Our destination was the Royal Overseas League Club on Princes Street in Edinburgh. My strategy has been to find the best budget accommodation available for short stays. If we are spending only 2-3 nights in a city, we will spend most of our daytime hours sightseeing. We require two beds, wifi and a clean bathroom ensuite. The ROSL is a Commonwealth Club that takes paying visitors for very little money. We are each paying about 35$ Canadian a night which includes a full breakfast. I had free-range scrambled eggs with Scottish salmon, fresh fruit, toast and coffee while Janet had a full grill breakfast.

The morning was spent exploring the Royal Mile leading to Holyrood House. So far, we have had no rain and today was so bright that I had to wear sunglasses. After another pub lunch, Janet climbed up to view the city from Salisbury Crag and I stopped at the National Archives but didn't want to pay the 15 pounds to go in. I will be visiting relatives later and I will enjoy hearing their tales.
