Today we woke up ready for a morning with a Blue-Badge tour guide in Edinburgh. He showed us around the city including a short stop at Holyrood house which is the Queen's official Edinburgh residence. After that, we went to Edinburgh Castle where we went through a historical exhibit of Scottish Royalty. We then saw the Scottish Royal Jewels, the Stone of Destiny and the small room where King James VI, son of Mary Queen of Scots, was born.
Lunch was an interesting experience where more than half of the group got brave and tried a true Scottish dish; Haggis.
Then there was some free time for shopping and exploring. Some of us made our way back up to the Royal mile to go to a Tartan factory, and then the rest of us stayed down and around Rose street for more souvenir shopping.
Soon after, we met at the Sir Walter Scott monument, and headed towards the train station for our four and a half hour train ride to London. I think we're all excited to be in London and even the little bit that we did get to see tonight seemed to get us all excited. We drove passed Madame Tussauds, Baker Street, and many other exciting places just on the way to our hotel and I think it's safe to say that we are all excited to see more of this famous city tomorrow.
