My girl Amanda is getting married in two weeks so in time honoured tradition we decided to hop a bus to Edinburgh and get gloriously smashed. While I’m not doing the whole vino vino happy times on my run up to my well…run, I am always up for a night of sailor girls, lady boys and limousines. With a pin-up sailor theme us Glasvegas girlies were heading to Edinburgh for the Ladyboys of Bangkok.
Edinburgh during the Fringe is one of my favourite things ever and there is loads I wish I could have seen. We went to a lunch time cabaret at the Voodoo Rooms (Celebrity Dance Off) before heading up the Meadows which was filled with people with bbqs and guitars and it was this generally really chilled atmosphere. Till we pulled up to the Ladyboys tent which was pretty much like one mega hen party. We danced, ate some amazing thai food and generally envied the bodies on the lady boys. Just…holy hell. Not going to lie though – THRILLED at the Phantom of the Opera segment.
Anyway plan was to rustle up some kind of sailorish outfit and spending as little money as possible. Objective achieved yes?
