Day 1, Edinburgh to Keswick...

The lake in Keswick

Friday the 9th of November I flew from Svalbard to Oslo to meet Anna, who had been on vacation in Copenhagen for the last 8 days. We had to go to my parents place to sleep over, due to the lack of connections to Edinburgh. The next day we landed in Edinburgh after changing planes in Amsterdam. After picking up our car, a small one with automatic gear (making it easier to drive on the wrong side  the road) we were on our way to the Lake District in Northern England (245 km). Our aim for the day was the small town of Keswick in the middle of the district. From Carlisle we drove in darkness but at least we saw the changes in the landscape from Edinburg to Carlisle.
Our quaters for the night was a B&B in Victorian style with a very kozy couple running it. After settling in our room we went down on one of the local waterholes and had a great meal of lamb and ale...
