DAY 3: FORT WILLIAM 1/2

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Diary

Slightly exhausted and again with only few minutes of reserve we are coming to the train station in Glasgow. Place, where we need to buy our tickets, is not located in the main building but few meters next to it, where already 10 people are waiting in a queue. Luckily we are not in Czech Republic so in 2 minutes we are speaking with a man behind the desk. We are asking him for two Grand tour of Scotland tickets. These tickets will allow us to choose 4 travel days during consecutive 8 days on the route we have planned. For the price 89 pound it pays off the most and you also pay for the experience of travelling around scenery of Scottish highlands by train. Mírně vyčerpaní s opět jen pár minutovým předstihem se dobelháváme na hlavní nádraží v Glasgow. Místo, kde prodávají lístky, se nenachází v budově nádraží, […]

In the snack bar at the couch station there are only crisps, so we are taking two packs and getting on to the national express bus number two. We can say right away that our driver is from Scotland. I am maybe the only person in the world, but I am still surprised with the accent. I has not expected that it will be really that strong how it is shown in a movies, but it truly is. […]

It would not be me, if I had not left everything until the very last minute. So the day before our trip, 8 hour shift before me, there are plenty of things waiting for me to be done. Unfortunately today is Sunday and everything in Brighton closes at 5 o´clock, 6 if you are lucky. We need to print bus tickets. National Express, which we are using for 2 ways, does not accept tickets shown on mobile phones. Only in case you pay another pound for e-ticket, that looks completely same as the normal one. Also the date for applying for interruption of studies, which I have successfully forgotten, is 25th of August and we are coming back on 28th. “Never mind, everything will be fine, “ I am saying to myself. In my work I am asking my friend, if he knows a place where I can print something […]
