Exploring Edinburgh

The third entry of my adventures in Edinburgh makes up the first full day of my trip to Scotland, including touristy things such as the Edinburgh Castle, lunch and a Whiskey Experience, a visit to the Tartan Weaving Hall, a stop at the Elephant House and wandering around the city to find Greyfriars Bobby and St. Gary’s Cathedral.

Edinburgh is a truly wondrous city with lots of history and culture, and I definitely would not mind visiting again.

I wasn’t nervous anymore; in fact my nervousness had all but evaporated and my curiosity at being in a new place was taking over, which is something that I have happily found to becoming a more common reaction whenever I am traveling to a new undiscovered place.
