Well, yes, it is raining again this morning - albeit a little lighter than yesterday. So we head out and book ourselves a Hop On Hop Off tour. We have generally found these to be the best way to get the "lay of the land" when travelling in the US or in Europe, however our experience in Dublin left us feeling like we didn't get the same experience as we normally have ... and after getting stuck at a red light that simply would not change for ...

Sunday (12th) breakfast was mental at the bnb this morning! Everyone was in at once and the chief who we have become friends with we knew had been out on the beers last night! Haha he looked like he wanted to crawl up in a ball and hide from the madness. We walked into town to catch the bus to Lockerbie and then to wait an hour or so for the train to Edinburgh. Scottish are very helpful people, another lady had a good old chat with us and told us where to go in Lockerbie for lunch ...

We were both blown away; the place itself is simply decorated and not at all pretentious; it just is what it is, a bar that loves making and drinking awesome craft beer.

In the end we settled for a Jackhammer, which ...

... and the UK: (since we weren't trick or treating we figured it was necessary).... A fried Mars Bar!!! It actually wasn't as good as I was expecting or as disgusting as I was expecting. The meltiness of the mars bar inside was lovely but the fried batter wasn't that amazing.
