Edinburgh

in Adventure
I have always heard so many wonderful things about Edinburgh from my friends that have visited there – I had never been to Scotland and was beyond excited to see it for the first time.

After my almost 2 weeks in London, a group of us took the 5 hour train to Edinburgh for the Easter Long weekend. A stunning journey past vast open lands, LOTS of sheep, castles, churches and just generally gorgeous scenery.

From the moment we arrived in this beautiful city I was smitten! It looks like something out of a fairytale. I love history and old buildings and this place is made of exactly that – the old town is perfectly preserved and the new town compliments it in the best way. We strolled down The Royal Mile through the crowded streets up towards Edinburgh Castle, in spite of the freezing temperatures everyone walks around outside and the sound bagpipes fill the air. Next we thing we were in Princes street, another famous road with spectacular views. I looked like the biggest tourist ever as I couldn’t put my camera away for a second – just too much to photograph, too much beauty!

We were only there for a short time and I would love to go back and explore this city thoroughly. All the people were so friendly and the group that we traveled with such fun – it was an unforgettable little getaway. Anyone playing with the idea of visiting Edinburgh should really just do it, you won’t regret it.

You will see from the images below, I played around with layering them to create unique landscapes, I hope you like them.
