Churches

Inverness

Near Culloden is the city of Inverness. This was where we stayed at when we visited the areas around Culloden. It’s an old city, very picturesque and pretty. The one-way streets, though, are rather strange and kinda stressful. I don’t know how to describe it. They’re one-way, but used as a two-way, but you have to wait your turn. I don’t know…

Anyway, we took a stroll around the area the day we left and climbed up to the hill where the Inverness Castle stood. The castle is, unfortunately, not open to the public and is actually currently being used as a courthouse.

One thing I noticed, most of the building and houses in Scotland were built with stone walls or tiny-pebbled roughcast, very different from England where most of the houses and buildings were built with bricks. I likes.

Also worth mentioning, the Scots were some of the  friendliest, most helpful and welcoming people I’ve ever came across, very similar to the Irish. Despite the constant gloomy weather, we haven’t came across anyone grumpy or unpleasant. Very refreshing.

Wesminster Abbey

Been a while since I last posted. Got a lotta catching up to do.

Anyways, didn’t get as much shots of the Westminster Abbey as I wanted to. Wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside in the first place, plus the dreary weather didn’t allow too many good shots outside. And like all the churches I’d gone to, the inside’s always better. These are the best I could take.

    Hard to believe this was the site of the royal wedding two years ago. It was actually much smaller than I had imagined it to be, but still pretty.
