Hi All, Well yesterday was very quite - after a very crowed and uncomfortable night on a bus up here - I decided it was a day of rest. So I caught up on sleep (4 hour nap) .. lol and walked along the coast that the hostel is next to. It is going to take a little while for me to get up my next set of pics, they have a real class act at this hostel. Their are monitors and keyboards (several of them) but they are networked back to one server. So every station is like a dummy station - how it was before windows. Pretty slick - none one can screw this up. But on the flip side, it means no port to plug in my phone or cd rom. So it ... read more

After eight hour ride from London, we arrived in Edinburgh around 6:30 in the morning. As soon as we went out to the street of Edinburgh, we were approached by a weird old guy offering us place to stay. I would say go ahead and stayed over his place, but the Hardy boys were not so convinced. The guy, Mr. Gordon, cramped all three of us, and three other youngsters about our age into his little vehicle, and he drove to his home, supposed to be an unregistered hostel. A very good way to start our journey in Edinburgh. Other than Mr. Gordon approach, I was impressed with the city; almost every building we saw was made of stone, but so black and dirty. Mr. Gordon explained how the residue of decades of coal burning polluted ... read more

Geo: 55.9503, -3.18761Today was not an incredibly tiring day. We went to the Tourist Bureau after breakfast to get reservations for Edinburgh. After the secretary had gotten all information plus our deposit, she told us that there would be half hour wait before they could tell us if we had accommodations. We went over behind Shambles Street to the Mercado Al Aire Libre and bought four peaches and two bananas. On the return trip, we got a sponge roll. Chocolate. Ymmm...After we were informed about our reservations, we headed out of town. We only made two stops between York and Edinburgh. One was for petrol. The other was to visit Mrs. Murphy and eat lunch. It was foggy the entire way. Sometimes it got so misty that the only visibility we had was up two cars. ... read more
