Weekend trip to Edinburgh

After researching prices, we decided it wasn't worth flying up to Edinburgh from London, so we decided to take an overnight bus. It left Victoria Station at 11pm on Friday night and arrived at 6:30am Saturday morning. Nothing was open yet, but we managed to find a little restaurant which had just opened it's doors. We got a big, hot breakfast which kept us full for the whole day.When done eating, we walked further into town and explored, waiting for the hostels to open so we could reserve a room for the night and drop off our backpacks. We ended up getting "The Matrix" room at The Castle Rock Hostel.
It was a short visit, as our bus back to London left on Sunday morning at 10am. One day was not long enough, as I could have explored the city some more. This is what i said about Edinburgh in my travel journal: "This city is beautiful. It's a big city that offers all the good shops and attractions, but at the same time feels so small. I don't think you'd ever get lost here. The people are incredibly friendly and helpful and funny. And let's not even mention that great accent! The city has a vibrant and relaxed and laid-back atmosphere, even with all the people (mostly tourists) walking around. It's just a great city, and I have fallen in love with it."
Scotland was always the one place in the world that I wanted to see before I died. Now, I can die happy....just not yet, though, as I want to go back!
