070. UK

I always wondered if UK, England, and Great Britain are one and the same. Good ol wiki provided the answer. :)

UK - consists of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales
Great Britain - consists of England, Scotland, and Wales
England - largest country of UK

Uhmm, as usual, pointless na naman. Hahaha.

During my off-days, aside from pub crawling, I went to several castles -- Alnwick castle and Edinburgh castle are the most prominent. Alnwick is where they shot the Harry Potter films. Edinburgh is in Scotland and one of the oldest castles.

Here are some pics from my trip -

I wasn't able to explore some of the rooms in Alnwick coz the Duke and his family were there so some rooms were off limits and picture taking inside the castle is limited.

I had fun exploring the grounds though. I felt like a princess. Hinahanap ko nga ang tiara ko eh. Feelingera lang. Haha! :D
