At 15:14 hours we crossed the border into England for the first time in over two weeks. Still, and crucially, on the the road trip part of our honeymoon, we spent the morning back in Edinburgh on the Mary King’s Close tour, a fascinating insight into life in 1500s and 1600s. Mostly, a historical insight ito the medieval Edinburgh, there were also spooky touches.

Emerging into th sun again we seek out some lunch – settling quietly for the St Giles Cafe (was once the Cafe Florentine) whereI had a very delicious bacon and brie waffle drizzled with maple syrop.

A pleasant walk back down through Grassmarket and we leave Edinburgh and out onto the motorway back towards Glasgow and down the M74 to Carlisle where Emma takes over the driving shortly before we cross the border…
