I don’t know why that sounded so enthusiastic but I am excited to share this post because over the weekend I went to Edinburgh!
It was so amazing ❤ I loved it so much and just really didn’t want to go home…
If you follow me for a while you will know that this time last year, my sisters, Mammy and I went to London for a few days and this year we did Scotland. I’ve always wanted to go to Scotland, there’s just something about it that’s so appealing.
Unfortunately, I only got to experience the Harry Potter sites and shopping end of it because we only went for 2 days, but I so want to return asap to see more… the HIGHLANDS!!!!
The city was so beautiful. I loved the history behind it, the medieval feel to it all and the eeriness. I think I loved it so much because it sort of reminded me of home and the people were so lovely… and their accents were just
It’s like when American people love Irish accents 😂
I have a few pictures for you guys too! Bear in mind I am in no way great with taking pictures and I never really think about capturing a moment but I tried so hard to remember to take them this trip 😛
So there isn’t a lot 😛 The buildings were just so beautiful and the style of housing was so cute and I just fell in love to be honest ❤ The shopping was amazing especially Primark (we have Penney’s here but it’s not as good as Primark) and there was also a Christmas market and fair! I nearly forgot but the lights were being turned on the second night we were there too!
We mainly based this trip around seeing the few Harry Potter sites because my sisters and I love the movies and you know I have started the book series now 😛 It’s really amazing to go and see where JK Rowling actually got her ideas from. We went to Grassmarket / Diagon Alley, Tom Riddle’s grave and the poet William McGonnagal / Professor McGonnagal, the school with houses just like Hogwarts. We also passed The Elephant Cafe and a few other places filled with inspiration. Unfortunately the Hogwart’s Express only opens during summer season but that just gives me another reason to go back next year 😛
We were really close to everything as well. I really found that the sites were so close together and it wasn’t a nuisance having to travel around because we could just easily walk. We found this little burger place beside where we were staying, Belted Burgers, and it was that nice we went there the second night too 😂
I don’t really know what else to say other than I really enjoyed my weekend there, I loved it that much that I just want to live in Edinburgh 😛
Have you ever been to Edinburgh, what do you think?
Thanks so much for reading,
