{pt. 3}

{parts 1 & 2}

day two was for sleeping off jet lag, exploring a tiny bit of edinburgh and visiting family there. if you ever head off to scotland, you should know right now that edinburgh is a fantastic home base. the buses there are much cheaper and easier than in other cities, we found, and the train station is fantastic.


we walked along the firth to grandma and grandpa's house, and they showed us around their neck of the woods. they took us to the botanics and we literally got lost in the greenhouse for a really long time--but we made it back to their place in time for tea and pudding {which is not literal tea and pudding, which confused the daylights out of me when i sat down expecting tea and pudding and instead got a three course meal and cake}.

at this point, i decided i wasn't going to go home, ever.
