Edinburgh is such a gorgeous city. The people we encountered were so personable and charming, no city mentality here. Thank goodness! It’s nice to get away from it sometimes.
We left for Edinburgh Friday morning and even though we were up by 5AM I couldn’t make myself sleep on the plane. I was super excited about my upcoming blogger meet up the next day. So we hit the streets as soon as we settled in at the hotel.
I visited Edinburgh ten years ago but couldn’t remember if I had visited some of the city’s landmarks. It felt like a new visit to me. Except for the castle. The castle and I are old friends; one I never forgot.
The first of several miles walked that day.
There’s no doubt that we got a great workout on this trip. There were hills and stairs everywhere. Up and down we went. We arrived home last night and I slept like a baby. I have Edinburgh to thank for that.
Our group ended our meet up at The Voodoo Rooms. With an awesome cover band playing in the background I really enjoyed my dinner and time there. A perfect ending to Saturday.
Sunday brought more touring about, specifically the National Museum of Scotland.
We returned home hungry and weary but so incredibly satisfied.
