Travel Blogs from Edinburgh

Quite a day!

A travel blog entry by jess416


... Stirling University.

After lunch, everyone was ready for a nap so we decided to meet back up again around 6 for dinner. We went into a pub but it seemed to be too crowded so we went somewhere else where we all ordered pints of Guinness and 2 platters of a medley of foods including onion rings, deep fried chicken, fried brie cheese, fried haggis balls, french fries, potato wedges and garlic bread.

4 sleeps

A travel blog entry by trewly

... bucket list, don't you? My Dad always says " Always travel first class"... Generally that means, in experience, rather than literal terms. But once, just once, I fancy seeing how it feels to turn left on the plane.. or to walk up the stairs! Business class would be wonderful enough I am sure. But first?
