    Despite being very ill this was our second stay here and again they were fantastic rooms were clean an comfortable, Breakfast is basic and the fresh home made bread is so lovely. It is within walking distance of the High street but far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

    ... is a bridge over what was once lake. On one side are tall grey stone medieval sky scrapers of 'old town' and to the right the 'Georgian New town' (1700's) which of course is also old in our terms. We walked to the tall gothic looking Sir Walter Scott (novelist) monument which is quite spectacular and then back over the other side and up one of the many narrow lanes into old town to go to the castle at the top of the hill.

    Finally half term is here! We celebrated with the usual Friday night drinks at Alice House and BYO dinner at the cottage before going straight to Victoria to catch the overnight bus to Edinburgh. What were we thinking?! Cheapest option, that's what!! So after quite a few ciders we boarded our bus at 11pm for the 9 hour journey. There were 5 of us travelling together so it was an entertaining start to the trip, until Lara got told off by the ...

    ... headed off to the station. At the station i picked up my tickets for my other UK train trips. I then walked over
    to Carlton hill. I climbed the stairs, saw the monuments, tried to get to the look out, but they would not open for a few hours yet. I looked around the area, saw the views, then headed back down the hill. I stopped off at the nearby graveyard and had a look around. I then left here and headed back to the royal mile after stopping in a cafe for a coffee. I ...

    ... chill day it was great. We went shopping down Princes Street and got a few odds and ends that we needed. There were some great sales on so we didn’t spend a huge amount. For lunch we went and got nice salads, chicken, fresh bread and cheese from Marks & Spencers, then ate in the park taking in the view of all the glorious buildings and scenery. Afterwards, we just went back to the hostel for ciders and relaxed in the bar for a bit. We got ...

    ... challenging here I felt. It was sheer enjoyment done very well. What I got out of it was the use of motifs in the music and visual references that I am sure will play out in my own aesthetic down the road.

    Typically, I go to opera, ballet and pop concerts when I'm home. I rarely if ever see theatre or musical theatre. I see a purity to the themes in great operas, ballets and pop shows that I don't feel in theatre. Theatre ...
