I asked Ayla some months ago whether she would prefer that I drive or we take the train from London to Edinburgh. She chose the train. Mind you, I rather like to drive, but honestly, I think she made a great call. The train was a much faster and much more comfortable* way to get there.
* comfort, that is, unless you like air conditioning. We bought first-class tickets, which apparently is A/C optional. When the sun came out in the afternoon, it got pretty sultry inside.
We'll be based in Edinburgh for the next few days, doing some day trips or just exploring the city as strikes our fancy.
