I realize that I haven't written a post in a full month, but as I'm sure most of you understand, I have been busy with finals, essays, rehearsals, and procrastination. My bad. Please accept my deepest apology.
|The Beautiful Highlands and My Butt.|
3. The weather made their climb impossible and they were stuck.
2. They were ill prepared for the climb and are now freezing in their unsightly bermuda shorts.
Our next stop was a castle. Well... castle ruins. And NO. I wasn't the one to ruin it. It was only about a ten minute stop so I quickly wandered about taking pictures and climbing over barriers that definitely weren't meant to be climbed over. And then I was late to the bus again. Oops. Whatever. YOLO. Except no because I hate that phrase. Forget I said it. I suppose I could delete it... But nah. This is how my mind works and lucky you, you get to read my crazy mind.
|THE FORBIDDEN FREAKING FORREST|
Other parts of Glencoe were lovely as well, such as the three sister mountains: Faith, Hope, and Charity, the frozen waterfalls, and the tree that mysteriously grows out of solid rock. I do have to admit, though, while talking about Glencoe, I can't help thinking "And four for you, Glen Coco. You go Glen Coco!" Sorry. Call it what you will, but Mean Girls has fabulous quotes. Also Anchorman. And Harry Potter......... Speaking of movies, Braveheart happened here in Scotland. I learned about William Wallace and stuff, but I took too long to write this blog and have forgotten the details (Most of it). Watch the movie for more information. I did see his monument though. And the Stirling castle from afar. It looked really nice and I am a bit disappointed the tour didn't stop there. I wanted go inside, but the tour was now on the way back to Edinburgh.
|I couldn't find my haggis picture, |
so here is my mouth that ate it instead.

|The Vaults of Edinburgh. BOO!|
|Colin and I in Edinburgh. Some Asian person took |
the picture. Not lying, they always take the best pictures.
|All I wanted was to make it back to uni. |
Is that too much to ask?!!?
The next day, we went back into Glasgow and she took me around to a few places of interest before my bus finally came in. I actually made it to my bus on time, but Jesus punished me for being late to the last two with no toilet paper, the scent of baby poo, and an ice cold bus. Eventually, I made it back to Birmingham and caught the wrong bus home. -____- It was fun walking back to uni in the rain at midnight alone and with luggage for fifteen minutes... Not.
And the moral of the story, kids, is Scotland is great, Rusty is bad with busses. The End.
