    ... before we went out for another drink. The next stop was a pub called Ensign Ewart, which had incredible live folk music. There were maybe 10 customers huddled around a 3 piece band that sounded straight out of a fairytale. We hung around there and listened to the tunes for awhile. I drank my first IPA that I didn't enjoy... I don't even remember the name of it. Then we walked down to the first pub Stephen ever went to (eight years ago) which was very nostalgic ...

    ... morning with Hazel and Ronald. It was so crisp that the frost was white as white and the roads quite iced - as close as we were getting to a white Christmas but exciting all the same! Hazel made an amazing chicken roast after visiting Calum and Nicky and their son Kyle. We skyped Kev's family and rang mine, who all got sunburnt Christmas Day at the beach. On Christmas eve we also saw the wider Grant family at Mary ...

    ... Potter novels. We then wandered around the Old town, did some shopping (Ashe did anyway) and walked through the new town. On the way we visited the grave of Greyfriars Bobby. Greyfriars is a dog that lived from 1855-1872 and who was very loyal to his owner. His owner sadly died and Greyfriars mourned greatly for him.

    ... laps during bus rides! Even better, without the swiss army knife, our bags could go as carry-on and there's no time wasted waiting for luggage after arrival at the airport. Customs and declaration officers don't even look at you and scammers aren't very interested either. Less in the bags means quicker packing up times and less to get lost. I cannot go on enough about how much we've enjoyed backpacking with small bags!
