Currently, I’m sitting in an adorable little café across the street from my hostel, enjoying chai and a rocky-road-cookie-bar-treat, waiting for my friend to arrive on her train from London. Oh, and I’m in Edinburgh. !! This is by far the farthest trip I’ve taken from Bristol, and I’m so stoked about it! The train ride through the Lake District was stunning, and not too crowded so I got my own table. (Small victories.) Yesterday I arrived in Glasgow in time for a lovely dinner with an old friend at an old-theatre-turned-hipster-restaurant called ‘The Bookclub’. Had the most amazing pumpkin & pea risotto of my life. Spent a fun rest of the night at an Open Mic Night in a laid-back pub around the uni district before calling it a night. This morning my friend took me on a little tour of her neighborhood and city center before lunch at Hula… and then I was off to Edinburgh! Trekked from the station to a really cool little neighborhood where we’re staying at the Budget Backpacker’s hostel – which is kind of awesome. So far an amazing start to the Edinburgh leg of the trip! Much more to come as I’m here until Saturday – check back for pictures and perhaps a video as well!
