Well, Hubby and I took off to Scotland. Can I say wow? I took loads of pictures and for the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some of those on my blog. I’ll start with where we landed in this great country, Edinburgh.
I don’t think I’ve ever been to a place where everywhere you look, every glance over your shoulder, turn of your head, there’s another photograph to take. The city is so old you feel it when you amble through the streets.
When we got there, the Fringe was happening. The Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world. Street entertainers at every corner. Music, bands, and tons of shopping. Our favorite thing to do was to find a pub on the Royal Mile, sit outside sipping wine and people watching.
We lucked out and the Royal Edinburgh Military tattoo was happening while we were there too, and we got tickets. This is an annual series of Military tattoos performed at the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle by British Armed Forces, Commonwealth and International military bands and display teams. It was colorful and awe-inspiring.
You know me well enough to know that I wanted to visit a few graveyards. Yes, I love walking around and seeing graves that dated back to the 1700’s. We even did a ghost tour. Scotland had its share of spooky stories.
The trip was mind boggling and got my creative juices flowing. I even got an idea for a book.
If you ever get a chance to go, do it.
Okay, until next week.
