Journal Entry:
Left Edinburgh. First stop was at Jedburgh Abbey. Another beautiful, ruined abbey. It's very nice, but I can definitely tell I'm starting to get imune to this stuff.

Next stop was a section of Hadrian's wall. A wall built all the way across England by the Romans to keep the Scotts out. It's not all that inspiring anymore, but it made for a nice walk and we got to watch part of a fox hunt. 6 horses and riders, 30+ dogs, 1 wounded fox, yeah that's a sport.

Stoped at Richmond to see the castle there. Here again, very nice, but after a while all the castles start to look the same. The one nice thing was the thick fog gave the castle grounds a very erie quality.

At York Andrew (our bus driver) made everyone dinner. Somehow the hostel had my bed reservation down as a female, and there were no other male rooms avavailable, so I ended up gettin a nice single for the price of a dorm bed. I went out with the group for a while, but ended up coming home early to luxurate in the privacy.
