Posting all our photos and what we did is going to take a while, so I will be doing this in stages. Today I'll be posting about Edinburgh. When we flew in it was 8:30 a.m. Edinburgh time, 1:30 a.m. our time. We hadn't gotten much sleep the night before we left on our trip, let alone on the airplane. I felt like a zombie, but was too excited to care.
My last trip took me to Ireland, Paris, and southern England and Wales, so I had never been to Scotland and this was especially exciting for me. Eric had never been to Europe, so everything was new to him. He loved Edinburgh, with its stone architecture for miles. It is a very pretty city. And clean! We were impressed with how clean it was.
We learned that first night that service at restaurants in Great Britain is pretty slow. We wouldn't have minded much but I was really ready for bed. We finally asked for the bill and then made our way back to the Radisson. Eric wasn't ready to stay in so he went on a walk, but I chose sleep. I wanted to be ready to go the next morning!! It was a great first day, and we were excited for what lay ahead.
