    The staff was very helpful, and very friendly. We felt at home here. We were given an assistance needed room, and the facilities were more than adequate for our needs.

    Chilly welcome to Edinburgh!

    A travel blog entry by jessielewcock on Jan 10, 2015

    ... a lot of very old buildings, gothic spires, and Edinburgh Castle smack bang on a funny shaped hilltop directly across from the centre of town. Honestly, the location of the castle is bizarre! We have had a quiet night tonight after such a long week and saw Into the Woods at the movies. We walked thorough a lot of flurries of snowfall getting to and from the shops and cinema but nothing has settled at all which is a shame. I'm looking forward to exploring a little more ...

    ... toast or such. Lucky I was wearing tartan pyjamas!! The first night I stumbled across the smallest wee pub in Scotland, and as I walked into the tiny candle lit hole in the wall there was a young lad singing and playing the guitar who literally could have been Paolo Nutini, it was perfect. I sat with a glass of red and felt very lucky. The city is stunning, the architecture on par with the beauty I saw in London and ...

    The plan was to go and explore my new capital city for the day. Bus or train? was the only question. In the end I plumped for the train as being quicker and allowing me to read en route (never been any good at reading in a road vehicle or some reason - it's the only time I get a bit travel sick). So I left home at the same time as Gray and we walked down to the bus station, where there was a bus for Leuchars (the train station that serves St Andrews) waiting to go.

    ... I am happy to say that I experienced the different lifestyle that London offers and that I have had the opportunity to come and visit.

    Arriving in Edinburgh:
    Wow! The perfect word to express how I am feeling about being in Edinburgh so far! I cannot believe that I have only been here for a couple of hours, and I already do not want to leave! Everything is so different than London - the people here are so nice and friendly. And ...

    ... back with my boarding pass to see if all is kosher and fine and dandy. Luckily it was and apparently our flight is going to fly this morning. Whew. Dodged one there.

    Nothing special about hanging out in Gatwick for a bit and then go get on the plane and away we go. The flight is only an hour but the flight attendants diligently served breakfast. We fly a lot. We fly British Airways a lot. This was the worst meal ...
