Toss the Beer in the Hill

It’s been ages since I arrived and started volunteering in Banavie. I had a great time and pretty much enjoying all the works. During the first three days, I had not many tasks to do as there were only 3 to 5 people staying at the hostel. Works usually start at 10 a.m. (sometimes an hour early during peak time) until midday.

The main destination was Alnwick Castle (spelled without the sound of ‘W’) in Northumberland, North East England. If you could spot … Continue reading Alnwick Castle and the Ghost Story of Bamburgh Castle

I feel that I will be annoying by keep telling them to repeat what they say simply because I don’t get the words and I don’t understand how they are speaking. Their English is just… … Continue reading People Make Glasgow
