Last Thursday we had an amazing adventure in the capital city of Scotland – Edinburgh. We left Newcastle early in the morning at the early time of 7:00am! We travelled on a train to Edinburgh it took 1 hour and 40 minutes. When we arrived we visited Edinburgh Castle. We made friends with some American tourists! At 1pm we watched the castle cannon get fired.
After our visit to the castle we walked down the Royal Mile and spent some time in the shops. We spent our money on some unusual things including a Loch Ness monster hat and some Edinburgh Rock! Later on we had a lovely Pizza Hut buffet – we ate loads of Pizza between us!
Finally it was time to head back to Newcastle on the train but there was a problem! A huge storm had caused a landslide on to the train track. We had no other way of getting home and we thought we might have to stay the night in Edinburgh (which would have been fun!). A kind police man sorted a coach out for us and we travelled back by road – it took nearly 3 hours because of the weather.
We had a great day! What an adventure!
