Three Things I am Looking Forward to in Edinburgh
Hello my lovely lovely blog readers and a very happy Tuesday to you! With so much anticipation for our upcoming trip Paris (in less than three weeks), I have neglected our trip up north to Edinburgh, Scotland this weekend! This of course, must be changed so I wanted to share the three things I am really looking forward to during our weekend away in Edinburgh.
#1: Edinburgh Castle
As you are aware from previous posts I love visiting castles and an upcoming visit to Edinburgh Castle is no exception. The Edinburgh Castle is rich with amazing British history. Like how King James VI was born there? Or that Mary, Queen of Scots (who the drink Bloody Mary was named for) ruled there and plotted against Henry VIII? (Yeah, I am a history geek.)
I cannot wait to photograph this landmark!
#2: Have a JK Rowling Moment
Not only am I a history geek, but I am also a full fledged Harry Potter nut. (Judge if you’d like.) With that, I am super excited to visit The Elephant House cafe, where JK Rowling wrote much of the Harry Potter novels. Is it silly and slightly touristy? Yeah, you betcha. But, after we visit the castle it looks like a perfect place to stop grab a coffee and cake for a bit of a break!
#3 Experiencing Rugby
One of the reasons why Neal and I are heading up to Edinburgh this weekend is that Neal’s sister Laurie got us tickets to the Wales vs. Scotland Six Nations Rugby match. I have very little knowledge about rugby, except that it is really similar to American football but with less gear. It should be a fun experience,even though I have no idea what to expect.
Of course, it goes without saying… I am excited to spend time with Neal’s sister Laurie and to meet his Dad for the first time. Fun times! Be on the lookout for photos of the adventure, or be sure to follow me on Instagram for all the Scottish fun!
