Let me start out by giving a bit of context for this trip, since many people seem slightly confused about how in the world my Easter break trip ended up being three seemingly very random countries with very little common thread.
The entire weekend we've been in Edinburgh the weather has been stunning but today it was absolutely impeccable: making it a perfect day for some leisurely strolls around the city and relaxing in some of the numerous parks spread throughout. But before that, Mihaela and I enjoyed breakfast next to our hostel. I had a bacon, haggis, and onion sandwich and it was so so good.
Today I was in my element: lots of climbing up mountains (well, hills technically), getting incredible views from up high, and just enjoying the great outdoors. There are many reasons why I love traveling, one of the main ones being the magnificent natural beauty of the world and today we got to experience that combined with a beautiful city that I've fallen in love with in my short visit here.
Once we were all together, we made our way to Edinburgh Castle which gave us some beautiful views of the city. The castle itself was slightly subpar in my opinion – especially compared to Cardiff Castle in Wales – but I did like seeing the Crown Jewels (which of course you couldn’t snap photos of).
