I bet you didn't expect to hear from me this soon, surprise surprise, I am at Salisbury Youth Hostel and I have to type quickly because this is costing me £1 for 20 minutes, see how much I love you all, ha ha.
After an easy drive down with three short stops, I arrived at 3.13pm. It's 240 miles door to door. The hostel is beautiful, a large white building a bit like an old fashioned ranch with a verandah, set in it's own grounds, close to the town centre. A massive tree is at the front and it's surrounded by bushes, lawns and I've seen two pussy cats. I cooked my simple meal in the members kitchen, cous cous with a tin of mackeral fillets, got to keep the cost down.
My room mates are all nationalities, I have just had a lively conversation with two young girls from Canada who are backpacking over here for seven weeks, you should see the size of their rucksacks! I had to take a top bunk because all the lower ones were taken, hope I don't have to get up in the night for a pee, ha ha.
Salisbury Cathedral is magnificent, although a large part of the outside is covered with scaffolding, they are renovating it. I managed to sneak in for free, naughty naughty I know but I happened to be passing the automatic exit door just as someone was coming out.
Breakfast is included at this hostel so I am going to fill my belly up so that I last all day tomorrow. I have to go now, it's going to cut me off, by for now see you soon.
