Scotland 5: Day 44
04.13.16 | Ullapool Ferry Terminal | 12:11
I’m sitting in the Ullapool ferry terminal, just trying to keep out of the cold wind. I’m frustrated with the fact that I have to be out of the hostel every day from 10:00 until 16:30. I just walked up a hill and have come back to shower and possibly take a nap- nope. They told me I can’t be inside. Understand that it’s April in Scotland. There is cold weather and there is rain here, more often than not. I basically have no shelter during the day while I’m in this windy, seaport town. Once I’m allowed back in, I’m going to have to jump on the internet and see if I can afford another place. I’m budgeted to almost the dollar so this will be interesting, I’m sure. This isn’t normal. I have stayed in hostels all over the U.K., and in France,
Once I’m allowed back in, I’m going to have to jump on the internet and see if I can afford another place. I’m budgeted down to almost the dollar so this will be interesting. This isn’t normal- I have stayed in hostels all over the U.K., and in France, Germany, and Australia. This has never happened. I understand closing a room or two at the time while it’s being cleaned but to have to leave the entire property?!
Sorry for that. I just had to vent for a moment. My walk up the hill was absolutely marvelous, even though it was quite cold today. I know I said it last night, but this valley is extremely beautiful!
It’s nice to be in the hostel again. Even though I’m still frustrated, I’m not upset like I was earlier. I shouldn’t write when I’m that upset. It’s like shopping while you’re hungry- there’s no telling what may happen.
