Hey Jas!

Head for Princes St. - the main shopping area. If you're looking for high street shops thats where to go. Personally, I think stick to the old town for lots of weird and interesting little shops.

Have a great time;)

Looking for a hostel to stay in for tonight now!

Holiday romances-haha! actually we went to a pub yesterday in edinburgh and i pulled some bloke-hmmm not bad looking! my mate went up to the bar and he was looking and he waved me over-but nothing happened, it was just the eye contact thing going on-oh well i have to have a story to tell!!

OMG what a story i have to tell you ppl!!! wow what a night last night-i was loving the hostel-i can't wait to go to oz now!!!! I am on such a high-it's amazing!

Lots of goss on the bloke front-if i'm feeling brave i may post some piccies on here-but i'm not sure on that one yet tho!-hehe-keep you in suspense!

Reece-you should have said-i could have grabbed you along the way!

Ended up going to Castle Rock hostel-bit dingy but ok once you got inside tho-oooh so many 'odd' ppl, didn't go to bed until 5.30am then ended up getting up at 7!

I only have tonight to go-think were going to pack and have a relaxing night, then its the flight back home-oooh and my tomorrow-oooh and i got paid friday-hehe-what a week!

Can't believe how quick 4 days has gone, i really wanted to stay in the hostel another night and sample more of the nightlife-oooh and flirt a bit more with the blokes in the hostel-it was a ratio of like 5 men to 1 woman!!! lol!

Gonna dash and will fill you in on the guy front asap!!

If it wasnt for me coming across this site, i wouldnt have booked my Oz ticket-and it's all thanks to you guys! ahhh
