Last week I went on a family trip to Edinburgh. We spent 4 days there and it was the furthest north I’d ever been and my first time in Scotland. It is a beautiful city! I didn’t really know what to expect but the architecture is beautiful and the city had a really good feel. It was also pretty great for Pokemon if you are a fellow addict of Pokemon Go 😉
Accommodation-wise we stayed in Novotel Edinburgh Centre which was very nice; a good breakfast buffet too. We went to The Edinburgh Dungeon attraction which was good I suppose… But not really my cup of tea tbh, it was quite scary and made me uncomfortable at possibly being picked on to get involved. Great acting from the employees there though and luckily I didn’t get picked on! We also visited the Castle which is obviously beautiful but I found the outside more interesting than the inside xD Getting some great shots of it from afar would have been enough for me!
Edinburgh Zoo was a really nice zoo with lots of lovely animals! I was excited at seeing the koalas and pandas as it’s the only place in the UK you can see them. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the best view of the pandas, we managed to see the male’s bottom as he lay sleeping, but I guess we were lucky to even see that as it’s entirely up to the pandas whether they come into sight or not! However, we did get to see the koalas and they were adorable 🙂
I would definitely go back to beautiful Edinburgh! A local said however that everyone always carries a pair of sunglasses and an umbrella as the weather is so all over the place! And boy is that true, it went from hot to cold, raining to sun… You must be prepared for it all haha.
