Well everyone, us three fat asses did it, we hiked up Arthur Seat! I mean at some points I was unsure if we would but when we got to the top it was so worth it! I believe it was 250m above sea level, it is the highest point of 3 that make up a volcano! Oooo! Also fun fact it so said to have something to do with King Arthur and his knights, so pretty cool! On our hike up we took off layers because we began to sweat, then at the top it was so windy we could have blown over, so we put our jackets back on and had some mean cold sweats going on!! The view was unreal, 360 degree of Edinburgh! It is full of many hills which I had no idea! After we make the climb we treated ourselves with Burger King, why you ask? Cause why the fuck not. Mama wanted a coke. Also I got in the habit of calling myself mama, not sure why but it makes sense. Later that day we went to a small pub and got a bit tipsy before we went to the Scotch Whiskey Experience. Kenzie was sweating buckets because she has over active sweat glands.. Apparently and we sat so close that I got hot too! But it was interesting to hear how it was made, then finally when the tasting came ( the part I was looking forward to the most) it literally smelled and tasted like shitty tequila. When in Scotland you do what the Scots do so I downed it like a champ. But you for sure won’t see me drinking Scotch Whiskey annnnnnyyyy time soon. With my buzz holding on strong we went for dinner and got even more wine, and we all agreed we wanted to go out and get smashed. So that’s what we did, we picked up a 2/6 of vodka to drink in the hostel before we went to a skeezy cheap club called the Hive. We got there around 1145 and it was bumpin for a Thursday night, we downed a couple drinks and hit the d floor hard. But when I say ALL the girls were dressed like sluts from grade 9 I mean it. And the guys here not that cute, which totally sucks. Kenzie and I ended up getting smashed! The bar smelt like puke, like everywhere but it was so awesome, it had like 5 parts to it and 2 huge separate dance floors! One side played like house and dance music the other played old school stuff and I was a sweaty monster by the end of the night, my leather leggings were stuck to me. We rolled into bed at around 330, and I think Kenzie woke up the whole room full of 11 other people. So that was good. Oh also our hostel is cool, but we are the odd women out who don’t speak French or Spanish. We hang out alone but I’m more than okay with that, dread locks aren’t my thang. This morning we slept in and woke up a bunch hurting units, haha we didn’t do much, just walked around downtown then took a bus to the beach. It was so fucking windy and the water was ice cold, but I mean who can say they put their feet in the ocean in Scotland. This girl can. The weather here is also crazy!!! One minute it’s windy as fuck, then sunny and hot, then it starts raining, and they throw a curve ball by adding hail?! Towmorrow at 6 am we fly to Belfast! I can’t wait to move on and see what is next in store for us! Also I truly believe that this whole trip should we taped for a tv series, I’m hilarious and Kenzie and Aly are epic. Till next time I post from Ireland :) xxx
First taste of Edinburgh
Farewell London, I can’t wait until we meet again!
So last night we had our last evening in London and I don’t think we could have said goodbye a better way! We did laundry during the morning for some fresh lulus, thank god Kenzie was out of clean undies .. So she went commando. Then we all came back and packed whatever we could and headed to the cutest little place called “Gordon’s Wine Bar” it is the oldest wine bar in London and very cute! We got 2 bottles of wine sat at the heated outdoor tables got tipsy and talked about our journey so far! I wish we found the place sooner because it wasn’t that expensive and very good!! After we went to the London Eye at night, it was way better than the day! Way less people in the areas and we got to see London lit up at night! So beautiful, the mix of old historic buildings with the new high rises. Breath taking! To finish the night we took Kenzie to the Canadian Pub for some pontine and more wine. The night was early but thank god because we had to be up at 7 the next morning packed and out the door by 730 to take the tube ( during rush hour ) to the Victoria Coach station to wait for our train. Walking an hour with my back pack on was HELL, when I say I broke a sweat I mean it.. So now were on the bus about hmm 5 and a half hours in, dying. It smells like actual B.O mixed with like old people, we couldn’t get off the bus until half way for only 15 mins, enough for a quick smoke and a quick pee. Back at it! The bus for sure sounded better than it is, they said plug ins for everyone, one per two seats, they said spacious, yeah if that means shoulder to shoulder with your feet squished under a seat that a stranger is practically in your lap, it’s spacious. Also zero food served as promised so mama wants a Big Mac right about now, with a large coke cause that’s the shit i do like. Anyways we will get there soon and make it through, we’re off to Edinburgh, Scotland! Our hostel is supposed to actually be like a castle! Wish me luck with whatever adventure I will be on next! Xx
On Thursday during the day we went I universal studios tour of the making of Harry Potter, it had all the real props and the sets were set up just like in the movie! Only a Harry Potter fan would appreciate this I suppose! They had the Great Hall set up, the Weasles cottage, Dumbuldoors office, the boys dorm room, and many more including the whole Diagon Alley! It was unreal to see everything and just how much had went into making the movie and using the props! That night I met up with my friend Chad whom I met a weekend before and he is a mechanical engineer in the British Army for they’re jets. I actually got to go on base after signing in , which I thought I was going to get deported!! But he showed me the jets he worked on and around the base! It was so much fun! Who can say they’ve done that! Friday night we drank 2 bottles of wine and met up with a girl from St.Albert that was here! We got 2 more bottles of wine and decided we were too drunk to go out!! Haha Saturday night Chad decided to come out with the girls haha so he drove into London and he got here so late we were drunk already, then played fuck the dealer and he got even more shitfaced! We got so drunk and stayed in so late that it was 1 before we even left so we couldn’t get in anywhere good and came back here! I had a good night and I loved my last awesome weekend in London. Tuesday morning we take a 9 hour bus to Edinburgh, Scotland I can’t wait to leave but I hate to go! I will be back in London hopefully for school! Fingers crossed! Xx
Today we actually got some culture and booze. We took a tour to go see Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford! The Queen was in the castle and it was huge!! So beautiful! The Stonehenge was very cool! I can’t get over how they actually built it!! It was so windy and after hearing the stuff we left fast because I was cold and how much can you stare at 15 rocks. Haha!! Oxford was great to see as well, I learned so much that I didn’t know! Like Oxford is a university made up of different collages! Who knew! Oh and for anyone over seas that wants to go get a grade A education it costs over $80,000 to go, Mark I feel like you should almost thank me for not being the brightest light bulb in the box cause there is zero way I could even dream about getting in! The hottie nerds there were unbelievable , they were checkin me out like no one knows. What I lack in brains I make up for in personality..? After the longest day ever I can’t wait for a great nights sleep :) cheers bitches XOXO
Can life get better?
Watching the Canadian men beat Sweden in the Olympic Finals at a London pub crowded in with the rest of the crazy Canadians in London!!
In Piccadilly Circus!! One of the only nice days so far so we took advantage and went walking around! We walked through Harrods again and like last time I died.. I really need that rich husband soon because I see way to much I want!!
We ended up crashing the Brit 2014 awards on Wednesday night! We just went to star spot and ended up finding last minute tickets! It was so awesome to be at the show! We got to see Bruno Mars, Lordes, Beyoncé, Katy Perry and so many other amazing people preform! The whole time I was drooling over being in the same room as One Direction, Harry Styles took my heart! After I went on a hot date with a guy named Dave, I can’t say I hit it off with him but a couple free drinks never hurt anyone! So many outstanding things have already happened this trip I don’t even know how it could get better! Xoxo
