So, we left London at 8am on a train (my first). The train trip was great. I enjoyed the countryside.
Once we got there, we were nearly blown away by the wind, We walked to our hotel to check in; the Holiday Inn express which had larger rooms than in London. We spent the rest of the day shopping along the Royal Mile. We ate lunch at the Whiski. I didn't order but did eat haggis. It wasn't good. I thought it would taste really bad, but it didn't.
We spent the second day visiting attractions. We walked from our hotel to Edinburgh Castle. It was amazing. I didn't get to spend as much time there as I wanted but I was happy to see such an ancient place. Then we walked to Holyrood Palace. Holyrood had an audio tour which I enjoyed. I wish I could have taken some pictures but they didn't allow it. We left at around 4:30 to go back to London. I wish we could have stayed another day and saw more of Edinburgh than just the Royal Mile.
