The last stop we had was in Edinburgh. We arrived Sunday afternoon, and since I was tired and sore and didn’t feel like spending two hours in the restaurant, the three of us skipped dinner and went out to explore.
There was a lot of festivals going on, theatre, literature, street performance music and many more.
One particularly taking place just outside our hotel was called “Signspotting”….I liked that a lot;)


Here are some of the signs I liked the best;








We shopped and looked and bought some food in an Indian store and brought back to the hotel. Then we made soup and coffee and had the best meal in a long time…just relaxing and enjoying and talking and laughing.
We then made some cocoa and watched a movie “Narrow Margin” with Gene Hackman on tv….the only tv we watched on the trip;)

Monday we had the day to our selves, so we had breakfast and went shopping. The Disney Store was right next door to the hotel, so we went and bought gifts….I bought a Cinderella soft doll for Sarah and a 101 Dalmatians dress for Thea.
Mum bought a Mary Poppins soft doll for me;)

Then we went to the Royal mile………there is a lot of shops and pubs and stuff to look at.
Mum and I went to the ”Museum of childhood” and then I went to ”The Writers museum.”
After some more shopping I went back to the hotel for lunch and then I walked to Charlotte Square to the book festival. There were no arrangements when I was there but a lot of new books^^ I bought two children’s books before I went back to the hotel for a shower and dinner.
Later that night we all had tickets for the Tattoo…
That was just amazing..an experience you just have to witness….











We had a cup of cocoa when we got back and then bed.

The next morning was kind of weird because now it was all over.
We left Edinburgh, knowing that the trip was over, but still we had almost three days before we were home.
We had a stop at Hadrian’s wall


Part of the wall




No Scotland without sheeps, this is for le_mouton ^^


Then we drove to Birmingham for our hotel and down through the tunnel the next day.
Wednesday we got to our hotel in Germany at 10 in the evening, so we were both cranky and hungry when we got there.
Thursday we just drove all day and at 10.30 in the evening we were home…….

We had a great trip and a good laugh when people approached my Dad and told him, it was good of him travelling with his daughters;)
Then when he told them it was his wife and daughter, they just jumped to the conclusion I was the wife!!!!!!! I think I’ll shave my grey hair and go back to the blue wig^^

Signspotting var på Strøget tidligere på sommeren, grineren.

Sækkepiber synes at være meget populære på min f-list ;)

Jeg elsker sækkepiber, men det er meget specielt - du tiltrækker nok specielle venner^^

Ja, formentlig de samme. Kan i hvert fald huske den med dødsboerne.

Ja det kan være derfor, har selv et noget anstrengt forhold til sækkepiber, lidt a la Danny Bhoy's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeyjbqDCIeg
