好久不见 – Long time no see..

I’m so sorry.. I have to admit I have sort of forgotten about the blog because I’ve been focused on other things – But now I’m back, and I already got another blog post ready 🙂
Anyways, just to update you guys a little bit on my life – I am currently in Scotland visiting ChenChen, I’ve been here since July 4th, and I will stay until July 25th. We haven’t really planned anything while I’m here, we will go to London for a weekend and that’s about it. ChenChen will also be moving into a new apartment in Scotland, and oh my.. There is a lot of paperwork that needs to be done in this country!!

On wednesday we decided that we wanted to get away from the city for a while, so we booked train tickets to a small town called Oban, it’s a very small place, actually it’s just a bay area, but it was really to stay there for 2 days. We stayed at a Bed & Breakfast which was really nice and really British! (you can imagine the curtains and the decorations in the room).. But aside from that, we had a great time.. My biggest problem, which is a little bit awkwardI don’t really like seafood.. I mean I can eat salmon, but that’s about it, so that was a bit tricky since we went to a town that is well known for all it’s seafood restaurants, but ChenChen – he was in heaven! haha. Somehow I managed to find something to eat the 2 days we were there though, and I even tasted all of the seafood that ChenChen ordered (Prooooud of myself.. hihi)

Aside from eating seafood, there were many other things to do in Oban, but as the weather was not too nice the first day we ended up just walking around in the town, taking some pictures and just enjoying the silence and fresh air.. The second day we went on a small boat trip, just to see the area around Oban, and all the small islands. The most exciting part of the boat trip was when we came to a place where there were lots of seals swimming around in the sea, and just relaxing on rocks!
Also we went up to a monument called Mc Caig’s Tower – as it is a small town it was not far to walk, but can you imagine steep uphill for about 20 minutes and wearing waaaay too much clothes because it was cold in the morning?! I felt so sweaty and nasty after finally arriving at the top. It was worth it though! I can describe the view in one word – Stunning!

  1. Seafood, I shall never enter a restaurant famous for its seafood! I guess I am pretty similar to you in this aspect. I can handle few fish dishes but thats about it. Shrimps? Nay! Lobster? Nay! Mussels? Double Nay!! Oh well, but at least you had fun there and he loved the food 🙂

    1. Good to know I’m not the only person who can’t handle sea food 😛 I actually tried mussels, lobster, and crab though! And it all tasted horrible haha.

  2. You can’t go to Oban and not eat some form of seafood, it’s a Scottish tradition! My great-grandfather was born in a small cottage near Oban, he went to school on Kerrera, the wee island you see from Oban bay. My Grandpa worked there for years too, working on the ship that took people to Mull and Iona.
