Edinburgh, Day 1

I love Edinburgh.  I think over the 6 months I ended up in the city at least 4 times. I love the architecture, the history, and just the city itself.

For my first trip there, we stayed in the city for two jam-packed days. But day one had some of most favourite sites.

Edinburgh Castle

Princess Gardens

Wanderings in the city

Edinburgh (87)

The Elephant House (my most favourite place)

The Elephant House is a cafe in Edinburgh, that happens to be where J.K. Rowling started writing Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I wanted to go here for a long time.

Edinburgh (96)

Edinburgh (103)

Arthur’s Seat, a proper hill in the heart of the city, with amazing views of Edinburgh.

It was tiring going up, but even more tiring going down, as it was decided to go a different route.  Fortunately there were lots of opportunities for breaks 🙂

 

That evening we did some exploring around the hostel itself, but all in all, one great day exploring this fine city.
