I'd forgotten just how stunningly beautiful Edinburgh is, I've been walking around in a touristy daze since arriving on Friday night.
It's strange to think I've missed British food, but I had my first fish and chips in over a year, not to mention my first ever steak and Guinness pie. Also breakfast, while in Greece it is traditionally a coffee and cigarette, the Brits win my vote, poached egg and smoked salmon is much, much tastier. Obviously accompanied by the coffee.
Speaking of which, yesterday was fuelled by seven espressos. That pretty much explains my repeated yet ever widening circles, as I walked around the city for over four hours. Thankfully I was wearing sneakers. The evening featured meeting up with the lovely green_blooded
for cocktails and gossip. Between the three of us, we tried ten different cocktails, my personal favourite was the Apple & Vanilla Martini, but I also ended up with possibly the Worst Cocktail EVAH! - a wincingly awful Caipirinha. The company more than made up for the lacking skill of the bar staff (albeit only on the one occasion), the evening zoomed by, escorting the lovely lady to Waverley station with only a minute to spare. The Boyfriend and I then went back to the apartment (which is incredibly posh, yet cheaper than a hotel) to crash.
Today has been spent doing more wandering, I expect the next few days will share a similar theme.
