    ... encouraging him!
    After an amazing day we climbed back into the car, thanked St Andrews and decided to take the scenic tourist road home. No sorry I have left a crucial part of this scene out. The boys had an ice cream and then climbed into the 'hire' car.

    ... next door to the movie theatre, we decided to go watch a movie, Woman in Gold (Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds). Considering how tired we were, it was a great movie! Super interesting. The movie theatre certainly was not the cineplexes we have at home though! We ended the night with some hugs and love yous... Couldn't imagine doing this with any two other ladies!

    ... days.

    And that was about it. We had an early early start the next day – like ridiculously early 8:00am flight - so nothing too heavy, just a final look around Edinburgh, our home for the last two years. Will be sad to leave but really excited for an extended trip travelling around Europe!

    Up bright and early the next morning we walked the empty streets with our enormous bags one last time. Goodbye beautiful Edinburgh.
