Alex Janzen: Adventure Time
It’s hard to wrap my mind around with where to start in this blog. I have been so stressed in trying to plan trips, start my coursework, and plan for what I’m going to do in the summer months. Our plan to take a trip to Ireland fell through since flights are way cheaper in April and May. My cousin also lives in Dublin so I have been trying to plan to stay with her. She is studying nursing so she is insanely busy and stressed with studying. Planning to visit her has become increasingly difficult and I’m worried I’ll miss out on the twenty pound round flight deals. Hopefully it will work out. If I could start this adventure from the beginning I would plan all my trips as early as possible. Starting my coursework ASAP would have also been ideal.
Erica and I did make it to Inverness, Lochness, and Elgin. This was our first real exploration of another area of Scotland, other than Stone Haven. Inverness was breathtaking, we had perfect weather while we were there, and the town is so adorable. We planned to take a trip down to Lochness to see the famous lake but of course the transportation to get down there is ridiculous. Only one bus a day in the morning. Too bad we didn’t look into this before we slept and got up after it left. After dealing with the disappointed I thought of the idea to bike to it. We found the cheapest bike rental shop in town and made our way. The bike ride was so enjoyable, especially with such great weather. It took us about five hours to do the whole bike ride; we were rushed in time to get the bikes back, so we could not stay at the lake for long. But it was still worth it. During our trip to Inverness we were keen to enjoy the nightlife. But the travelling must have gotten to us because we lost all motivation to go out and went to sleep at a decent time. I would have liked it if we stayed one more night to explore Inverness in more depth both day and night since our trip felt very rushed.
