Well, here we are. Last day. One note to interject before we proceed. Yesterday Cam and I talked it over and decided to check out of the Cameron House a day early. It’s extremely expensive, nearly £100 more per night than any of our other hotels, and it’s 30-40 minutes from Glasgow. Which means that in order to get our rental car back and make our 7:30am flight we’d have to wake up at what is, by my math, too damn early. So we informed the Cameron

Got to sleep in a little this morning and the jet lag improved slightly so we were fairly refreshed when we headed out for the York rail station. In less than 24 hours we had learned quite a lot about York public transport so we were able to catch a quick bus and made it to the station with 20+ minutes to spare. Which was great since it turned out I printed the wrong tickets and had to bust it back to the ticket kiosk for a redo. Continue reading Welcome to Scotland!
