E is for… Edinburgh

I’m feeling a little melancholy tonight. Not sure why. Although Edinburgh was only my home for six months, I miss it. I think I miss the hope that I had there, hope that absolutely anything could happen. Scotland is most definitely my ‘spiritual home’. Love it to pieces. But I’m a bit afraid to ever go back in case it’s not the same as I remember.

I got to walk with Vikings in a torchlight procession

Visit magical ruins


Discover the best library in the world (complete with secret passage ways!)


While away the hours in beautiful graveyards


Spend hours upon hours wandering through streets that look like this

Watch far too much Gossip Girl and having a headband club and practise giving my best ‘Serena’ impression.


I must try and remember not to romanticise it too much.

Ugh. If I didn't already want to go to Scotland I would for sure what to now! A library with secret passages?? Are you kidding me...I need to go there. When I visited Ireland I loved wandering around the graveyards that I stumbled upon. The views from some of the graveyards were unbelieveable! The viking procession is pretty freaking nifty. It's like something you'd see in a movie! Thanks for sharing :)

I only lived in Bath, England for 4 months, and yet I still get homesick for it :(. Clearly, you and I were meant to live on the British Isles. Also, I love your pictures-- where are those ruins?!

(I love that both of our most recent posts deal with escaping our current lives for a preferably European destination)

It's hard to miss "home"...even if it was a temporary one. :( I'm sorry!
