On my Contiki tour we had a few hours to visit St. Andrews - the town, the school, the golf course. You've probably heard of St. Andrews from one of two places - it's the birth place of golf and it's where Prince William and his future Princess Kate meet and went to school. It's a great little town, even on a rainy day.
We visited St. Andrews in the morning. It's a coastal town and it's the type of town that you envision when you think of old English and Scottish towns - small, quaint, old architecture. There is a "Cathedral" there. I use the quotes because at one time there was a Cathedral there, today there are just ruins of a Cathedral, but it must have been magnificent in its day.
The golf course looks great too, and it's surrounded by lovely buildings, though they were still cleaning up after a tournament.
- I'm a 30 something who loves to travel. I have a full time job and enjoy writing (or blogging) about my travels. I've traveled through several countries in Europe as well as Russia and Egypt. I also enjoy domestic travel in the United States, including Disney. My long term travel goal is to do a round the world trip.
