to the boards!!
Uk huh? Nice pick for your trip. I have been to theUK a few times, cities mostly with some small town day trips. But do not pass up the chance to spend a couple of days in Dublin, The city walks are wicked, and if you can afford to vistit some of the historical sites ( which I could only view from outside due to budget restraints) there are many to pick from.
There is a frquient train from Dublin to Belfast which I would also put onto my list a places to see, the Giants Causeway should be one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The city of Belfts might seem a bit dark, and its recent past have given it a bit of a bad rap, but its rebounding nicley and I met many really nice people.
You can Pick up a flight o Easyjet or Ryanair to Glasgow, which is only about 35 min by air. And Industrail city that I wish I had of spend more time there to appreciate what it had to offer, so many people rave about the night life, but I unfortunatly did not get into it. ( one of my travel regrets)
About an hour by train you can end up in Edinburgh, where I spend 3 days and had an amazing time, the night life, the history, the old city, trust me you never run out of things to see there. Prob near the top of my fav list of cities.
When you in Scotland, PLEASE PLEASE make the time to head north to the Highlands, ( Another regret) these are suppose to be some of the most beutiful landscapes in the world, and plenty of small towns to vist on the way. Check hostel pin up boards for people going your way who might have rented a car, you might be able to hitch a ride for some fuel.
And then there is London, and what can I say about London, Its Big, Historic, and almost never ending, you would need a week just to get adjusted. but I loved it. Every corner you turn has a story. but do not expect much in the way of cheap there, its rather expencive.
Either way you will have a blast.
Hope that helps a little.
And I am sorry your post took so long to answer!
