City Bus Tour!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I went on a on bus tour of Musselburgh and Edinburgh with the international relations office of my school. While the address of my uni changes from Musselburgh and Edinburgh, I would say that we are closer to Musselburgh. Musselburgh is home to the oldest golf course in the world, a popular horse race track as well as one of Scotland's most prestigious private schools. For me it is a quant town with great walks and a beautiful scenery!

Next we headed into Edinburgh and the day was a blur from there! We spent a majority of the time on the bus, listening to our fantastic tour guide, Ian, explain various bits of Edinburgh's history to us. Did you know that Edinburgh has a system of underground tunnels that you can visit and are said to be haunted? OR that technically there is an Old and a New Edinburgh city? We learned some great facts and I got some cool shots!

Beautiful view from the seaside outside of Musselburgh 

 On our way to Edinburgh, we passed on one of the buildings that used to house part of QMU. QMU moved out of the city back in 2008 (or 2007) to have more space and be in more of an central location.
