Winter has us firmly in it’s grasp here in Australia so I’d like to take some time and go through some of the great experiences you can find in Edinburgh during the summertime. It’s currently high season in the UK and Europe and also a great time to visit so here are some of the unique experiences I found while living in Edinburgh.

So, here are some of my favorite things to do in Edinburgh during the summer months.
As promised in my last travelling post, in this post I’ll be exploring five experiences in Tokyo that might not all be in the travel brochures, but are certainly fantastic experiences. This week we will be going from haunted cat town theme parks, all the way to volcanic boiled black eggs. Next time you’re in Tokyo I would recommend each and every one of these experiences. I have also chosen these as they form a two day itinerary A perfect way to start your time in Japan before you branch out to ry other things, but also perfect if you are just looking for a stopover en-route to another destination, or you just want a few days in Tokyo after snowboarding in Hakuba.

Our first stop is a Cat Cafe….
Since about 2007, Japan has been one of the cheapest and unique places to ski and snowboard for Australians. Last year I took ten days out and strapped on some snowboard boots. The following was the result.
Fair warning, there are monkeys in the following post.
From the Medieval Spires of old Prague we moved on to the stately and classical Vienna. More Trams. Writing this after Prague, Vienna and Budapest I can say, I hate trams. Anyway…
Vienna was a little more measured then Berlin and Prague. With less to do and more random to explore, we were able to take it a little easier. Our accommodation was the Palace Hostel. A grand title, although a humble, clean, arrangement. Sadly it was a little further away then anticipated so it was around 45 minutes to get into the city. The upside being it was an environmentally friendly hostel, cheap and provided a breakfast including those awesome Nescafe automatic machines. Oh, and of course it enjoyed mountain views, being quite high, offering a panoramic view of the city.
