Edinburgh, Scotland (1 Belgrave Place) 

Was up at 5:30 and ready to pack and clean the flat. It really feels good to leave a place clean and organized when I leave. Gives me a sense of accomplishment.

I was ready for the taxi to pick me up at 8:45 to drive me to the new flat. No way was I going to wheel my suitcase a mile. We arrived at the same time as the host’s assistant.

What a great place this is! Two bedrooms and two baths, great view of a nearby park and the Edinburgh Castle. The kitchen is fully equipped, thanks for the host who is a “foodie”. And two ovens! Plus, was able to reserve this place at a great price! I’ll be here until November 12th.

The wind was howling all afternoon and it took some time and effort to get the heat adjusted in the rooms to keep the place warm. Later I went grocery shopping at the same Waitrose that I went to when I lived in Edinburgh last year. I remembered where everything was. Walked away with two large bags of groceries. Then, packed them up the hill on the return trip. After putting the groceries away, I was ready for a nap!

Tonight, I joined some people from InterNations for dinner then we went to play pool afterwards. Great conversations during dinner and met new members too. A few more people from InterNations joined us there. I hadn’t played pool for at least 20 years. Did okay. Played 5 games and won one, with the help from my pool partner.

Was going to take a taxi home, but ended up walking instead. A good sign that I’m fully recovered. Walked nearly 14,000 steps today!

Tomorrow I’ll work on my memories some more and finish unpacking. Might even visit the gym too!
