    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.

    I admit I expected less than nothing. Go to google maps and take a look it does not make an impression. But already at the fly-over I started to like Edi and that has only gotten worse by the minute. This city is so incredible. The people are all so nice, Edinburgh is beautiful and interesting and we never wanted to leave. I always wanted to go to …

We visited monuments, walked by the castle, St. Gillies cathedral, to the grass market (the old gallows), through greyfiars kirkyard and to many more interesting places tucked away over 2 and a half tours. He pointed out the window that J. K. Rowling sat at as she wrote the first Harry potter book and then showed us all the graves within greyfiars kirkyard that gave names to the characters, the most famous being Tom Riddle ...

    ... 8220;It’ll start raining before we get there.” Sure enough, the heavens opened up just as we approached the castle’s exterior. It didn’t take long for this tour to become another battle with the elements, as the rain pelted us from all directions and I came to accept the fact that my feet would never be dry so long as we remained in the city. And yet, despite this, the castle was beautiful, and the experience was fantastic. If there's a ...

    ... chemist things to buy some nail clippers. I asked the sales assistant where she kept her nail clippers, she asked if it was for me.
