Hey Everyone, I hope your day been well.
This will be a fairly lengthy post sharing my short but sweet trip to Edinburgh, Scotland. So to start from the beginning my friend and I decided we’d take a little trip away just to have a break from the everyday normality. Edinburgh was a great destination because we were based in the city with lots of attractions to keep us busy for the 3 nights we were there. I’ve shared some of my favourite places we visited below.
Day 1 was all about getting familiar with the surroundings and figuring out were everything was. It was a short flight so I wasn’t really tired, more excited to explore the surroundings. We went to the Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.
Day 2 we went to the Edinburgh Castle which was such an amazing and historical building with so much to learn. We visited the Talbot Rice Gallery which was very interactive with lots to do and get involved in. There was also the Scottish National Gallery which housed a lot of art work, not really my thing but still interesting to see.
Day 3 was probably my favourite, we took a lovely long walk through Calton Hill, it was such a beautiful park and the views from the top were breathtaking. There were many historical figures throughout the park and many people taking pictures. I managed to get on the top of this stone building and get my picture. We also went to Chocolatarium Edinburgh which was a lot of fun and we had such an enthusiastic tour guide. We also went to a few of the Scottish gift stores, and I picked up some Scottish whisky salt, a fridge magnet (of course) and some shortbread.
Day 4 we had to check out at 12pm and catch the flight for 3.35 so you can imagine not much time to do too much but breakfast at Black Medicine Coffee and a short stroke down the road was just enough to get back, pack everything and leave out on time to get to the airport.
Waiting for the plane is what make me the most nervous, the arrival flight was pretty smooth and I barely noticed or felt a thing except for a mild block of my eardrums. Departing to go home was a bit delayed, but there is something so peaceful about being up so high in the clouds.
Overall it was a great trip, lots of things to do and see and very welcoming people. We stayed pretty close in the city and walked everywhere some days up to 18,000 steps. If I ever visit again I’ll probably explore more of the outer areas.
