27 hours in Edinburgh

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 17 Sep 2020 | By swathi | Views [381]

Day 1   The Avanti West Coast zoomed from Euston to Edinburgh Waverly, every tilt synonymous with a turn in my stomach. Sydney, my friend from UEA and I were going on our second trip; the first being Budapest in 2017. The 5.5 hour-long train ... Read more >

Edinburgh pt 2

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 23 Jun 2016 | By andywu217 | Views [310]

After a couple of nights of staying out, its finally time to cruise around on my own for a bit. I woke up this Sunday morning and spent some time grocery shopping for meals to cook around. I was able to walk up to arthur’s seat a bit but there ... Read more >

Edinburgh Pt 1

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 12 Jun 2016 | By andywu217 | Views [381] | Comments [1]

When leaving glenridding, it was a quiet morning, pretty much spent the day resting a lot! I was able to walk around the lake and eat with the peacefulness. I was able to try some English proper tea and a broccoli and cheddar cheese soup. The proper ... Read more >

A Highland Fling

UNITED KINGDOM | Wed, 3 Jun 2015 | By the_life_of_lady_laura | Views [458]

I’ll admit I wasn’t really in the mood for Scotland. To say the least, school here has stressed me out and by the time it came to the end of term, spending a week curled up in my doona was sounding pretty attractive. Despite my initial lack ... Read more >

Train Ride to Scotland

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 17 May 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [502]

AFter the ride to the beach, I boarded the train to Edinburgh.  The ride was approximately 3 1/2 to 4 hours, and I had to change trains along the way. The first train ride was only an hour  or so and the second was a good 2 2/3 to 3 hours. ... Read more >

A delight for the senses.

UNITED KINGDOM | Sat, 21 Mar 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [849]

Scotland has so thoroughly pampered my senses that writing about it soon after leaving, I feel like I should be relaxing with a cigarette and praying the neighbours were asleep. 'Touch' is probably the only sensation that hasn't been lured into loving ... Read more >

A day of wonder followed by disaster and dorm snoring.

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 17 Mar 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [892]

Some cities grow on you. London crept into my favour like its cold that crept into my bones. Some cities are just instantly spellbinding. Istanbul was breath-taking from the first moment I started heading in the wrong direction from the bus stop. Edinburgh ... Read more >

The double tonne.

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 15 Mar 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [818] | Comments [1]

Edinburgh was always meant to be a milestone. I thought it was going to be the site of my 40 th birthday party extravaganza but an inexplicable (Word of the week) desire to freeze the nuggets saw me here two months too early. So instead, this journal ... Read more >

Day 1 in Edinburgh

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 16 Jan 2012 | By frenchflower24 | Views [513]

So I spent my first full day in Scotland with Susan, her Mum Rena, and the gorgeous Olivia (Susan's Grand daughter - aged 1 1/2). We spent most of the day at home playing with Olivia, who was a bit shy at first but warmed up to me soon enough(although ... Read more >

Working my hamstrings

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 1 Sep 2011 | By travelcrazed | Views [320]

The steep hills and streets of Edinburgh must exist to balance out all the drinking they do. Down the bottom of the Royal Mile, near Holyrood House and the ghastly Parliament Building, is Arthur's Seat. From street view, it's nothing impressive. A trail ... Read more >

Mmm haggis!

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 30 Aug 2011 | By travelcrazed | Views [404]

I highly recommend the Sandeman's 3 hour walking tour of Edinburgh. Our guide Andy was a fast-talking, enthusiatic Scottish lad who seemed to know all the old and new interesting tid-bits of the city. The tour started up The Royal Mile of course but ... Read more >

Looking down on Durham and looking up at the Angel of the North

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 29 Aug 2011 | By travelcrazed | Views [371]

I've been couch surfing for two weeks and already I'm an ambassador! John and I stopped by his mother's place on our way to Durham. She disapproves of her son hosting travellers but had yet to meet one. While John tinkered with her broken tv, his mother ... Read more >

Time to Perform

USA | Tue, 9 Aug 2011 | By moore9503 | Views [280]

Today started as well as one could possible hoped.  The kids had their first performance this morning up at Pilrig Studio and the attendance was fantastic.  We had been warned that an early morning performance, on it's first day, may not do too well ... Read more >

An Afternoon in Edinburgh

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 7 Jun 2011 | By libby-k8 | Views [1666] | Comments [2]

Before flying out, I decided I needed to spend an afternoon checking out this cool city.  As it turned out, I should really have got up earlier and got an earlier bus (damn 2-hour journey).  Didn't have a lot of time, but I did get to: Listen to busking ... Read more >

Scotland Ho!

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 31 May 2011 | By libby-k8 | Views [906] | Comments [2]

Well, I survived the overnight bus-ride without too much hassle.  I think the biggest problem I had was deciding which flavour of chips would be best to get when we did a midnight stop!  Even managed to doze a bit, as I didn't have anyone next to me.... Read more >

Edinburgh & Hogmanay

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 3 Jan 2011 | By cokeeffe | Views [455]

I travelled north over New Years to Edinburgh to experience the famed Hogmanay festival. I spent New Years Eve exploring the old town and Edinburgh Castle, which is a beautiful old castle full of very interesting history. The view from the top is amazing, ... Read more >

Outdoor museums and indoor comedians

UNITED KINGDOM | Sat, 28 Aug 2010 | By drmitch | Views [519]

I had just over a week to kill before my next stint working and so decided to head north to Scotland while the weather was still relatively good (i.e. not snowing). Three days of rain in London before heading up did not bode well though.... Read more >

My Addiction to DSL in Scotland

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 6 Aug 2010 | By lauren_watson | Views [2041]

I’m afraid I have become addicted to a little something called DSL. And….I am afraid that there is no cure. DSL is something my tour guide of the highlands introduced me to, and it is called “Deep Scottish Love”. It can happen in many different ways ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 30 Jul 2010 | By ejpredny | Views [741]

The doomsday clock maliciously turned hours into seconds as my final days in Iceland wound to an end. I scampered about, wishing desperately that I could gather up the entire country into one big bear hug and refuse to let go! I had a big plan ... Read more >

S'long Not Goodbye ... OR If BSB can go on hiatus, so can I

Hey friends! After a whirlwind couple of weeks that consisted of: - a trip to London where Hannah, Sehr and I shopped, dreamed of becoming wealthy enough to live in Chelsea (prophetic?), climbed the lions in Trafalger Square, didn't write ... Read more >
