The first time I went to Edinburgh was in autumn 2008 with some friends by bus (aka Rombongan Cik Kiah). The trip was organised by the International Student Association of Durham University. With just GBP10, off we went to Ediburgh. It took us around 4 hours to arrive. We departed from Durham Students’ Union (something like SUB in UTM) at 6am and arrived in Edinburgh at 10ish. We went back to Durham from Edinburgh at 6pm. So, technically we were in Edinburgh for around 8 hours. There is a mosque and Islamic Centre not far from the castle (well, technically we had to walk around 45-60 minutes from the train station).
How time flies! It has been more than 11 years since I killed this medieval female warrior at the Edinburgh castle i.e. its yard (err, not the actual killing though! If not, I won’t be in Malaysia to tell this story 😀 )
If I am not mistaken, we had to pay GBP10 for admission fee to get into Edinburgh castle (it’s worth it). It was in autumn. It was cold as it can be. The castle is on top of a hill (for safety reason).
