At certain times of the year, it’s cheaper to go abroad than it is to get the train to Edinburgh… and quicker too… Five. Hour. Train. Journey.
But I can’t not go home in August. August in Edinburgh means 2 things… a very slim hope of a sliver of sunshine and the Edinburgh Festival! I ordered my festival catalogue as soon as it became available back in July and have been giving myself goggle eyes by trying to read every review written since this year’s festival kicked off 2 weeks ago to try and ensure that I don’t end up seeing any duds. Phew, it’s actually quite hard work trying to plan an action packed 4 day trip which includes shows, friends, art, bars, family, music, food and night buses.
Still, that should give me time to fit in a few of my favourites:
How can I smuggle out this Missoni chair?
The Forth Floor Bar
It’s a shame that Jacq’s poster isn’t still on Multrees Walk… I quite liked being the sister of one of the faces of Edinburgh…
Eurgh… rain. Definitely not one of my favourites, but it’s pretty much guaranteed in Scotland. Probably the reason I spend so much of my time at home in bars…?
