Dream Vacation - Day 14
I also did a test run to the Hertz car rental place. I wanted to make sure I knew exactly how to get there as I would be leaving tomorrow and I didn't want to have to drag my two large bags around town. I'm glad I did this test run as it took me a while to find the Hertz but once I did I knew exactly which route I was going to take.
I also picked up a map of England. Since I was driving and I wasn't going to get a GPS as it cost an extra 18 pounds a day and I would have the car for 17 days it would cost way to much money. I figured I'd just get a very detailed map and use that instead.
Picked up some lunch while I was souvenir shopping. I debated the pass few days on weather or not I would get a kilt. I figured if I would get one that it would be awesome to get one in Scotland. But the more I thought about it the more I realized that I probably wouldn't wear it that much. And the cheap ones that I found for 25 pounds were for tourists and not true kilts. Those real authentic kilts cost 2 to 3 hundred pounds and there was no way I could afford that... so I opted not to buy a kilt.
After dinner I realized that I had not seen the city at night so I decided to walk around and see what everything looked like during the evening. I took a bunch of pictures but of course my cameras aren't the best at taking pictures in low light so I don't know if they will turn out or not.
I stumbled across an art exhibition at one of the local parks. It was titled "Field of Lights" and it was extremely beautiful. The entire park was covered in this glowing orbs that would change color from time to time. It was a pretty cool site.
I got back to the hostel around 11pm and called it a night. I have a long day of driving tomorrow. This will be my first time driving on the other side of the car and road... I'm extremely nervous.
