... to spare. I cozied into a seat on the bus and waited eagerly for the engine to start. The bus was nowhere near full but I kind of liked it; less likely to be stuck waiting for people at the stops. The tour guide was an older Scottish man with the distinct accent that I’ve come to love. He was full of stories and jokes that kept my interest and made me even more excited to see the places that we were going to. We were soon out of Edinburgh and in the countryside ...

... I out. When the boat stopped is funny little guy told us that he was part of a family that lived in the dungeons and that they killed people and ate them them.

As soon as our heads hit the pillow, our alarm was going off. We collected our belonging, checked out, and walked to the bus station. We arrived earlier than expected, and we were able to convince the bus driver to let us on the earlier bus. This time, the bus was pretty empty. KP and I both got our own row and settled in for the ...

Edinburgh: The first stop on my year of touring Europe. I have been here for almost 2 weeks and I still manage to get lost in the crowded streets! Edinburgh is a city like no other but when I told people I would be living in Edinburgh for a month most did not know where it was.
