10/11/2009: "Post Trip - Things I learned"Listening to: nothing
Current mood: lazy
Well, we've been back a week now. Work was as mind-numbing as usual. Since I haven't exactly seen any clamoring for a post about Whitby (or, "dear old Whitby" as Lynnea and I now like to call it) I shall, I think, put it off further. It's Sunday and I'm lazy and I just don't think I have a full post in me today.
Meanwhile, some things I learned from the trip (in no particular order):
1. I hate cobblestones.
2. French speakers are rather more intimidating to me than I might have expected.
3. Kippers are delicious
4. The middle ages was not a good time to live in Scotland.
5. Everything in Europe is very old, including the new stuff.
6. I really, really hate cobblestones.
7. British food is actually pretty good, but eating it for every meal is taxing.
8. As far as I can tell, you can't get bad food in Belgium.
9. Red Leicester is delicious
10. Cask ales are grand and all, but it rapidly gets difficult to tell them apart.
11. Cobblestones are made of evil.
12. The North Sea is rather windy.
13. I highly enjoy rail travel.
14. Haggis is made of love.
