Och Aye The Noo and all that

Edinburgh Castle
Tomorrow, Christine and I are off to Edinburgh for four nights. It’ll be my first trip for a couple of years – I was there for a (unsuccessful) job interview in January 2009 – but Christine’s first time, apart from changing trains at Waverley station.
Whilst we both need a break (February has been especially hard for me at work), we’ve also got quite a bit of annual leave that we have to take before the end of the month and so are using the extra time off work to go somewhere a little further afield.
Growing up in York meant that Edinburgh was only 2 1/2 hours by train, so I had a number of day trips whilst growing up. Getting there from Sowerby Bridge and Bradford requires a bit more time and effort since you have to change at York, hence why I haven’t been much lately. It’s a shame as I really like Edinburgh.
Foursquare Thursday will happen as usual tomorrow, through the magic of scheduled posting, as it’s already been written. I have mental drafts for more Foursquare posts for the next few weeks too.
See you next week.

  1. I went to Edinburgh many many years ago and loved it. I’d go back in a heartbeat. Actually, we’re going to be visiting England in June to go see my family so if time permits, a trip to Edinburgh might be fun.
