Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh.

Had I not read about the rain forecast, I would have already landed in Nottingham to watch the second test match between India and England. The cricket test that is scheduled to start in a few hours may not take off due to rain.

“That is England for you Mala”, emailed my sister, now a British resident. I had arranged to book a hotel in London for me and my husband through cheaper than hotels website. I know it is a huge database of hotels in England.

My plan was to stay in London for a day and then move on to Manchester where I wanted to meet an online friend of mine who is also into pro blogging like me. Again, finding an accommodation in Manchester was not a problem because, I can always depend on

She only suggested me to utilize the services where one can view all the hotels they have tie up with and choose the one that suits your budget. Though staying in budget hotels are not my style, I was advised to stay in one because I can use the saved money to stay for a couple of days more in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. I was invited for an overnight stay by my friend, I preferred to stay in a hotel in Edinburgh, as I like the hotel atmosphere more than staying as guest in someone else’s house.

I read some rave reviews about Arthur's Seat - the main peak of the group of hills which form most of Holyrood Park, a remarkably wild piece of highland landscape in the center of the of the city of Edinburgh, about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 251 m, provides excellent panoramic views of the city, is quite easy to climb, and is a popular walk.

Since I had to cancel my trip, may be I can re-plan it so that I will be in England at least for the third test match.
