Lake District trip

I'm pretty lazy to write a decent entry on my Lake District trip. So here goes...(warning: lots of pictures in this entry...so if ur broadband is slow, please be patient to let it finish loading)

To go on a trip, we must get the right people.

So, first, let me introduce the group leader and driver of the trip...Melvin!

and also our cheeky photographer!

Stephanie the other photographer...

who tries to act professional

Tze Way and I are the not-so-important members in the trip but try to gain attention once in a while by doing some silly acts like this:

the rabbit and the dog

Last but not least...

Mei Shun! Melvin's gf

Armed with a Nikon D70 and Canon (dunno what model) SLR cameras, the photos were very well taken.

First day we were at Aira Falls:

there's constantly a rainbow at the waterfalls if the sunlight shines through...nice

and we were at Ulswater where I learned to make many ripples by using one stone only

and we had BBQ in an unknown carpark coz we were too hungry and the sky was turning dark!
we couldn't care much about slugs and burnt food coz we were too hungry!

Second day, we climbed Cat Bells

We climbed and climbed..

halfway through Steph scratched herself
not serious though

and we stopped and rest many times...

we thought we had finally reached the highest peak...

But then we realised...

there was still much distance to walk!
haiyo! Haha (I like this pic very much. I think it's very artistically taken. That's me, TW and Steph walking)

That night we stayed at a rather dodgy bunk house (as quoted from Steph and Mei Shun) but which I thought was quite ok as it has all the basic facilities. You can't expect much from a 8 pounds-per-night bunk house right?

the door was supposed to be opened using a code but when we stayed there, the door couldn't be locked at all. But it was pretty safe

14 beds in a room

The next day was pretty wasted as we stopped at Bowness for a while and walked around the town a bit.
there were many people around as it was the bank holiday

ah well...the day wasn't that wasted after all coz we fed some hungry ducks and swans

Overall the trip was quite relaxing and cheap. We spent a total of 57 pounds altogether for the 3 days 2 nights trip which included transport and accomodation.

I think the trip was good except that we could have gone to more places rather than just spending one whole afternoon at Cat Bells. But anyway, I still have lots of time in UK to explore these places.

I shall end this post with some photos:

I like this pic. Thanks to Melvin for taking this pic

I used sundews to write my name on my jumper
