Edinburgh was possibly one of my favourite places we visited over the course of our six week trip… I loooove this place and will definitely be back for a longer visit one day.
So deciding to take on a 13km hike in 30+ degree heat (86+ degrees fahrenheit) was possibly not the greatest idea but hey we made it…
First stop – Angel of the North. This seemly random statue chilling near a highway is the most viewed piece of art in the world – pretty cool! Other than that there isn’t much more to say about it… Moving on!
Day five we jumped on the coach and started our Topdeck tour throughout the UK & Ireland. Like much of our trip we somehow lucked out and had amazing sunny weather throughout the UK… must’ve brought it with us!
Our last full day (and a half) in London consisted of copious amounts of climbing and a couple of ferry rides which resulted in some bad sunburn for me (only I would suffer from sunburn in London…).
LONDON! Feeling a bit jet lagged and wobbly we seized the day and headed into Westminster nice and early. After mistakenly admiring Westminster Cathedral for 15 minutes we realised Westminster Abbey (which we were actually searching for) was a few blocks over. Oops.
With my recent trip to Europe being my first ‘big trip’ there was a lot of planning, budgeting and pre-booking required to ensure everything went smoothly. We spent over six weeks traveling twelve countries and also had to factor in 24 hours worth of flying to and from Europe (why is Australia so far away from everything…) and of course the dreaded jet lag.
ME! That’s who. Yeah sorry probably got your hopes up it was someone cool. Anyway I’m back after six weeks of trekking through Europe. I visited twelve countries over 42 days and did loads of dorky (but also great) touristy things.
In a few days I’ll be boarding my first ever international flight! Over the next six weeks I’ll be exploring England, Scotland, Wales, North Ireland, Ireland, France, Spain, Monaco, Switzerland, Vatican City and Italy. This trip has been 2 years in the making so I’m super excited to finally be jetting off.
