We reckoned its at least ten years since we had been to Edinburgh and if work allows we like a city break in December as we both work over Christmas so off we went.
We always went by boat before but I suffer severe sea sickness so it was a delight to fly at least for me as J nervous in a plane!!! Edinburgh lodge was a perfect place to stay.just between the zoo and Princess St with regular. Buses stopping at the door.however we walked for the exercise and the weather allowed it.
The staff were incredibly friendly but then everywhere we went the people were friendly.what we found though which was similar to our trip to Dublin was that it was hard to find a local as most folk were Eastn European or other nationality.
Was lovely to meet up with our nephew who is a chef in Aisle for the last two years. I didn't get to try it out but maybe next time as we plan to go back next year.the Christmas markets were excellent and that was comparing them to both Belfast and Paris.a few more than Belfast and a few less than Paris but the quality was excellent. We certainly enjoyed trying the foods and the beautiful marzipan chocolates from Hungary.
We did a lot of shopping as we rarely shop outside of our holidays and we had a number of coffee stops
