          This place was okay. Not the best. Everything has a catch and was dated. Their lockers cost per hour. Their wifi was for one person per whole hostel at a time. This is ridiculous. and to add to this inconvenience it cost a pound an hour.

          Rafting Down the River Tay

          A travel blog entry by jessicachizen

          So I went white water rafting near Perthshire, Scotland, which is about 2 hours outside of Edinburgh. I have been rafting before in Costa Rica,and the American River at home, so I was pretty excited to be able to go rafting in Scotland (I mean, not many people get to say they've done that!)

          We bundled up in a million different layers - wet suit, wet suit jacket, life vest, helmet, gloves, wet ...

          ... Braveheart--apparently the part about painting themselves blue is true.

          The best part as far as I was concerned was visiting the castle. It sits high above the city and we got to wander around within it and look out over the city and thru the turret holes and pretend we were firing the cannons. There is even a pet cemetery up there where ...

          ... last saw each other so it was really nice that we could just pick up where we left off - and it has made me even more determined to stay in contact with friends which I have been very bad at doing...until now! Last but not least, Marc and I have been planning the wedding...yes, that sentence did include Marc's name - you're not imagining things! I think we have actually reached the stage where we can't do too much more on it until we come home! But at least by planning as much ...

          ... city of Edinburgh for dinner and then a midnight ghost tour through town. It sounded like it would be a lot of fun...and Scotland is supposed to be incredibly haunted from all the witch killings they did there. We has traditional Scottish food for dinner (I had sausage and potatoes), and hung out until our tour was supposed to start. We show up, and were a little thrown off by the guide whose name was Terri Crooger, and who was wearing full length leather outfit. I ...
