Day 2 started off with a bang... literally. Andy fell out of the top bunk of the bunk bed at about 5:00 am. This was after an episode of sleepwalking and grabbing some girl's leg in the middle of the night. No one ever said hostels were dull!
After a quick breakfast at a local cafe (Andy and Laura had bacon rolls...ew), we headed out on the first of our walking tours. Our guide was a read-headed Scot named Naomi, and she was great! We learned so much about Scottish ...

... well really haven’t had a chance to get out. Have been out with Lou and Roberta and last week with work. Oh well. Keep flirting at work and at the shop (yes Audrey and Peter!).

... glass of ice water at one of the pubs, rather than pay for a bottle of water. I ended up going back to Deacon Brodie’s Tavern, and after receiving a nice glass of refreshment, used the facilities.

I walked all the way back up to the castle entrance, and ate my banana, orange, and a granola bar from my backpack up at the Military Tattoo area, and planned my attack for the remainder of my stay in the city. I figured I would walk over to New Town and ...
