My brother and I had wanted for ages to visit the UK, not having been since our childhood years. The exchange rate put us off (CAD to pounds) until we realized it would never get better and that we might as well seize the moment.
We flew from Toronto to Edinburgh via London on May 22 on an Air Canada Boeing 777. Never again will I fly that airline and route again. The economy configuration was 3-4-3, with seats expressly designed to make one feel like a sardine in a can. To make matters worse, there was a wide post of some kind dividing the floor between my feet and making it impossible for me to stretch my legs at all.
Let’s not even talk about Air Canada’s economy meals. I bought a couple of croissants at the airport before boarding and they tided me over.
Getting through Edinburgh airport was pretty quick and we easily found the tram into the city that deposited us a short walk from our charming New Town Airbnb flat. We settled in, went to Tesco for groceries, and made plans for the next day.
