Edinburgh Daily Photo #99.5
Some people (like me) get a perverse pleasure from avoiding the use of travellators, escalators and lifts. In the odd and self inflicted one horse race you create for yourself you can occasionally win and thereby enjoy a brief moment of stupid superiority over fellow travellers. The venue? There are many but the airport that lies a simple tram journey from the Heart of Midlothian in Edinburgh is a good place to try this, some of the ideal locations for these indoor sports are:
a) Short stay car park, race top to bottom and beat the two squeaky lifts, it can be done going down, tough going upstairs though.
b) Travellator in the East Terminal (the one that goes past the stupid big wall photos and irritating quotes), almost impossible, no running allowed.
c) Exit escalator. This one is easy-peasy, great for beginners, only one go per flight so don't mess up.
You can do it at the airport and many other places, but not in John Lewis.
