Edinburgh adventure

It’s been a little quiet around here on the blog because last week I went on a little trip to Scottish lands, Edinburgh to be precise. It’s a wonderful city I tell you, near the North Sea, with amazing architecture, a beautiful castle and a small hill (251 m) called Arthur’s Seat from where you can get amazing views of the surroundings.

First, the people there seem nice and friendly and they sure know how to have fun, no matter what age. They are huge rugby fans and we just happened to be there while a big game was on between Italy and Scotland, so the whole time we were there, we heard only Italian and Scottish accents everywhere. Speaking of that, I could barely understand a word they were saying, it totally sounds like a different language, not English.

If you ever go there, you should definitely visit Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura, a very fun optical illusion museum, Calton Hill and Arthur’s Seat for great views of the city. The pubs were much nicer than in London. Almost all were opened until late (3 am) and many of them had live music with typical Scottish bands or rock acts. If you need recommendations for places to stay, eat or go out, let me know.

All in all it was a very good trip and I’ll let the photos speak now.
