Advantages Travelling on my own more, having The Backstreet Boys answer my question on TV & seeing them live
Disadvantages Losing Holly, getting lost outside O2 arena, my mum being ill, me needing tests/migraines
- Introduction -2009 was a pretty noteworthy year, so I thought I'd give it a go of reviewing it, incase it interests anyone, I guess. There have been some highs and lows for me, im quite proud of what I've achieved, while im glad that the lows weren't as low as they potentially could have been. 2009 has definitely made me count my blessings and wonder what the future might hold.
- My Achievements -
It was rather intimidating on the train at times, when the border crossing patrolmen came investigating, not because I had anything to hide of course but because of the language barriers, though I think they realised I was British quite quickly and I did have my passport to hand. Hearing all the different European languages being spoken in the carriage made me a bit home sick, though it was also quite cool in a sense too, the train took three or so hours with at least a couple of border crossing type stops, so it was quite an adventure for me, considering I really haven't done much of this sort of travel, if any before then!. I wasn't so lucky with the weather in Slovenia, unfortunately, there was quite alot of rain and not much blue sky but I still got to see places and I was just happy to be with my friend, really. I saw the city and lake Bled, Bled castle and Predjamski Castle and Postojna caves, which was cool as it was a really big cave network with a fun little train ride to take you right into the caves. The country is definitely interesting, it reminded me of Scotland in some ways, which is probably why my friend is interested in coming here and seeing more of my country sometime (so far she's only been to Edinburgh for a day on a package holiday).While staying in Slovenia, I also sampled some Slovenian snacks, which were very nice and my friends parents gave us a couple of delicious dinners, which was very nice of them. They had alot of questions about me and my country, which my friend had to translate as her mum didn't talk English, it was a bit awkward at time with the language barrier but I got by ok and apparently her parents have said that they thought I was nice and polite and her mum told me I'm welcome to visit some other time, so, I might do that, though I have also told her that she can come and stay with us and I'll show her around where I live and we could go back through to Edinburgh and Stirling and wherever else but I don't know when or if that might happen.
