So we're home. Jetlag is hitting me pretty bad so will have to leave a longer post for later. However, I would like say that this was the best holiday ever!!! So many awesome sights to see, so many great friends to catch up with (and we even made a few new ones). Hats off to all the awesome hosts who put us up.

I can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow morning. Have no idea how I'll cope. Looking forward to sleeping in our own bed tonight though.

In Scotland

So we have travelled to the higher latitudes to the wonderful city of Edinburgh, and we are staying with our friends Tancred and Evelyn. Edinburgh has been the most laid-back and relaxing city we've been to so far. We've seen Edinburgh Castle, Mary King's Close, lots of Scottish Baronial architecture and had a walk round Holyrood Park (though we haven't managed to climb Arthur's Seat yet). And we have indulged in the local gourmet delight that is the deep-fried Mars bar: a unique culinary experience indeed!
