Europe Trip- Part Three


Scotland in one word is just beautiful. I loved it. We rented a cute bright red ford to take with us. The ride from Doncaster to Dumbfries was about 5 hours. We stopped in Yorkshire to eat lunch and then we took a long waterfall hike in this place called Ingleton. The first part of the hike was one mile of rocky foresty land. Then we walked up farmlands for three miles. We saw all sorts of sheep and cows everywhere and you had to be careful not to provoke them. The last two miles were the same rocky forest land as was in the beginning. There were these wooden structures with money stuck in them littered around the area. After walking we were all muddy and tired so we went to our friends, Joshua and Ananya's house. Their mom is my mom's cousin so they invited us to stay the night. We stayed up all night playing monopoly and jumping on the trampoline. Finally they went to sleep because they had school the next day. We left around 10 the next morning. We stopped at this cute place called Lake District where there are a bunch of connected lakes. Because we were pressed for time we just fed some ducks and went to a cute cafe where I got hot chocolate, Kiren got ice cream, mom got a latte, Neil got hot chocolate and my dad got tea. Then we drove back home to our cousin's home in Doncaster.

After we got home from Scotland we had to pack up and leave in an hour. We went to my grandpa Matthew's house. We ate dinner there and then the next morning we ate nutella and toast and jam and jelly and eggs and sausages. Then we drove to London. We had to drop off the car because it was a rental. After that we went to the train station to buy subway tickets. We took the subway, then a double Decker bus and then the subway again. Next we visited Buckingham Palace and walked through Kensington Gardens. Then we took the subway to 10 Downing Street and Big Ben. Then we took the subway to the London Eye and saw the Royal Stables. During the changing of the guards we met theses guys making a video dancing to some random k-pop song and he looked just like PSY from Gangnam Style. We took a picture with him. Afterwords we visited the Tower Bridge and Saint Paul's Cathedral. By then it was really late so we went back to our hotel. The next morning after mass we took the Eurostar, a train that goes underwater, to Paris.

  1. Hi Yuna. Glad to see you guys are having a great Europe trip. We are all missing you guys here in the land of the boring. I broke into your house the other day to water your plants and walked around a bit to find a half-filled bottle of orange juice on the table. Took a sip of it and realized that it had gone bad. :)
    Any sightings of the Duchess of Cambridge?

    I expect to hear a strong British accent when I see you next week. Safe travels!

    1. Thank you! No sightings yet, but I told Trish to be on the lookout. We say posters of Beyonce everywhere though :)

  2. The pictures are getting better and better.I give up,I like everything here. THey have Oreo Dairy Milk??!!!
