It’s a shame when you only have a short amount of time in a spectacularly cool and ancient city like Edinburgh.
I suppose it’s not that ancient.
Wait, wait…prior to the 7th century is pretty damn old… don’t you think?
Welllll…honestly everything is pretty ancient in comparison to Nashville.
It doesn’t matter, I’m not here to get into a history argument.
And as much as I’m sure everyone would appreciate me being the consumate tour guide and explaining by every little detail is in my photos, I’d rather just post them and if you have a question, please ask me in the comments.
YOU “Where was that cool graveyard photo taken?”
ME: “WHY THANK YOU FOR NOTICING HOW COOL IT IS! THAT WAS TAKEN AT ST. ANDREWS ABBEY. OR WHAT’S LEFT OF IT! HAR HAR.”
YOU: “OH YOU ARE SO FUNNY! AND I LOVE YOUR BLOG. CAN I SMELL YOUR HAIR AND BE YOUR FRIEND?”
ME: “YOU HAVE TO PAY THE MEMBERSHIP FEE.”
YOU: “OKAY SURE! WHAT IS IT?”
ME: “TWO LAVENDER PONIES WITH SPARKLY HOOVES, A UNICORN THAT SMELLS LIKE BUBBLEGUM AND SUNSHINE, AN OCTOPUS THAT CAN LIVE SAFELY IN MY WARDROBE, AND FRONT ROW TICKETS TO BJORK.”
YOU: “UMMMMMMM…I DON’T THINK I CAN GET THOSE THINGS FOR YOU.”
ME: “I DON’T THINK WE CAN BE FRIENDS.”
Something like that.
This isn’t to say that at times I won’t find myself feeling extraordinarily poetic and explanatory.
It’s very likely.
Sometimes I just don’t FEEL like it.
I’m sure you have days like that too.
Often, I just want you to look at my photos (or not look at them…I really don’t care) and be inspired to travel your pants off.
So, without further babbling…checked out the gray and marvelous city of EDINBURGH!!!!!!!!!!
Sidenote for above photo: Okay, I’m being totally honest here. I’ve had a dream with this in it since I was a little girl. This exact photograph. Serious as a heart attack. I’d never seen it before I took this photo. Except in my repeat dream. No idea what that means, but there it is.
Freaked me out pretty good.
BY THE WAY, APPARENTLY THERE ARE NO FAST WALKING MEN IN 70′S LEISURE SUITS ALLOWED IN EDINBURGH CASTLE. JUSTSOYOUKNOW.
I’m not going to lie. This ain’t no Hampton Court y’all. (Don’t I sound snobby!)
I think most of the things in the castle were on loan from London museums. Which, is sort of messed up.
Hey London, Give Scotland back it’s stuff.
THIS IS THE EDINBURGH SCHOOL OF UNICORNS
FANCY PANTS TEA TIME FOR ME!! IN SCOTLAND! WITH MY HUSBAND!
The days winds down…
One more Unicorn for the road…
Next up…the AMAZING B&B where we stayed in Edinburgh!!
