One weekend in Scotland meant four days spent in Edinburgh with a friend. How do you choose the place you travel to? In our case, the location and the price made the rules.
At that point in my life, I was very open to travelling with friends and family. And that trip was as easygoing as I expected. Since it was the end of November 2016, there was a Christmas Market and you know I immediately loved it. Especially since I would have been in Iceland during the winter holidays. And back then, almost everything was closed on Christmas in Iceland.
The whole month of September, I will share 30 stories with you. One story each day. You will find out how I travelled, what countries I called home and how many times I repeated a travel in the same place. But most importantly, you will get to know my comfort zone stories. Would you share yours?
Edinburgh looked great in the autumn colours and morning light. And if you remember my travel stories, I always enjoy going somewhere up to see the city from above. It helps when there is a castle reigning over the city. But I did get scared on the Ferris wheel ride. Remember the Dubai story? And if you enjoy not only reading but also listening to travelling stories, follow Travelling Inside Out. It’s the podcast that explores the world within and out.
But all in all the whole trip was amazing: visiting Edinburgh Castle and Camera Obscura & World of Illusions museum, doing some shopping, enjoying the Christmas market and simply walking the streets. And the Spectacle of Light projected over the buildings on the main street. The food, however, we didn’t enjoy that much. Maybe we were just unlucky? I still remember the breakfast at the hostel with the food being rather cold, under or overcooked.
Do you travel to see Christmas markets? Do you go on trips in the winter or do you rather prefer a warm beach? What would be on your list of one weekend in Scotland? Let me know in the comments below.
