Good Bye Edinburgh, we were back to the Habitat, Nottingham

Finally,  we were returning to Nottingham back. Three days of fantastic trip to the Scotland must reach its final end. Yeah, if only we could stay longer, we would. However, as matter of fact, nothing is eternal in this temporary world. There is not everlasting happiness or sadness in this tempting world.  In here were the end of our fantastic adventure to Scotland. and Eventually,  at the end of the day in the future, I do believe it will be too nice memory to remember s. Thanks a bunch for the friendship. Dear friends, please promise me that you will never forget the time we spent together and hold tight this bond.

We were leaving from Edinburgh at 09.30 PM and be scheduled to arrive at Nottingham at 10.50 PM. We were sleeping in the bus a long the journey between Edinburgh and Birmingham. We were so tired, indeed.  We arrived at Birmingham coach station at around 07.00 am as scheduled. While waiting for the next trip to Nottingham, we took a bath in the bus station and looked for breakfast at Birmingham City Center. I and Arif tried to find Dixy Fried Chicken, but unfortunately it was still closed. Luckily, we found Chicken Kebab Tiki at halal food stall in the city. It was quite cheap, £3.25 per each, and we got one free because we bought four pieces.

The bus leaving for Nottingham at 08.30. Along the journey, we had the breakfast and long chats until the bus arrived at Nottingham coach station. Alhamdulillah, finally we arrived at our habitat, the city of Nottingham. We caught the Skylink bus from the bus station to our home. and that was the end of the adventure the Scotland. It would be one of unforgettable moments in Life.

In the evening (Tuesday, 28th May 2013), I went to the University Park campus for being exams Invigilator in Coat Building. The exam started at 04.30 and ended at 06.00 pm. After the exam, I went to the lab at Jubilee campus to warm out my brain with my PhD stuff after three consecutive days of break. I went home at 09.00 pm for the tight sleep.

Thank you very much for the day ya Allah. I love you as always.

  1. Salam kenal . DI Edinburgh menginapnya di mana cak ? ada website atau alamatnya ga? Minta tolong rekomendasi tempat makanan halalnya di mana? terima kasih.

    1. Salam kenal juga,
      maaf baru bales, habis travelling 😀
      saya nginap di Trevel Lodge mbak, cukup terjangkau. google map saja Travelodge edinburgh.
      Makanan halal ada banyak di dekat Edinburgh Central Mouse. Google Map saja mbak kode pos nya: EH8 9BT

      1. Terima kasih. Insya Allah saya ingin ke Edinburgh Okt ini. Tetapi masih cari informasi untuk kereta / bus dari London. Kalo liat dari tiket kereta, sepertinya lebih murah jika saya berangkat ke York dulu. Dan kembalinya dengan Megabus dari Edinburgh (malamnya di bus). Maklum ya backpacker. Jadi paket irit. Kalau cak ada saran, tolong kasih tau ya.

  2. Terima kasih Cak. Kemungkinan saya juga akan pakai bus yang berangkat malam dan sampai di sana pagi. Lebih bagus beli tiket online saja atau pas saya sampai di London ? Saya akan tinggal sekitar 2 atau 3 hari di London. Selanjutnya ke Glasgow lalu ke Edinburgh.

  3. Thanks a lot Cak. Maaf ya nanya terus. Maklum sekarang lagi siapkan itinerary dan mulai cari tiket bus dan kereta yg murah. Insya Allah mba akan mampir ke cambridge tapi one day trip aza. Kalo bisa pinginnya mampir di salah satu masjid di Cambridge. Malah kalo bisa pingin liat tempat kuliah di sana. Tetapi mba juga mau liat objek wisata yang menarik.(he..he….banyak maunya). Ada saran atau tips ga?

    1. di Cambridge bisa melihat gedung2 perkuliahanya mbak, disana terbagi dalam college2 yang bangunanya seperti gereja2 cathedral gaya romawi kuno. Yang paling menarik bisa naik perahu (punting namanya) menyusuri sungai yang mengelilingi kampus cambridge. Tidak ada masjid besar di cambridge, masjid terbesar berupa islamic center yang sebenarnya rumah2 yang dialihfungsikan jadi masjid. Saya pernah menulis tentang cambridge, bisa dilihat disini mbak: https://muklason.wordpress.com/2013/07/21/sepeda-ontel-di-cambridge-yang-tak-lekang-diterjang-arus-majunya-teknologi-transportasi/

      Cheer 🙂

      1. Jazakallah Cak….Mudah2an ga bosan ya dengan pertanyaan yg buanyak dari saya. He….he…. Saya baru booking virgin train untuk tujuan glasgow – london (fast ticket) dan sudah menerima email balasan. Di situ tertulis “You can collect your ticket(s) at the FastTicket machine at EDINBURGH WAVERLEY. Ticket(s) will be ready for collection 2 hours after booking”. Yang bikin saya agak sedikit kuatir apakah saya masih bisa ambil tiket saat saya tiba di Eindburgh tgl 22 Okt nanti. Soalnya di email hanya tertulis ticket will be ready for collection 2 hours after booking. Dan tidak disebutkan ticket will be ready until the day of your departure. Apa mungkin maksudnya tiket tersedia 2 jam setelah booking sampai hari pas saya mau berangkat ke London ya?
        Boleh minta saran nya cak khan? maklum biasanya beli ticket yg go show.

      1. Aamiin. Cak, maaf mau tanya. Kalau di sana saat mau shalat tetapi tidak menemukan masjid, shalatnya biasanya di mana?
        Apakah di sana kita bisa shalat di taman, jika kelihatannya tidak ada alternatif.
