How Edinburgh can keep you from boredom

Edinburgh collage Jun 2016

Edinburgh. We always look forward to going on the train a ways to Edinburgh. This year we went for Steve’s birthday in lieu of the first birthday he spend with me 8 years ago.
After traveling to Newcastle, it was my first proper tourist trip in the UK as well. I remember being speechless (which isn’t a feat easily obtained for me) at it all. The age, the museums, the gardens, the red phone booths. It was amazing for a little country girl who’d only been to some American museums a few times in her life.
This time, for a change of pace, we stayed at The George Hotel which was in an excellent location – near Princes Street and Rose Street. We did the usual walking around, taking in the view, and wandering around the pubs thing. The new thing we did was visit the Edinburgh Zoo to see the panda. That was the coolest part of the trip without a doubt.
It was nice to be across from the Hard Rock Cafe, I can’t deny. Rarely do we get to just hang out late at night having a drink and walk back “home.” We nosed around Rose Street and did some mini pub crawls too. We even stopped off at The Guildford Arms on the way back from Carlton Hill.
Again, it’s a change out of the ordinary commute-work-commute routine. It all gets quite dull when everything is a-okay and same ol’ same ol’ every day.
Granted, this trip was at the beginning of the month, a few weeks before the EU Referendum came through, so even if Scotland decides to leave the U.K., we’ll still love to visit.
