With a quick night in Belfast, we got up, had breakfast, and headed right to the airport to head to Edinburgh, Scotland. A fast 35-minute flight and we were here. We caught a bus to a location close to the hotel and figured we would walk the rest. Hills and stairs….lots of them. Once we arrived, we checked in and headed out for lunch. Surprise, a pub!
We ended up buying a city pass for a few days just to help cover some ground quicker. There is so much to see here and it won’t all happen in this trip. Hop-on hop-off is perfect. We did a loop just to get our bearings and pick our top spots to go to. Hopefully we can get some better shots tomorrow instead of quick pics off a tour bus; the architecture is amazing. We jump out at our last stop and went to see where Greyfriars Bobby is buried. If you don’t know the story of this pup, look it up. It’s a little long for this blog.
We are keeping it a short night tonight to catch-up on some needed sleep. After hitting a local grocery store to pick up water for a few days and food for breakfasts and snacks (it’s a lot cheaper than trying to eat out all the time), we headed back to the hotel. A bit of TV & relaxing, then bed before a sure to be busy day tomorrow.
