Anyone interested in meeting for a drink / cup of coffee / etc.?

by JessH

Hello all!
My fiancee is Scottish, but hasn't been back to his hometown of Edinburgh for over 12 years (!). We're really looking forward to this trip (for me it's the 1st ever visit to the UK)

We'll be there from Tuesday 5th until Monday 11th of August, and I was wondering whether any VT members in the area would like to meet for a chat?
(We'll be staying in the Grassmarket)


Greetings from hot & humid Dubai,
Jess ('c',)

You'd better post this in the "events and meetings section".

Ciao!

Re: Anyone interested in meeting for a drink / cup of coffee / etc.?

by JessH

I know I should, but it looks like there has NEVER been a VT meeting in Scotland before (can that be true?), so I don't think that any of the Scottish VT-regulars even look in the calendar....?

Whit`s this events thingy?
Will there be any Scottish people in Embra in August?
Ciao from a cool and cloudy Glasgow. (2-0, not bad):-)

Jess there was a joint Glasgow / Edinburgh meeting in September 2006. Ask Travellingspirit or Suet.

Re: Anyone interested in meeting for a drink / cup of coffee / etc.?

by JessH

Oh, ok.
But last September? Then it's time for another meet! :-)

September 2006 Jess. Slightly longer periods between VT meetings than in the UAE.
Shame it's not nearer to Wales. I would love to have gone to a meeting. Maybe one day, inshalla.
PS - Welcome to the UK Jess. I hope you enjoy our country. Just get ready to say "Ouch!" when you see how much things cost here. And you complain about Dubai? .... :))

There are some who live for years in Edinburgh and never meet a Scottish person...

Hi Dave :-)

mainly it's rent and house prices that are extortionate in Dubai (up to 4 times higher than Edinburgh!) but anyway it will be an expensive holiday for us because our currency has become virtually useless compared to the Pound Sterling and the Euro (ouch :-(

Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to finally visiting "the island" ;-)

In 1999 I was given the chance of buying a 2 bed apartment for around the £45,000 mark at one of the then new developments in Dubai. Oh, how I wish I had!

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

CASTLE ROCK: This is where...

by Sharrie

CASTLE ROCK: This is where Edinburgh began. Small settlement were reported to be built on the eastern side of the fortified rock. In fact, there were archaelogical evidence of human habitation as far back as the Bronze Age, about 1000 BC!

Edinburgh, said the writer...

by gabriellefox

Edinburgh, said the writer Robert Louis Stevenson, is what Paris ought to be.

Its magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty buildings of its medieval Old Town, as they tumble down the spine of the Royal Mile, to the grace of the Georgian New Town. Above it all, in its towering splendour, stands the Castle. Every step is a revelation - an alleyway which reveals an ancient courtyard, or a wynd which opens up a new panorama. And yet within this sweeping elegance is a compact city, a bustling city, above all a city which rewards every visitor.

Warm clothes!

by Travelchili

Make sure to take plenty of warm clothes when going to Edinburgh. Even if the sun is shining, the wind can be cool. And always take an umbrella or a raincoat with you, especially if you go out for a long day!

See the Old Castle Resting in Peace

by scottishvisitor

Rosslyn Castle was first built in 1304 and belonged to the St. Clair family. The castle bore witness to an accidental fire in 1447 when a lot of the building was damaged and non accidental attacks the major ones were in 1544 when English troops under the Earl of Hertford caused significant damage and the final blow when for the first time in 1688 cannons were used in an attack by Cromwell under General Monk. Today the lovely ruins stand steadfast in their beautiful surroundings with bird song and magnificent nature taking control of the castle yet again but with such peaceful prose.

Heaps of stores to choose from!

When in Edinburgh you will find that Princes St. is one of the busiest streets in the city. Not just because of the lovely Princes St. gardens and museums and monuments in the area, but because of all the shopping opportunities on Princes St. and its side streets as well.

Some of the stores in the area include:
H&M (Womens, Mens and kids fashion)
Accesorize (jewellery, hats and scarves)
Romanes & Patterson (kilts, tartan items, scarves, etc.)
Jenners (department store)
Superdrug (chemist, sells toiletries as well)
Virgin (music store Cds/DVDs)
HMV (music store CDs/DVDs)
Disney Store
O2 (phone store)
BHS (British Home Stores)
Debenhams (department store)
Evans (ladieswear)
Frasers (department store)
Laura Ashley (English fashions)
Monsoon (ladieswear)

There are a heap of stores to choose from along this street, definitely something for everyone. Plus you will find a lot of cafes, restaurants or fast food place (McDonalds, Pizza hut, etc.) on the streets coming off Princes St.
