fly to Belfast tomorrow morning, so I amstaying at a bed and breakfast tonight. They had no wi/fi so I am at a mcdonalds with my iPod right now. As soon as I get to a realcomputer, I will upload my pictures and go into more detail about the tour. The highlight of the tour had to be going to a caile (cay-lee) which is a fun dance thing. There was line dancing, circle dancing, and some real whacky ones. Lots of fun. We also saw loch ness, but never saw Nessie. We saw some amazing scenery, if only it was a little warmer and greener... Awesome waterfalls, and views over cliffs by the ocean.The mountains here are also cool, they are no where as big as the Rockies, but have such a radiating beauty radiating from there mist shrouded peaks. Lots of castles and battlefields, where they have the battle lines where they actualy were during the battle. I really enjoy this way of traveling, and want to do another tour like this. Maybe in Ireland? I think I'm only going to make it a total of 3 months, with the way I'm spending money I may not have a choice. I have decided to take a week off somewhere warm and have a proper vacation. So I might be back even sooner. Hopefully I can get some pictures up tomorrow. Miss you all, take care.
