Scotland Tour Day 1 - Edinburgh

After weeks of planning this trip I've finally arrived in Edinburgh. Took the Coach from Bournemouth to London Victoria, the Tube from Victoria Station to Kings Cross and from there the train to Edinburgh.

It wasn't my first time in Edinburgh. I've been there in 2005 and fell in love with it... so I couldn't wait to see it again, even if it was just for a day.

4:30pm - Edinburgh greeted me with rain but I didn't mind so much as long as I could walk and stretch my legs after 5 hours on the train. Getting to the hostel wasn't as straight forward as I thought as I had to pull my 30 kg suitcase up steep Market Street and North Bank Street. (a day later I've noticed that the wheels on my suitcase were stuck and didn't turn anymore... that's why it felt like pulling 100 kg up the hill).

By time I got to the hostel (Budget Backpackers) the rain had stopped and the sun came out. After checking in I had to go explore and take some photos straight away.

The streets were full of people, bearing in mind it was a Saturday on a Easter Weekend. Here are some street scenes and people shots taken in the Old Town.
