So much plaid!

A travel blog entry by ldschaub


... our museum just in the nick of time. We moved on down to old town which was a section of Edinburgh with very colorful buildings and shops. We went through a couple of them to see what they had. This area was focused more on artsy and not nearly as touristy. But old town was a short area and we found ourselves headed back to the Royal Mile.
After some more walking, we decided to head to Arthur's Seat, which was the top of an extinct volcano ...

As I mentioned earlier, it will be interesting to see the outcome of the voting later this coming year ...

I'm not sure if it's because it didn't really take us to any places that I hadn't seen before or if it was just the one we chose but I was expecting it to go up further into the old town - which it didn't. Anyway some of the nifty facts were pretty interesting and it's crazy to know a lot of the 'new' town is still a lot older than most (if not all) things in ...
