Twilight Tours of Neolithic village available until 31 August 2016

EDINBURGH, 2016-Jul-18 — Uncovered by a storm in 1850, Skara Brae is world famous for being the best-preserved Neolithic settlement in Western Europe.

Beltane Fire Festival – Edinburgh, Scotland

Beltane in Edinbugh Arriving for Beltane A deep Scottish brogue erupts from above, “Whit’s this – ah hear a Yank!!! ” As I’m likely the sole American present I stop and scan the crowd scaling this hill for its source. Seeing only unlikely candidates nearby, I continue climbing. Earlier that day I arrive by train and take time to wander through a town that two centuries ago was home to the author Robert Louis Stevenson. Just like his character Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, today’s Edinburgh is split into two parts. One half is the 18th...

London Tenement Blues

The London Tenement Rough Living London-Style I was living, if you could call it that, in various London hostels before I found a room for rent. I was eager for my own space, for drawers and a door. It had been weeks since I could unpack my bag. The room was in a house in the East End, a 45-minute commute to the city center. The neighborhood never made me feel unsafe, exactly, though I grew to recognize it as a bit rundown and “lower class.” The landlord company had only recently acquired the house. Even as they were soliciting...

Haunted York

Haunted York York Minster and Bootham Bar An Introduction to York, England It was 3:00 in the morning, and my husband and I lay awake in a bed and breakfast on the outskirts of York, rumored to be the most haunted city in the world. “Do you think this place has a ghost?” I asked. “No,” he answered. At that precise moment, the power light on the bottom of the in-room TV started flashing blue and red. “Did you do that?” he asked. I could tell he was totally freaked out. “No!” I hissed. And I really didn’t. Neither of us slept a wink. Haunted...

Friday Lunchtime at Petticoat Lane

  Finding Lunch in Petticoat Lane London     What to do on a Friday lunchtime? Well, while sitting in my office on the eastern edge of London’s financial district, I decided to meander around the Petticoat Lane Market. Although the market is open on Wentworth Street from Monday to Friday, it extends over many surrounding streets on a Sunday when over a thousand stalls are operating. Market trading in this part of London has been taking place since at least the early 17th century, which may make this one of the oldest surviving...
