I won't be around for a little while...

...because I'm going on holiday tomorrow (Friday)!!!

Me and Iain are going to Scotland for a week so I won't be online for about seven days or so.

We are going to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Roslyn and Kirkaldy in Fife and are really looking forward to the break!

Will miss you guys while I'm gone!

Have a great trip Canyon!!

But you know that I will be very disappointed if you don't return with some digital pics of that famous lake dweller up there.

And watch out for all those castle ghosts.

Yeah-- their Scottish accents are so bad it's scary! Can't understand the buggers!

And while you're there, why not look up good old Lord Clarence Chumley? I'm sure he'd love to view some tapestries with you.

Hey Canyon.

Have a good trip. And always remember, don't sleep in the middle of the road.

I'M BACK!!!

Hi there folks!

Me and Iain got back from Scotland earlier today and had a great time.

it took us about six and a half ours to get there on Friday (as Glasgow is about 400 miles from Bristol).

I have to say that the archetecture in Glasgow and Edinburgh is absolutely stunning and the people are very friendly.

Westford, Glasgow is amazing and we were really sad to leave. I really love the fact that they have an underground tram system which made things a helluva lot easier. We mainly travelled to the Buchannan Street area and spent our evenings in some of the pubs. There is a really nice pub called The Phoenix and one night we found a pub called The Counting House which apparently used to be a bank, (but unfortuntely, we never found it again!).

Will be posting some pictures here soon.

Really missed you guys.

Dull? After what happened here the past few days? Where have you been?

Sorry.. got a bit carried away... Welcome back, Canyon.
