TRAVEL | Edinburgh Photo Diary: Part II

In this post, I'm sharing with you photos of my last two days in Edinburgh. This was such a short stay... But here we come to one of the city's main attractions, the castle! It was really interesting to visit, and took us a few hours.
Afterwards, as the weather was so sunny and warm, we changed our plans last minute and skipped the museums to go to the beach instead! I had not properly been to the beach in... years, now that I think of it! Although we did not actually go in the water (let's not be completely crazy!), I really enjoyed that afternoon. 
Overall, I was really surprised about how good the weather was during these four days. We couldn't have hoped for better!

In these two days, I loved...

~ visiting the castle and its museums. The War Memorial is such a moving monument, I cannot recommend enough to go and visit it - we should all take a moment to honour the men and women who died for their country and for the people.
~ walking around the old city, among the quirky shops and little cafés. At night, the atmosphere is even more pleasant and magical.
~ trying beautiful vintage dresses in Armstrong's, Grassmarket. They have the most amazing range of items from all decades, and for reasonable prices! The best vintage shop I've ever been to.
~ going to the seaside at Portobello. The weather was so fine, it was a joy to walk on the beach. I treated myself to a 99 flake; it really felt like summer!
~ having a peaceful morning in the Botanic Gardens. I spent all my time taking photos of all the flowers I saw. It is a great place to visit, and the greenhouses were quite impressive!

I leave you with the photos from the last part of my trip below, and I hope you enjoyed this little photo diary!

    1. Thanks Erin! I really hope you'll go someday ;) xx

  2. Trying on the vintage dresses sounds fun, I love finding vintage shops that aren't super expensive!

    1. It's a lot of fun yes, but the worst is when the dresses actually suit you but you know you'll never have the opportunity to wear them so you just have to leave them behind :( xx
