Back to the real world…0

After a 38 hour trip which included five separate flights and took us across four borders, we finally made it back to Edinburgh. Its good to be back, even if it is nearly 25 degrees colder here than what we had become used to. The very end of our trip saw us exploring the tiny Cuban town of Trinidad, which is very pretty, and has a great collection of pubs and cafes that host live music. However, even when it is played by great musicians, 12 days of constant salsa music is a but much…
We are now back in Edinburgh for approximately one week. This time will be spent drinking beer, trying to see everyone, finding all of our stuff and sorting through it to see what we need to take with us, biking and drinking. Then we head off to Ireland where Kate has a job (a real one!). And I need to start looking for one.
The question that people most frequently asked us when we told them that we were travelling around the Americas for 8 months was: “How do you manage to afford it?” But looking at the price of accomodation and the general cost of living in the UK, the real question is: “How can you afford NOT to?” The rent for a single room in Edinburgh will easily cover all the living costs (including eating out) for two in South America.
