This morning Andrew cooked up a storm and we had a huge meal of bacon, eggs, sausages, beans, tomatoes and toast before Belinda and Andrew drove us to Liverpool Lime St. We spent most of the day on the train, changing at York to reach Edinburgh by about 4.30pm. The scenery was gorgeous; we through mountains and moors and along the tops of cliffs with the sea crashing underneath us. And I listened to my iPod heaps. It was very atmospheric. We are staying in the Old Town, thank goodness, as it is so unbelievably picturesque. We found our hostel quickly, and its our first time on this whole trip that we are sharing with strangers. However, the other people in our room have proved to be really nice. There is an Irish guy and an Australian girl who have both moved over here to look for work and Sean and I went for dinner with the Aussie girl. There is a great restaurant/bar in the hostel with some really decent meals. Then Sean and I went for a walk up the Royal Mile to the castle, looking in at a bar and watching tour guides with their tours. I am really quite tired, so I won't have a late night tonight, but we want to do a walking tour tomorrow and maybe the castle. Talk soon!
