Wandering around the streets of Edinburgh I was enchanted by the little 'closes' all along the Royal Mile.  Walking by these narrow passageways at first, went unnoticed between the shops, cafes, and pubs.  But soon I started to take notice of ...

A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month. I can't believe that we are already a quarter of the way through our trip. It has gone so fast and I feel like I somehow need to slow it down, but that's impossible of course. Four months seemed like ...

We were all up pretty early today, as we had booked in for a 10.30am bike ride in the city. The one thing we don't seem to ever account for is how difficult it seems to be to find public toilets – so after a bit of time looking we had a sprint to ...
