... clean , but I always get the top bunk . Easy to get up but going down !

It was a smooth crossing thankfully , so no bikes moved in the night .

9.30am we docked in Ijumden Amsterdam . It was Sunday so not a lot of traffic . We were heading for Monschau about 300ks to ride . But traveling at 130k wouldn't take long !


We stopped in a small village for a coffee, surprise the proprietor of ...

... among the tallest in Scotland - a clear harbinger of an easy drinking dram. But, don't let its pedigree convince you that Glenkinchies malts are anything less than complex and characterful.

Among the multiple expressions we tasted, the 12yr stood out as the quintessential example of Glenkinchies citrusy, grassy, raison detre. Grain forward, this expression also ...

Edinburgh and train

... and another on harmonica. When they found out we would like to hear some Scottish folk music they played a few tunes, announcing that they were for us, and later played an Aussie one - The pub with no beer. The lady sang The Rose, her voice made it beautiful. Great night. I said goodbye to Susan and Judy, I did enjoy their company very much, I particularly warmed to Susan which does not happen to me ...

... of Scotland. The Museums in Edinburgh are much like the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Many of them are free to the public.
#17: National Museum of Scotland: The main gallery
#18: The Millennium Clock – This mechanical clock tower was built in 1999.
#19: The Princes Street Garden – This park is at the base of the volcanic rock on which Edinburgh Castle is built. We passed by it every day going to and from the Old City.

Checking out my heritage

A travel blog entry by nicoleanderson on May 12, 2013

... It was very delicious- we choose a little of everything type meal and really enjoyed it. When at an Italian restaurant, you of course have some Italian wine, and this is what started us off on a night out.
We made our way to a small local pub, and talked with the bartender about "hot totties" which we had been told were a traditional drink made with whisky. He made one up for us to try, as well as a couple of variations. Traditionally, they are whisky, hot water, ...

Best Basic Hotel for Solo Travelers

I would love to have rated this 5stars to help boost it rating on TA, but Im being honest. Easy Hotel is a good chain of hotels that put clean modern rooms in central safe locations for typically less than $50/night.

PROS
Location -
On Princes St New Town halfway between Waverley and Haymarket
10-15minute walk to Royal Mile or Calton Hill
Safe Area, Always people walking on main shopping thoroughfare and whenever the trams are finished it even be better.

Rooms -
Clean, modern
Quiet night sleep, you can control heat/ac unit too.



OVERALL -
It's not a bad hotel for the budget conscious, but if you want something on the Royal Mile with all the other tourists this might be out of the way. This is literally halfway between New Town,

Price -
Booking early is recommend for best deal, I paid 19GBP cheapest in Edinburgh that wasn't a hostel dormitory. Even if you add early check in, wifi, television it will still be cheapest.

Food -
Only has a vending machine and coffee machine, but has vouchers daily for discounted full Scottish breakfast at Ryan's a block over to the west end which was very good.

CONS
Staff -
Not the best at going out of their way, mainly only 1 person there 24hours for simple questions, check in/out, security. Not rude, just not the best.

Rooms -
They are small and probably best for solo travelers or a backpacking couple. Not for families or romantic couple getaways.

Small rooms with windows look out the back, Standard rooms have window overlooking Princes St front and Edinburgh Castle. This is key to remember, I was a bit bummed out. Then you walk out the front door and see it anyway.

Beds and pillows can be too flat and soft for most, I enjoyed my sleep through the night.
