Edinburgh – 2nd January 2009
Not a lot happens, we spend a lot of the day sussing out where we can go next. We intended to go through northern scotland, but considering the coldness and the short days we cut that out. We book a few hostels and train tickets before heading back to the hostel.
We head out on a pub crawl that the hostel puts on for their guests, which was run by a fellow coastie. We get to the first bar which is the Ozbar and have a few coopers pale ales. Nice. Its then off to the Dropkick Murphys bar….yeah I was as shocked to see it as you are to read it. But I enjoy a guiness there. We go to a place called Frankensteins and have a 4 pound stein of beer. And then off to a nightclub that was fairly hidden – maybe a little sketchy.
Its not a bad night to be honest. With 2 quid drinks and some good company we get pretty fucking hammered. On the way back to the dorm room we kind of piss off the other two campers by being loud and boistorous – but thats what you get for being in a hostel.
