House Hunting

So I see that many think my sausages and mash don't look appealing, but I assure you, they were delicious(and did I mention the size of that Yorkshire pudding [Kyle]...)...I don't know how to post pictures normally enjoy til I figure it out.
We have had a busy day....opened a bank account, met with our agency for teaching and went to view a house. Finding a house is proving to be a challenge...but whats life without a few good challenges!  That is so much easier to say after a few pints...
But really, we are staying postitive that we will find something soon.

The food here is soo great. We found an real Italian... deli and had a delicious sandwich for lunch. They were like "Doa Youa Wanta Fresha Crackeda Blacka Peppera?" Colin is shaking his head...I have no idea why..? :)

We were walking in a market square in the middle of a shopping centre earlier today and I said to Colin, "This looks like Epcot!" Which, if you haven't been, has replicas of villages all over the world. And it dawned on me....we were standing in a place that those replicas were based cool.

The first looooong day

So we are sitting here in our hostel on technically our first night here. We just woke up from a 3 hour sleep that we thought was all night but it was only 9 o'clock! So here we are now sipping guinness and adjusting to the new time zone.

We had a nice family send off dinner at Swiss Chalet before heading to the airport for our 10pm flight. It was 6.5 hours long but wasn't tooooo bad... There was some onflight excitment as a lady fainted and doctors and nurses flying on the plane were called to help. It was cramped and smelt funny but we made it!

We landed and made all our preplanned travel times that got us to Cambridge at 1pm. The underground was hectic, especially with our 10 bags and suitcases (Colin rolls his eyes.) We were over our weight allowance too but lets not dwell on the past...

We had a delicious first pub meal and spent some time looking online for accomodations. This town is busy but has a good feel and lots of interesting stores and people. Beautiful parks and lovely buildings.

Tis all for now
