EEEK- its a photo of me!!!
This was my couple of days I spent with my friend in Edinburgh. I am standing at the meeting point for the ghost walk just across from the city chambers.
We had a wonderful time- stayed in a Premier lodge in the Grass market area just round the corner from the Burke N Hare Lap Dancing Club! And what was so funny was once we got booked in we hadn;t a clue which way to go and wandered about changing direction for ten minutes or so then had to ask someone which direction to the Castle who said- er see that big building up there, that would be the castle! oops
We headed off in that direction and spent hours wandering up and down, having coffee, lunch etc then we made our way to Mary King's Close which is more or less a whole street that was built over the top off to keep the plague from spreading. It was a fantastic tour and the guide was so funny.
Later that night after freshening up and having a refreshment(or two) we made our way back to this location for our Ghost and Ghoulies walk.
this was another wonderful tour and very interesting and informative about Edinburgh history(must say it was the nasty side though) then we made our way down to the Vaults which are reputed to be highly haunted This is a piccy I took in the Vaults(which was so dark I had to do a lot of photo adjusting to make it visible). Whole communities used to live underground in these Vaults and were home to the Hellfire Club and all their dasterdly doings.
We then at the end of the two hour tour had a drink and more story telling- it was FAB FAB FAB and again the tour guide was funny and very informative.
Next day we spent eating, drinking coffee, bit of shopping then off to the Castle- spent about 6 hours in the Castle then when we could no longer walk another step we decided to come home- even my blisters have blisters and I feel about ninety years old
Photo of Edinburgh Castle- had to chop about five hundred heads out of the photo- it was very busy and alothough the weather was very cold and overcast it managed not to rain until we were heading home
This last photo is of the famous Mons Meg canon
I would highly recommend a trip to Edinburgh to anyone- there is sooo much to see and do
but do take more comfortable shoes with you than I did
hope everyone had a good Easter- I certainly did
