We made it to Edinburgh!
We set out this morning and walked a good 20 minutes with our packs to the train station. Just for the record, I clearly over packed. My backpack weighs sooo much! We got our train ticket and we were off. Unfortunately, we got off at the wrong station. Joanne normally gives amazing directions but you she us to get off at Haymarket and it was suppose to be Waverley. We got off at Haymarket and I could not find where we were on the map at all. After 20 minutes of confusion, we walked back to the train station and asked the security man. He was nice enough to let us on the train without repaying. Thank god I've been to Edinurgh before and knew what direction to go after we got off the train. We are staying just south of the Royal Mile in Old Town. Last time I stayed I was north of Princes St. This location is much better, we are close to everything here. It took us forever to find the hotel though. We walked up a close to High st and it was suppose to be the next street up. Of course it wasn't but it was suppose to be there! Lol. After a long time, we found it. So we are chilling in our room now, eating nuts and chocolate. I think we are due for a nap then off to do some walking down the Royal Mile.
Did I mention Edinburgh is one of my favourite places in the world? Love it here!!! Lesley and Laurie, we must come back when we are down here in December!!!
Until later, Cheers!
