If there is a place that I love more than anything now, it has to be Scotland.
It is truly beautiful, inside and out. There is so much history hidden behind the walls and curves of every road. It honestly feels as though you are in a movie or a book. There are so many nooks and crannies; from alley ways to hidden walkways that lead to unique shops and cafes.
You can see the beautiful Edinburgh castle, resting on the edge of a cliff. Looking as if it is about to tip over into the picturesque town. Brief glimpses of the castle pours through the spaces in between buildings.
When we had first gotten here, a smile was plastered to my face. I couldn’t help it, Scotland has a way of doing that to you.
So far we have gone on the infamous Harry Potter tour (which is free by the way), a night ghost tour, Edinburgh castle, New Town, and Old town.
You could sit in a cafe, reading, writing, and even people watching for hours at a time. The streets are filled with stores and covered with merchants in small tents. You also have the entertainers doing magic tricks, playing instruments, or simply just having a very cute dog with sunglasses on.
We are leaving tomorrow and we have sadly only been here for one full day but it was completely worth it.
I am in shell shock and wish endlessly to spend more time here.
P.S. here are some pics from the trip 💛 https://breathingwithcaity.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/img_2336.mov

What lovely photos! I believe your second picture is from Cockburn Street, where we lived for 6 years 🙂

I remember once, back in my Edinburgh days, I was crossing the North Bridge. I gazed at the city below and I thanked God for living in such a beautiful city.
So, yes, I do, even though I now live in Greece, so I’m surrounded by a different kind of beauty 🙂
