Hello All, well we've finally made it to Scotland after a gruelling 9 hour bus ride yesterday from London. We're in a internet cafe in Glasgow awaiting our meet-up with Heather in a train station just outside the city. Jay has been uber excited for days now.
We'd heard that Glasgow was a scary place but so far we've found it to be great. The hostel we're in is massive and they have a free coffee machine so what more do you need really! We got to see some early Olympic coverage too as the heptathlon coverage started at 2:30am here.
Our last night in London we made it our sole goal to figure out the underground system and find Abbey Rd. Since there was only 2 of us at the famous road crossing, we decided to take a series of photos of us crossing and Jay will photoshop it when we get home to look like a gaggle of Jay and Alex's crossing the road. The sight of us weaving through rush hour traffic to get these photos would have horrified Chris (Jay's mom) and certainly pissed off a few local commuters. After this we cruised down to Buckingham Palace and walked through St. James park at night.
PS- Jay's SD70 email has been taken away from her (boo hoo) so if you're trying to send her an email please send it to email@example.com. You can always post a message on this thing to us as well.

We live and work on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada but travel feeds our soul. We can only live in paradise for so long before our desire to explore must be satisfied. Past adventures have seen us tramp around Europe for six months, live/work/travel around the beaches of Australia for another six months, Beijing, Colombia, the madness of India, all throughout Canada/USA closer to home and (comparitively) boring all-inclusive trips to Mexic... full info
