    ... got tram tickets to Princes Street. When we got off at our stop, Elizabeth bid us farewell and we set off on foot across a park to get to the hostel. Sophie led us the long way- Uh, I mean, the scenic route. After asking a couple other backpackers for directions (you can identify them by their, well, GIANT BACKPACKS!) we made it to our hostel, Budget Backpackers.

    ... in full bloom, footpaths and gutters coated in pink petals. Made our way to Cramond where there has been a Kirk for 700 years. Tide was out and the mud flats ran for miles out into the Firth of Forth. We took a walk up the Almond river, along the walking trail to the falls.
