My Trademark Signs And Poses In Edinburgh

ALONG THE STREETS OF EDINBURGH after the visit to the Edinburgh Castle...Our walk lasted a couple of hours... but due to constant stopping, we did not feel so tired.... We had our lunch at The Orchid, a Thai restaurant somewhere along the way with a couple of friends who met us up.  As the Saying goes... no sex please, we are British... And My saying... No western food please, I am Chinese!  Lol...

Military Performance At Fringe Festival, Edinburgh Castle

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city. It is all about celebration of arts and entertainment!   It was to my sheer delight that we came at the right time for the festval started on the 5th August till the 29th....
When Aaron suggested going to Edinburgh for a day trip, I was thinking it would be kind of tiring to drive the five hours journey to and fro.  It would be better if we could stay a night but after numerous ckecking for lodging, we could not get anywhere near around town and even those which were located a bit further from town was quite costly to us.  Leaving no choice, we spent almost the whole day there, only leaving around 8pm after our dinner..... The obe having the most fun is none other than my girl... Everything looks wonderful to her.... For me, bonding with them are my happiest moments! At the top of the Edinburgh Castle....
With the comedian...

SATURDAY IS FINALLY HERE!!
The trio set off early for a rrip to Edinburgh which is less than three hours drive from our place.   It will be only a day trip for us for we were not able to book a suitable accommodation in Edinburgh.  The festival of the year is on.... Yes, it is called Fringe Festival... I did not know what that is until we reached there.  This is my third time visiting Edinburgh but it is my first time experiencing the excitement and happening in this city.....
On the way, we stopped at Dundee to take a short rest at the Tay Bridge.  Weather was simply beautiful. Sunny skies all the way.... Soon we reached Edinburgh and our little girl was most excited...
I think We lost a lot of calories here in Edinburgh.  After parking our car near the castle, it was all about climbing stairs to the Edinburgh castle and walking endlessly along the strrets to join in the crowd.  We were there for more than four hours and our parking fees alone came up to £17.50!  Okay, don't con…
