    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.

    Woke up about 8:00 and packed and left the hostel about 9:00. We have a traditional Scotish breakfast with Haggis and Black pudding. The haggis was nice but the black pudding was less flavoursome to what I have had before. The rest was pretty average. Not work the 9 pound / AUD$18.

    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 ...

    Edinburgh Castle & Britannia Yacht

    ... 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 ...

    A travel blog entry by kim.donaldson

    ... 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 ...
