Great Scot, Part II

A travel blog entry by the.waitrix


I woke up fairly early for a Saturday. I took a stroll around my block before breakfast. I investigated some alleyway markets and then dropped in a little restaurant for a "Full Scottish Breakfast," which is remarkably similar to a full English Breakfast. Fortunately, that means it was pretty tasty. I finished breakfast and strolled over to a café …
