Day 4 and 5

On day 4 we went to Edinburgh.  I loved it.  A city with hardly any traffic. 

Here is OH after we got off the bus from the park and ride: -( free to park and £1.30 each to the town centre. Although it is cheap it takes ages so not ideal really).

I was thrilled to see a piper:

Just opposite is a shopping centre underground and under that is the food section where we just has a subway - collecting points of course.  I then bought a Trepass waterproof jacket with an fleece, for half price (down from £75.00 to £32.50).

We looked in Austin Reed and French Connection who were having a sale but I didn't buy anything.

We then went to the National Gallery which was free here is me just after: - is was a cheap day out!!

Whilst we were out one of the owner's turned up and spoke to OH's parents for hours.  He suggested we make a complaint so we did.  The holiday company were very good and straight away apologised as the area manager was supposed to ensure we were offered alternative accommodation,  we were offered £100 and we were happy with that.  Only one morning were we disturbed as the digger started before 8.  It also stopped us from using the summer house.  Other than that it just disturbed out view!

Day 5 we went to Berwick - it was okay but I was a little disappointed (yes I know we were back in England again).

Here is the view of the sea when we went for a walk:

The sea was nice but the town not so nice.  We did have a nice lunch at the Youth Hostel which has a cafe open to all.  We discovered it as we went to an art exhibition - free.  We later had a nice coffee stop.
