This morning I had to wake up at 5am while it was still dark and gloomy because I was travelling to Edinburgh Castle! Unfortunately, it remained pretty gloomy for the rest of the day but that didn't stop me for exploring such an beautiful city. I was just here for the day so I spent most of my time exploring Edinburgh Castle. It was a lovely experience to learn the history of the castle and to just get a general feel of Edinburgh.
The plane ride was only one hour and I didn't need to bring any luggage with me so that all went very smoothly. From the airport, I caught a bus which took me right to city about a 20 minute walk away from Edinburgh Castle. It was funny walking around all the tourist shops that were selling kilts because my high school uniform was a kilt and I kept seeing the exact pattern everywhere. I really love tartan and plaid so I was really in heaven just walking around. I even got to have a look at a tartan making factory which was pretty fascinating.
By about 5:30pm, it was time for me to head back to the airport and journey my way back to London. I'd love to come back in the summer one day and stay for a few days.
If you want to see more photos I took of my whole UK visit, I've started uploading some onto my Flickr page: Here
