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.

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 ...
