Edinburgh with the kids was supposed to be my first adventure in hosteling. 17.50GBP per night. A 4 bunk private room, shared bath. Right off the Royal Mile.
Busted water pipes forced the hostel management to relocate us. You don’t mind, do you?
Not right off the Royal Mile… but right on the Royal Mile. Okay, 4 flights up a winding stone stair case. A 5-star apartment. Two bedrooms, lovely bath, washer/dryer, stove, dishwasher, fridge, WIFI. Same price.
Nope. Don’t mind one bit.
And ‘cos we’re with the hostel, we get a 6GBP full Scottish breakfast for 4GBP. What a deal!
We did Edinburgh Castle and Camera Obscura yesterday. Friend Al & her hubby drove over from Glasgow for drinks at an old haunt of theirs, the Halfway House in Fleshmarket Close. We had dinner at Ti Amo, a great Italian restaurant on North Bridge Street. The kids are having a fabulous time and so am I.
More sightseeing in store today, then I must say good-bye to Scotland. *sniff*
