On Edinburgh

I haven’t posted anything for a while but this time I actually have a good excuse. I’ve been traveling through Ireland and the United Kingdom. I enjoyed my holiday, as they say over there, but it’s good to be home as well.

DSC_0484I thought I would write a bit about some of the sights and so today’s post will focus on the city of Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a charming city and I didn’t get to spend nearly enough time there. It has wonderful, narrow streets that wind through the old part of town and a marvelous view from Edinburgh castle. The castle itself is full of history and a great place to spend a few hours.

Edinburgh has a long association with famous authors. Robert Louis Stevenson, Walter Scott, and Robert Burns among them. More recently J.K. Rowling penned “Harry Potter” in one of the local coffee shops. A few of you may have read it.

The Haggis pie was awesome. Yes, I know what haggis is made from but it was still awesome. Overall, Edinburgh was probably my favorite city of all those I visited on my trip. Do yourself a favor and check it out sometime.
