Before today’s update, I had a question about why I’m in Edinburgh and why for 3 months. Good questions! I decided on Edinburgh because I heard that there’s a lot of history to discover, my brother might visit me here in November, and because the climate is nice and cool. I picked 3 months, because that will give me time to get into a routine, at least for a little bit, before traveling again. Next stop will be London, where I’ll spend the month of December to enjoy the holiday season.

Completed my first workout at the new gym, Bannatyne’s Health Club. Interesting building (see below) with several levels but has all of the features I need. Before starting my travels, I was working out 6 days a week – and have very much missed that routine.

It is about a 15 minute walk – so very easy to access. I’ll need some training on some of the equipment, but for the most part I was able to figure out what I needed today. The big one is that the weights are not in pounds – so I’ll get better at doing conversions. Bottom line is that I feel great after my workout today. Onward!
On the way home, as I was looking around at the buildings, saw this one plaque, and thought it interesting to share. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for more of these plaques.

And the building…
Looking forward to another workout tomorrow!
