We're in Edinburgh!
I never expected it to be so pretty, and we were also lucky that the day we went hiking up the hills was the sunniest day of the week so the pictures came out perfect 😍
More sun please!
So pretty this Parthenon-inspired structure up on calton hill
Eventhough it was sunny, it was still super windy especially up the hills so my hair is like this half the time lol
Ah the view ❤️❤️❤️
Really worth the relatively easy hike to see the whole of Edinburgh, just remember to wear more layers cos the wind can be brutal!
Our Airbnb is so so so amazing too cos it's so well stocked that we cooked everyday since food here is just meh, and I even took a nice hot bath cos she provided bath salts too 😱 this sets the bar super high for my next Airbnbs!
Also, all the Scots we've met here are amazingly friendly and helpful, and hearing them talk with the sing-songy Scottish accent just make my day haha
Delicious hog roast sandwich in Oink!
Edinburgh in its natural state, all gloomy and grey haha
But the cobbled streets are beautiful!
Went on the free walking tour and it was really good! One of the best I've been to. Btw he told us that these olden steps are special because back then, people would choose a random step outside their houses to be made into a "trip step" (see the 2nd and 3rd one).
The reason why is when it was dark, if you were in haste (usually after escaping from stealing something), then you would trip down the steps. This is why for the modern alarms, they use the term "tripping the alarm system".
The Edinburgh castle where they apparently filmed the red wedding in game of thrones!
Check out how fertile this land is! That's because we're standing on top of 98,000 bodies wtf. It's the Greyfriars graveyard where JK Rowling took some inspiration from for Harry Potter.
A few cafes claimed this so who knows haha
The school which was the inspiration for Hogwarts
Lord Voldemort's grave...
Check out the man who was known amongst other famous poets, historians and headmasters as the man with feelings wtf
Deep fried Mars bar, which was disappointing to be honest. It's just a lump of melted chocolate.
