Hey guys! I know it’s been awhile since Edinburgh Part 1, but better late than never! (Plus, My friend Zern would be disappointed if I gave up writing this half way!)
So, despite having a late quiet drinks during the night before, Zern, Anirudh and Ryan all got up bright and early to get the buffet breakfast in the morning! Note that I didn’t say I woke up with them, because, well, I didn’t. I woke up half an hour later because as usual, 9am is not my thing. I went back to sleep after breakfast as well, while they went swimming. Slept until checkout time! Well, to be fair, It’s the best use of the hotel room, TO HAVE A GOOD SLEEP. Plus, I felt that we had until 9pm for our train that same day, and needing to check out at 1pm. Thinking about walking around for at least 7 hours to kill time sounded really tiring. So I’d have to say, the sleep was worth it.
So after checking out and all, we walked down the street towards the museum which just so happened passes the all famous ELEPHANT HOUSE. Apparently this was where JK Rowling got her inspiration for her famous series “Harry Potter”! Sadly, we didn’t get to go inside to have a cuppa coffee, because we all just had breakfast. But if I were with Joy, we would DEFINITELY GO IN later in the day. So had to resort to just taking pictures of it. It serves quite pricey hot beverages such as uniquely tastes teas and coffee. So if you’re a coffee or tea fan, it’s a recommended venue to visit and have a cuppa.
We actually got attacted by the 7.99 pounds for a buffet Indian AND Thai lunch! It was totally worth it! You can see the quality of the food in Zern’s video below! So check it out! It was in the old town part of Edinburgh and up some stairs. It might not be the best place in town, but being students like us, and being on budget.. It was suffice for what we paid for! Ps. The ‘Thai’ part of the buffet is basically Thai curry. Yes, we were wondering how they would be able to have both Thai and Indian Buffet as one. So that’s problem solved.
National Museum of Scotland
This was the highlight of the day! We visited this museum because Zern has been here with her boyfriend and she thought it was a really lovely museum with interesting display and architectural design. The museum was separated into two main sections, history of the world and history of Scotland. It was both equally interesting! Sadly, we didn’t have the time to finish the museum and we missed some good sections! So if you are a museum and history buff, AND you’re in Edinburgh, it’s worth the visit for sure.
That’s the end of my blog about the places we visited in Edinburgh! Zern the Foodie has more insides of my trip so definitely check it out!
