Day at Lindisfarne

A travel blog entry by kathmom


... spot for a magazine publisher. The island as a whole is very natural-looking, and not too touristy...they have kept it as part of a wildlife refuge, too. We heard a bagpiper as we walked up the long drive from the parking lot, saw boats out of the water at low tide, and, like many other people like us, wandered the island for a few hours to get an idea of why a place that isn't very well known is really significant.

We made it back to Edinburgh ...

Edinburgh: History Abound

... in the unobstructed view of the dormant volcano from there. The memorial resembled a Roman monument, and was a series of massive stone columns atop a hill. The view was marvelous.

By dusk, we decided to return station and head back to Glasgow. Edinburgh was unforgettable, and ended up being my favourite city of the trip, with a few surprises:

... I made a mental note that from now on, if I see something traditional on the menu, I have to get it.

Back home, we had dinner, packed, and discovered that the washer/dryer combo wasn't quite what it seemed. It washed clothes just fine, but to dry clothes, it stopped every 10 minutes so if you wanted clothes that were actually dry, you would have to put them in again and again. Exhausted with trying to figure it out, Erin and Anne went up to Holyrood Park to star gaze while I wrote postcards.


This hostel, located in the Haymarket area of Edinburgh, is near Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Dean Gallery, St. Mary's Cathedral, and Institut Francais D'Ecosse.
