    ... in Edinburgh (ed-inn-bruh). Our journey took us five hours getting us in at 2:30. We quickly departed the train and collected our luggage. We got up to street level by using elevators or just carrying our luggage up two flights. We carried ours. We crossed the street and entered the Carlton Hotel by the back door which was just 1/2 block away and on level -4. But again more steps and waiting for elevators to get us to ...

    ... and my seat was nice and close he the bag rack. Sat and watch for 1.30. Then had an 1 wait at peterbough. Got on this train at 8.20 and was sitting next to this black woman who chatted and complained. I listened to music and dosed. Then she left so I moved to the window which was actually my seat anyway and dosed until we got to the station.
    Then got off with all my stuff and had to cross across at up to get to the hostel. ...

    ... kept us occupied before making the short fifty minute flight to Edinburgh. After getting slightly lost on our walk from the bus stop to the hotel, (we had a dodgy map to blame!!) friendly locals pointed us in the right direction.
