Flight Is Booked
So, it is now official. I booked our tickets on Tuesday and we are leaving on April 25th. The flight leaves at 8:25 pm and we arrive in Glasgow at 8 am on the 26th. Flight works out perfect because we should be able to get a good 4 or 5 hours sleep on the plane and be in reasonable shape on the 26th. Only problem so far is that we have to look into the "entry requirements" for Scotland. Some countries require you to have to show some means of leaving. Considering we booked a one way flight we may have to buy a U.K. rail pass to show them that we do intend on leaving and not mooching off of them.
I'll explain what the plan is for those of you who don't know. My buddy Graham and I are going to land in Scotland and stay with Grahams Aunt or Grandma??? (im not to sure) and from there we want to see some of the U.K. We don't have a set path yet but ultimately we would like to see a bunch of the U.K. and maybe catch a soccer game in England and see some castles in Scotland. From there we want to head across to France wether it's by boat or the tunnel that connects the U.K. to France. What ever is cheaper. Then from there we plan on heading north because I have a friend named Anne that is letting us stay with her for a few days. From Holland we plan on going through Europe in no specific order. Just take it day by day. Ultimately we want to end up in Australia but we haven't decided on our route yet.
We plan on staying in hostels and using http://www.couchsurfing.com/ for places to stay. Im hoping to write on here every couple of days to keep people posted on where and what were doing. Ill upload pics ont facebook as well. Anyways thats all for now.
