We woke again this morning at 6:30 and my first thought was to get out on the bike again. Good job I didn't because by 7:00 it was bucketing down and really it didn't stop the whole day. Our plan today was to drive to Edinburgh, about 230kms. We are having a family get together at my cousin Wendy's house on Sunday afternoon.

... presents. At 7 we hit up our first comedy gig on a recommendation from Kyle. It was a free show and he was really good. We all enjoyed ourselves. After this we headed to see Akmal. Akmal is an Australian comedian who has been on Thank God you’re here and the likes. I’ve always thought he was pretty funny. Somehow the three of us ended up front and centre to the show and there was only about 20 people there. We got used throughout the entirety of the show and ...
Well today the rain got us, no more skipping around the edges, but not such a drama as we had a long drive back to Edinburgh and not so much time off the bus so if it had to rain this was the day to do it.

How has this lodge rated in the past?
What could be a beautiful place is let down by a number of small things that are missing or never thought of. This apartment is very modern and a number of the fixtures are expensive but :-
- Shower drain was blocked, the trap had never been cleaned since new. We could have been flooded out.
- No soap dish in the shower
- Stacks of stuff missing from the kitchen.
- no elevator from underground car park,

I gather this place has been open for 12mnths but the building has never been finished.
Modern appointments - fridge, dishwasher, washer
LCD TV & DVD player - with 40+ channels
