The Fringe doesn’t really get going until the afternoon and so we were left with a morning to fill. We fancied being outside so we decided to go to Carlton Hill.
When we have been in previous years it has been a lovely place for some quiet contemplation and great views over the city.… Read the rest
Having come to Edinburgh three years ago for the fringe festival and loved the experience we knew we would be back. So we were excited to be returning again this year. That said it turns out that things seem much less exciting at 5am in the morning when you’re woken by the alarm!… Read the rest
Warning – if you have a phobia of balloons then this post is not for you. It contains a lot of them!
I have a “bucket list” of places I wish to visit and experiences that I would like to, well, experience.… Read the rest

Those that know us will know that we aren’t known for our spontinaity and have our lives planned in meticulious detail months, even years, in advance. So when I discovered a couple of weeks ago that we were free this weekend and suggested that we go away for the weekend it came as a surprise to both of us!… Read the rest
Last Friday we once again set off for Regent’s Park and the ZSL London Zoo for their annual Zoo Nights event (neé Sunset Safari, which I think is a much superior name). This is becoming a regular event for us having been both in 2015 and 2016.… Read the rest

We were going up for a cinema trip, more of which later, and had the whole day to kill before it.… Read the rest
