Geography Lesson # 3

Now it was a hard process to pick todays geography lesson seeing as i'm going overseas next week and am fully pumped about the places im going, buttttt ive decided to choose a place I dont know that much about so we all learn something.

Geography Lesson # 3 : Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is the Capital of Scotland and is located to the south of the United Kingdom. It's not even the largest city in Scotland! With population of only 500,000.

Edinburgh Castle sits on top of a volcano, human habitation of the site is dated back as far as the 9th century BC. Edinburgh Castle has been involved in many historical conflicts but from the later 17th century, the castle became a military base, with a large garrison(a fortified military post where troops are stationed). Its importance as a historic monument was recognised from the 19th century, and various restoration programmes have been carried out since.

The Edinburgh Military Tatoo attracts on average, just over 217,000 people see the Tattoo live on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle each year. International military regiments and even African tribes have performed at the Tattoo over the years.

This manufactured attraction combines a gruesome tableaux of torture and degradation with live actors who perform scary little sketches along the way. There's also a 'horror labyrinth', a creepy mirror maze inhabited by the ghost of a little drummer boy. Mildly amusing in a large group, mildly embarrassing in a small one and genuinely terrifying for small children.

There is sooo much to see and do in Edinburgh i would be here forever if I was to name them all, looks like an amazing city to visit and its definatly going on my list of places to visit.

Time Flys...

Its been soooo long since my last entry, but im getting back on the horse. Sometimes life feels so busy that the thought of writing an entry is exhausting. Well New Years was nothing special and the first 2 months of 2010 were quite boring due to the fact ive been saving my pennies for our European adventure which will very well be the highlight of my life and happens to be next week =D I am extremely excited of course. But back to the every day stuff in my life, Drama King is still around and still driving me crazy but i still love him. I think I always will. But just a side note to that.....i dont know if its just because im controlling but every time he goes out with his friends (especially lately because we're meant to be saving) I get really annoyed and feel the need to make him feel guiltly for being out with his friends instead of being at home entertaining me. I try not to do it but i cant help the way my complicated girl brain works.

On to a new chapter...... ITS MY 21ST THIS YEAR woooohooo!! 2010 is home to my big birthday bash to come. Now i dont want my 21st to be just another night out on the town, i want it to be a night to remember. So many ideas run through my head and i still have quite a while to decide what i want to do. My first idea is a booze bus in medieval theme, second idea (and you'll need to know im in Australia to fully understand this idea) is to go down to the gold coast with my man and my friends and go to all the theme parks. Dreamworld, Movieworld and Wet and Wild. If your not sure what they are google it because its an awsummmmm holiday idea. Sooo much fun. Third and final idea is to go down to the whitsundays and book a hotel for the weekend. Hmmmm so many the end its going to come down to my funds and if i can get time off from work because inconvieniently my bday is on a Monday..grr so whatever ill be doing it will be the weekend before my actual birthday. But luckly the drinking age here is 18 hehe

Well seeing as I'm jetting off 5 days I probably wont write another entry until I get back, but stay tuned for my Europe Adventures.
