    Our first day in Scotland has been a blast, yet utterly exhausting! We took off from Chicago last night around 6pm and It was about an 8 hour flight, so it would've been about 2am in MN when we landed in Edinburgh, Scotland.

At least I was comfy while we waiting, although the train did fill up a bit there, so it wasn't quite as quiet as it was to begin with. We did get a very nice snack box though, and it gave me a chance to admire the architecture of the station. (I love the old British railway halls, some of them are amazing!)

    ... in the summer when she comes and visits. It was beautiful, inside and out. We were not allowed to take pictures but I have a couple of the outside of the palace. It was interesting to see what it looks like and how it is still used today. It seemed very similar to the one we went to in England. After that we walked around and went into little stores. They have so much cashmere! It was everywhere, and same with scottie dogs. In the afternoon we did some attraction called ...
