    Yesterday after some downtime in the hostel, we showered, got dressed, and walked along Princes Street, which is considered part of the "new city" and is a modern, downtown area with shops and traffic. We checked out some local convenience stores and supermarkets to get a taste of local life, and then set our sights upon libations. We went to a bar recommended by some locals sitting outside, but were turned away because they had a large party coming in. ...

I relaxed here for a while before heading back to the city center.

    I wasn’t sure if I would have ...

    Arriving at the Book Festival is however very cheering. Charlotte Square has been transformed for the next two weeks into a tented book heaven, with four different theatres, some smaller performance spaces and a couple of cafes.

This being summer in Scotland, roofed duckboard walkways connect all ...

    ... The bishop came in the next morning called the police who called the king who then had them return the Stone back to England. True story
    Another fun fact the term "**** faced" comes from the town of Edinburgh. The town lacking sewage were only aloud to empty their chamber pots at 7 am or 10 pm. When emptying the pots they would shout "Water Coming" in Scottish. The pub lockouts were at 10 pm too. So it is said that at that time if you were drunk you would ...
