Edinburgh Day One: Food, Food, More Food, and Holyrood Park

August 26, 2015 0 Comments

After that jet-lagged day in London, we hopped on a plan for a short trip to Edinburgh. I knew the plane had brought us to the right place when, while we were standing in line waiting for a bus to take us into town, we saw a man standing in front of us wearing a kilt in the cold night air.

At around 2 AM, we arrived at our flat (rented through AirBNB). Needless to say, after several days of travel and minimal sleep, we slept quite late the next day. Of course, we did sleep late the entire time we were in Scotland. That midnight sun in the summer makes early to bed early to rise a bit difficult to actually pull off!

Anyway, our first full day involved a late breakfast at McDonalds (it’s actually yummier there!), grocery shopping, a full Scottish Breakfast for lunch, hiking the Salisbury Crags in Holyrood Park, and walking by Holyrood Palace. We saved Arthur’s Seat for another day when we were a bit more rested and awake.

Just a week bite!
Our street for a month!

















Tea and Penguins to end the day
