Almost right after I handed in my thesis at the end of May, I made my way over to the lovely city of Edinburgh to meet my bloggy BFF cupitonians and it was awesome. Mostly because she was great but also because Edinburgh is a really great city.
Like many european cities that weren’t heavily destroyed during WWII, it is full of tiny alleyways and old buildings. It even has a real castle, man, I love castles. I didn’t go inside however, because I’m cheap and didn’t want to fork over a my money to even walk on the grounds.
On Sunday morning we did a lovely walking tour of the old city and it was kinda free. I mean, the guy expected a tip at the end but he also deserved it because he did a great job even though he was Australian. Seriously, I met more Australians there than real Scottish people. Completely bonkers especially since I love that Scottish accent so much.
We also sat in the Elephant Room where J.K. Rowling wrote big parts of Harry Potter. My nerd-heart could hardly take it. I even looked into the mirror of ERISED (it was in the bathroom but still!!).
This is difficult to recap in words so let me show you some pictures instead. (Ugh, I always feel weird sharing a lot of pictures since this is not a photo blog by any means.)
In conclusion, this trip was awesome and I really hope it won’t be too long until cupitonians and I meet again. Who knows, maybe one of my future travels will bring me to Bangalore?!
