We went to Ullswaters, where I took the most picturesque scenery photos throughout the whole trip. After Ullswater, we went Hadrain's Wall. Unless you know what you are looking, the ruins probably look like any other walls around that area. I did a climb to a high spot where the views around the areas are the best. It is the coming down which worried me cos I do not want another fall during this trip. After the wall, we went to the borders of England and onward to Edinburgh.
A toilet break at the first and last store in Scotland, Jedburgh before reaching Edinburgh. We arrived at approx 3pm. After checking in at St Christophers inn, I went off for a bus tour. I thought it probably was a good idea to do a bus tour first, since I didnt do enough research on Edinburgh prior to my departure.
A bus tour to get a rough idea on what to do the next day, and I went back to the hostel.
The hostel in Edinburgh was the best! We dont have to have all 12 (girls) of us staying in a room, rather 4 people shared a room. The room was small, no lockers, BUT it has an en suite toilet. That gives us soo much convenience for the 2 nights in Edinburgh. I stayed with Kean, Bethany and Liza. Lying in my bed ans watching the city light up as the sun goes down near 9pm, I made up my mind to do Dynamic Earth the next day. Another Science centre trip for a secondary school kid, but I wanted to support the organisation in bringing up awareness of the state of envirnomental issues the earth is facing now. Then, I also made up my mind to climb Holyrood Park, though it wasnt May 1st then. But I just like to climb and get paranomic views of the city. So, having decided what I want to do the next day, I went to bed.
