Edinburgh – Day 1

Our first day in Edinburgh – June 21 – we wandered. We went to Old Town, which was the part of Edinburgh I was excited about and walked the Royal Mile.

About halfway down the Royal Mile, it started raining, so I stopped taking photos. When it started pouring, we took advantage of St Giles’s Cathedral, and went inside. You could buy a pass for two pounds to take photos. I didn’t do it, but I thought it was an interesting concept.

After the rain had let up, we continued walking though and looked down at Edinburgh from the castle. We didn’t go in because none of us where interested and it was expensive. Next to Edinburgh Castle, we found a route down to New Town where most of the shops are. We walked down to Princes Street – the main shopping street – so we could buy new SIM cards for our phones, then we sat on benches next to a mini park and watched a couple girls cartwheel through a football – soccer – game. I wandered off to take photos.

We found a Walter Scott poem written on the sidewalk.

Then Mum needed her afternoon coffee, so we went to Patisserie Valerie. I got a mocha and an apple tart. The cream on top of the mocha was ridiculous.
