  • Absolutely fabulous day. Breakfast at ibis hotel, including haggis! Out by 8.30am walking around Princes Street, although nothing much was open till 9am.

Audio headsets were great, and thoroughly enjoyed it all. Thought of Mary often! Great views over the city, a couple ...

... keen to give us the run down on all things Edinburgh-ian, but all we really wanted to do was get to our room and rest!

Once again, we are on the top floor, up spiralling staircases dragging heaving suitcases. If we had to have a logo for our family trip the spiral staircase would probably be it!

After an hour or two of rest, we went to dinner about 1km down the road at an Indian restaurant. We (girls) were ...

Harlem you what !

A travel blog entry by chrisandgail on Oct 22, 2013

Although this might be great for tourism and for the image, which in turn attracts investment, you have to wonder to what expense. Harlem is an area with a rich history of working class struggle particularly from an Afro American and immigrant ...
