... and had a wander round before a Scottish music presentation at the guest house at 10pm - that set the scene nicely for being in Edinburgh. I thought I was walking down the Royal Mile, but it turns out I wasn't - I could see this amazing row of buildings parallel to where I was walking and it just blew me away - as a first impression, it was really inspiring - I knew I was in a very different city and it heightened my anticipation of what I was to experience. As the sun ...

... all the strangers.  5. Soak in every single moment and write about it, because you will forget details.  This is the first time I've genuinely not wanted to come home from a trip.

When I arrived in Edinburgh, I checked into my hostel (which has views of the castle from the window) and the excitement began. I was so excited to see that this hostel was great. The beds are better, there is more space, the showers are nice, there is ...

Well I am back;

We have had quite the day yesterday. We started out with our performance to an absolutely packed house and 2 reviewers including Broadway Baby, so stay tuned for that. Our sound was finally good yesterday after 5 performances. lol The cast seemed very up and delivered a good performance. We had people from other shows come watch as well, which is a wonderful thing.

Right after the show we made our way to The Waverly ...
