Edinburgh Travel Diary
In the words of Stephen Merchant “I genuinely believe that travel broadens the mind”. It’s so true it’s empowering seeing how others live and what life could have been like if you were born in a different town, country or even continent. As a child who has moved abroad and back I think it’s safe to say I know my way around an airport pretty well. So for me travelling isn’t scary or frightening purely something to enjoy for all it is.
The purpose of this post is to give you an insight into what my recent trip to Edinburgh was like. It was all very last minute but sometimes that’s the best way! I love Edinburgh and although this wasn’t my first time visiting it felt just as magical. It’s kind of strange that it’s like a city in the middle of nowhere but that adds to its character.
Anyway here is a little travel diary in blog form! I hope you enjoy 😊
Forth Road Bridge
A must from a blogger/photographers point of view is Forth Road Bridge. It’s just astounding! And also a perfect photo opportunity, it even has its own snapchat filter so if you did need anymore persuading that says it all, it’s very cool. For many locals the bridges are just an access route across to Fife but they are actually amazing! I really enjoyed going to see them. The rail bridge is the cooler of the two in my opinion. We went to a little town called South Queensferry to see them. I’ll talk more about the town later on 😉
Mary’s Milk Bar
Mary’s Milk Bar is another must when in Edinburgh. The best way to describe it is like an ice cream parlour with a little bit of a twist. It’s more of an independent brand and is very small, but very cute. The ice cream is delicious and they can make it into a milkshake which I highly recommended. A hot chocolate with ice cream is a strong choice. Overall it’s just a really cute little shop and has a real vintage feel and again is good Instagram material!
In all fairness the city centre is just as beautiful as anywhere in Edinburgh it was good fun just having a wander around! The architecture is outstanding and everything is so photogenic. Being as obsessed with English as I am it seemed like the perfect place to come to really throw myself into Jekyll and Hyde which is part of my Literature GCSE. We visited a cute little french cafe which served the best sandwiches and soup which had a Robert Louis Stevenson theme. I do really love Edinburgh and I would love to come back soon and maybe even come to university here also! The rest of this post will just be mainly pictures from my trip!
