I have returned to Newcastle after a quick trip to Scotland. My first stop was in Edinburgh where I visited my old friend Jamie, explored the city’s crazy alleyways (called closes) and admired the spectacular views!
During my time exploring Edinburgh, I visited a couple of museums, one art gallery, and numerous pubs. On Saturday night, Jamie and I went to a Christmas pantomime play based on A Series Of Unfortunate Events. The play was hilarious, and the BYOB policy was a pleasant surprise! I managed to merrily down some cider. Afterwards I nibbled on some shortbread and tasted my 50ml bottle of Tobermory 10 Year Old.
