I cannot express enough how much I love Scotland; it is such an underrated country for its sheer beauty and coloured history, Edinburgh in particular was a city I felt worth a second visit, considering the last time I had only been there for two to three days - hardly enough time to appreciate the city so completely.
Today we took a day trip with a guided group to Rochester, Kent where you will find England's tallest castle. I have not been to many castles, so I cannot really give a fair comparison, but I have to say this is the first I've been to that, when you see it you think to yourself, "they must have filmed a movie here... this beast is way too cool..." In the 13th century the castle was also temporarily taken into possession by the famously reviled King John.
The area is also known to be a favourite of Charles Dickens who wrote many of his famous books here, including Great Expectations. Enjoy!
