    We stayed there for four days and had a lot of fun with the other tourists. It is close to the city centre (walking distance) and the staff is really friendly and it's cheap and clean. The bathroom's are a bit small and I would not buy the breakfast because it's expensive for not much. Rather buy some stuff and prepare it in the kitchen.

    ... room, an ocean room, etc. I really loved this place because there was a ton of emphasis placed on the interconnectedness of human behavior and the impact it is having on our climate, environment, and animal brethren. There was a stone outside of the place with the words "the past is the key to the future." Inside, there was part of a quote that asked, in regards to humans, "in the end, will be be casualties or survivors?" Maybe I'm too pessimistic about the greed and ignorance ...

    I arrived in Edinburgh at about 6pm after a stop in Madrid. I caught a bus into the middle of town to meet up with the others, luckily there was wifi on the bus so I could chat to Louise and Sandy, who met up with me. There was a parade of people walking up Carlton Hill in Edinburgh carrying fire sticks, with fireworks and music. With the background ...

    ... live up to their word of today or power hungry ruthless killers of the past. You decide!

    After my two tours I found that I have a deep respect for the Scottish people. They are a country that has been fighting for their independence for hundreds of years (and as of September 18th, still is). Even if they had some bumps and failed attempts to be like the rest, I believe that is what makes them unique individuals today. I also realized that I absolutely love bagpipe music.

    Well, we are four days into our trip, and between the two of us, have taken 700 photos. Cole figures that he won't ever regret a photo taken, just the ones he doesn't take.

    We are writing this post on the train this evening, after a long but wonderful day traveling up to Scotland. We had quite an interesting start to our day. We were up at 5:30am this morning in order to catch our train to Edinburgh. On our first train ride in the UK, the ...
