Denmark, Pemberton, Albany 2014

Had a week off and decided to go down south to Albany, Pemberton and Denmark, places I hadn’t been for about 10yrs so it was definitely time again!

London, England, Part 2 – Day at the Museum

The Natural History Museum is an amazing building and is packed full of enough interesting stuff to keep you occupied for an entire day. Screw six years of medical school, spend a week here and you should be ok. Did I mention it’s free? Pro tip: Come here on a weekend as it’s packed with school children on excursions during the week.

London, England, Part 1

After an amazing 7 weeks in Glasgow and Scotland, it was time to head back. The medical elective part of the trip was complete and we headed down to London and the rest of our holiday before heading back home.

London is a truly amazing city and I could definitely see myself living there when I grow up (yes I still young). On insistence from Steph, we went and visited Camden Town, a place packed with markets, crazy stalls and vintage stores (pretty much heaven for Steph).

We then headed over to Greenwich, definitely a place worth seeing if you’re ever in London. It’s definitely not the most touristy place in London, but that’s definitely a good thing. Take the light rail from the city centre out to the Docklands and walk the km or so to the top of the hill and you’ll find an observatory which pays tribute to astronomy and time, after all that is where Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) originated from. There are quite a few good restaurants nearby as well if you get hungry. The Cutty Sark nearby is also worth visiting. They rebuilt the base of the ship into a museum of sorts and most of the original ship remains. A quick visit into town for dinner with our friends and then watching Billy Elliott in the West End!

Drumnadrochit, Scotland

Another weekend, another visit up into the highlands. We caught the train from Glasgow to Inverness (the Highland Capital) and then took a bus to a small town called Drumnadrochit (pronounced drum-na-drock-it), which is an ideal place to visit Loch Ness.

There are quite a few good hills to climb around the town which offer panoramic views to Loch Ness and the surrounding valley. Really beautiful scenery, spend a good half day here and then make your way down to Urquhart Castle.
