Craig's Travel Log

I have wanted to go to backpack Europe ever since my dad began telling me stories of the trip he took when he was in college. I am taveling with my friends from high school and earlier: Ryan, Matt, Brett, Wes, and Scotty. I am so thankful and privileged to finally be on my way. What will I experience once I go? There's only one way to find out.

SCOTLAND- Sorry for not posting this sooner, but I got home and crashed and kind of forgot to finish it. Scotland was amazing. I decided to try and see some of the highlands, and so I took a flight to Inverness. From there I took a bus past Loch Ness (no, I didn't see Nessie), and met up with Matt in a bunk house in Sligachan. The next day we headed to Portree and explored the Isle of Skye, seeing some beautiful scenery and the castle of the McLeod clan. The next day we took a fairy to Mallaig and then took a steam train (the one seen on the Harry Potter movies) to Fort William. Matt stayed there while I went to Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is a beautiful hilly city with gorgeous castles and a beautiful Royal Mile of shops restaurants and bars. I visited the main castle and also St Giles cathedral. I then took a trip out to St. Andrews. I saw the remains of an old cathedral there as well as an old castle. But the main show is the Old Course. It was a beautiful course and it is right on near the ocean. I headed back to Edinburgh to check out and take a night bus to London.
