Last week in Edinburgh I walked my little socks off!! It may have been a holiday but I don’t want you guys thinking that i was slacking off.
We flew up to Edinburgh and stayed in the city centre so everywhere we went we walked or took public transport… this in its self lead to a lot of walking…that coupled with the fact that Edinburgh is a surprisingly hilly city meant that it was an altogether fairly active holiday 🙂
This was all the walking we did…
I almost forgot to mention that our flat was on the second floor (third if you are speaking American…) and there was no lift.
So all in all, it was a lovely active holiday which also involved seeing some interesting things.
Edinburgh zoo complete with penguins, lemurs and dinosaurs!
The National Museum of Scotland complete with awesome architecture and the most random selection of exhibits, with weapons next to sewing machines next to skeletons and candle sticks with randomly distributed steam engines!
The Scottish National Gallery which, while impressive, was not filled with the sort of art I like much. I can appreciate its quality, but old masters and such are not my thing. Still interesting though 🙂
And of course a whole plethora of coffee shops, whisky shops and woolen things shops!
If you are ever in the area, I can highly recommend it 😀
