3 months into this new venture of mine and I'm going strong, yay me! I'm bringing you on another different type of day this month. We've had a day out to the beach, a normal day of housework and now a very busy day indeed...
1 // Early train for two to Edinburgh!
2 // We weren't even in the city 10 minutes before whipping our cameras out and photographing the beautiful North Bridge.
3 // Before the first of the museums opened, we took to Greyfriars Graveyard to pay our respects to Bobby!
4 // The literally 'awesome' great hall of the National Museum of Scotland.
5 // We spent so much time in the extensive National Museum of Scotland that I had to include another photo. This is from the Restless Earth exhibition.
6 // Our lunch break at the Chinese buffet was so fast that I forgot to even take a photo! But straight after we headed on the hunt for the somewhat hidden Writers Museum. This is a portrait of many of those of whom the museum is dedicated to.
7 // This lamppost in the square outside of the Writers Museum reminded me of Narnia and I needed a photo there!
8 // A highlight of the day was seeing Claire getting to hold a couple of birds of prey and talking to the handlers about the history of falconry, as well as where wearing the glove on the left came from.
9 // In the Museum of Childhood (which I have visited a couple times previously), I spotted something I hadn't seen before there. A couple of the legendary Brothers Grimm Fairytale books!
10 // Next port of call and last due to it getting nearing closing time, was the Museum of Edinburgh. Despite its bright exterior I didn't even know it existed. I will be returned on my next visit however as time was limited and there were still lots to see!
11 // Home time and some Millie's Cookies for the journey. Our feet were so tired that these 45mins travelling were welcomed.
12 // Back to my boys <3
As you can see Claire and I spent a lovely, jam packed day in the capital of Scotland, celebrating her Birthday early. If you kept count you will see that along our way spent time at 5 main places of interest. If you are interested in seeing more about each of these places there will be full length posts to follow in the coming weeks.
I am always interested in hearing your stories, so let me know what you enjoy doing or seeing in Edinburgh in the comments!
