Day 4

A travel blog entry by offsider

... it was. Looked like the inside of any 1950's house. Liz and Phil have single beds in separate rooms. The only double bed is on the honeymoon suite and was put there by Charlie when he and Di married. Zara also had her ehoneymoon there. Toured Edinburgh Castle this morning OMG how amazing.

Not getting arrested

A travel blog entry by 35mph

Well that went well, in the sense that no one got arrested.

Of course Lothian & Border Constabulary will probably read this and we'll all be on the run for the rest of our lives. Like the A-Team.
