So...lets not talk about the mini drama of finding out my fabulous jungle retreat at the end of the trip has been double booked...all I know is a) never ever book with Expedia b) staying calm and reasonable can be good c) having a hissy fit and letting my inner child loose also works! 'ITS NOT FAIR. I BOOKED FIRST...WHY SHOULD I MISS OUT...KICK THE OTHER BUGGERS OUT!..was the only thing that achieved results... sorry to the other ...
... border terrier and looking after him sealed the deal for getting our own once we return home. YAY. Not a border terrier but a dog. I know exactly what kind we're getting.
More fun nights out, karaoke and Alfie walks close out the rest of the month... nothing overly exciting - just living the life. Jemma was the first to kick off her 30th which was another big night and the the first time Jason really met all of the girls properly ...
... again a masterful display of architecture and stone carving. Having no pounds left on us I unfortunately wasn't able to make the trek up to the top of the monument to look out but that's okay. We'd get a great view of the city from the top of Calton Hill. On our way to Calton Hill, Kara needed to go to the bathroom and this is still a point of great contention for her as we went into a mall and you literally had to pay 20 pence to get into the bathroom! ...
... bus system I’ve also been undertaking a number of day trips out of the city. With the handy, dandy concession train pass, it is quire economical and easy to get to many places and back again the same day. It has been fun to just go down to the train station and read the board to see where the next trains are going and then just hopping on. Here are some of the highlights:
This is a lovely 15C little village, named as ...
... Conan Doyle, Walter Scott (author, poet, finder of the Scottish Crown Jewels and father of modern tourism), and the actor Sean Connery. We then continued on to queensferry and the forth river. From the 1100s through till about 60 years ago this was crossed via a ferry service. Then two bridges were built: a suspension road bridge and this awesome rail bridge. The town itself was gorgeous. Scotland as I said is exactly like I imagined, the cute little houses ...

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.
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.
Quiet night sleep, you can control heat/ac unit too.
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,
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.
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.
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.
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.
