Salisbury by Night

Leaving London by bus accompanied by Tan, we were soon to discover how slow buses can be compared to other means of transport. Being a Saturday, the motorway was crowded and sluggish, while a boat show in Southampton caused massive traffic snarls. We arrived in Salisbury about 2 hours late and then set about locating the nearby YHA hostel, which we had booked on hostelworld.com before leaving London. Book Hostels Online Now

Salisbury is not too hard to find your way around so thankfully we were able to find the hostel, which was conveniently located half way up the only hill in town. For £14.90 a night, we got a bunk in a dorm room with about 12 other people.

Meeting up with some fellow travellers, we ventured out into Salisbury for a few drinks and immediately noticed the slower pace, quieter nightlife and fewer people. We were joined by Liz, a Canadian hospitality worker on a 2 week flying trip around the UK. Liz keeps us entertained with detailed descriptions of the ins and outs of ice hockey, a sport that seems to national obsession. Our fellow companion Dawn, though quieter spoken, demolishes all our preconceptions about people from Utah.
