This past weekend one of my best friends and I went on a mini adventure to the wonderful city that is Edinburgh. Considering I love to travel, I have made very few trips to cities around the UK, I always put seeing the sun and a foreign supermarket as a priority. However, I fell in love with the stormy skies and gothic buildings, it was so dramatic I made a resolution to go and see more of what the UK has to offer. We took advantage of cheap trains and hotels, using this deal and had a really wonderful time getting lost (our map reading skills were quite poor) and discovering a host of new things. Here are a few snap shots of the weekend.

I have a couple more posts planned as I haven't even touched on the amazing shopping opportunities that Edinburgh has.
