Where I stayed
Hey guys!!!! So we are here at Andy's flat in Ednburgh, Scotland. He is taking such good care of us. We all went out to this bar called the The Last Drop that has something to do with the last dude that was hanged in Scotland, but I never really caught the whole story. Perhaps that was the shot of tequila we took at the Mexican restaurant before we left fault :) We chilled with Andy and some of his work colleagues and had a couple pints and had a lot of fun. Yesterday we had a nature day and Andy drove us all over the place. It was so pretty!!!! This morning I think we're just gonna see the city a bit, do a bit of shopping, and check out the Edinburgh castle which is supposed to be pretty sweet from what everyone tells us.
I miss all of you so much!!!! Sarah Mark needs to buy a plane ticket and come to Italy!!! You will not regret it and you will have so much fun
Thats it for now!!! Diane went running and I need to go let her in.
Hey everyone! We are in Edinburgh, the most beautiful city in Scotland (arguable). The buildings here are so gorgeous, old, and majestic. We arrived via train from Glasgow yesterday around sunset time, which was the best time to have come in to the downtown area. We then took the city bus to our first offical couchsurfer's flat. Andy is such a cool guy. He took us on a 10-hour tour of Scotland yesterday, through the Scottish Highlands. They were absolutely amazing. I'd always heard of the Scottish Highlands and it always seemed like such a magical place- and it truly is. We saw amazing landscapes, mountains, Scottish highland cows, waterfalls, rivers, streams, lake towns, etc. It got pretty rainy, cold, and the clouds rolled in as we were driving home, but that made it all the more real.
Today we are getting ready to go explore the city of Edinburgh. It is a beautiful, sunny day today and Andre is critiquing my typing/grammar skills at this very moment. Amanda went to the store to get us some breakfast food and D is in the shower just in from her run. We are heading to London tomorrow! Hello to my family, friends, and everyone at Ten Mercer!
