Back from Edinburgh last Tuesday and didn't have time to write an entry on it
Saturday 23/12/06 - Tuesday 26/12/06
The trip was fun overall. The night scenery in Edinburgh was superb *thumbs up* with a castle overlooking the city.
We stayed in a rented apartment during the whole trip. I wish I live in an apartment like that in Leeds.
Since Edinburgh is a tourist city, there were no doubt many tourist attraction. One of the places which we went to was the childhood museum.
The museum exhibits many games played by children decades ago (even barbie doll is not OLD enough to get into the museum)
After that we took a walk down the city
Every alley in Edinburgh is so unique and beautiful.
So nice that even Julian decided to leave his mark in the alley...haha
Then we got stuck in a shop with a very keen shopkeeper trying to sell us his goods.
His talking skills were so good that Jean bought a kilt for herself.
Julian bought himself a sword too which Stephanie found to be of very good use.
On christmas day, we went to Loch Lomond which was located in the outskirts of Edinburgh.
The scenery there was simply breathtaking. It was peaceful and quiet. A perfect place to do my quiet time.
After that we headed home and had a superb dinner cook by Satish. It was really nice and I like the lamb dish a lot.
On the 26th, we went to Arther Seed, a hill overlooking the city of Edinburgh.
We decided to take a visit to the castle after that but realised that it was closed.
We left Edinburgh at night at about 8pm after taking dinner at 'Great Wall'. But before we left, we visited the doctors' pub.
4 days 3 nights in Edinburgh just passed so quickly. I wish Leeds was just like Edinburgh, such a nice place to study and live in. I truly miss every moment I was in Edinburgh.
