    We got back to the hotel a little while ago, but stopped in with some of the people from the tour to have a nightcap. They are such lovely people.

Edinburgh is also very ...

    ... during our separate hen and buck parties and got "married" today in the famous Blacksmith's shop. They had some Scotch there, so also had a small sip of the hair of the dog ;) It was actually kind of tasty so watch out Dad!

    Back in England, we made our way to Hadrian's Wall, a former Roman fortress. It was the farthest North that they made it, and set up this huge fortress right next to the Scottish border. The ruins were interesting to see ...
