Overseas Adventures: Scotland

Loch Ness

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Scotland - from Edinburgh (one of my favourite places I've ever visited, I've decided) - to further north seeking out the Loch Ness monster, I could quite happily spend more of my days exploring rolling green hills and quaint cobbled streets.
We spent a few days in Edinburgh all up, walking around the Royal Mile, visiting the castle and going shopping. On our first proper day there, it was the sunniest day ever - Edinburgh's so gorgeous when the sun is shining. We were quite lucky with the weather!
Christmas in Edinburgh / Inverness

Being there for New Years was perfect timing and such a cool experience (or a very noisy experience, if you look at it another way), as the apartment we were in had a view of one of the New Year's Eve concerts that were going on - the stage was literally right there when you looked out the window. Not my finest night's sleep, but it was memorable.

Apart from Edinburgh, we stopped off in a few little places and explored bits and pieces - a castle here, a castle there - and during our road trip further north we stopped off at hidden lunch spots, and admittedly got lost with the GPS. We stayed a few nights in Inverness, which is a really lovely little town near Loch Ness (not a fan of the drive there, to be honest! Car sickness, no thank you!). One thing that amazes me about many places in the UK or a little further afield, is that there are so many lovely old buildings and streets to look at and take about a million pictures of. You just don't get the same kind of old world history in New Zealand.

Stirling Castle / Urquhart Castle

Told you these posts weren't going to be particularly exciting or lengthy! But it's nice to look back on what I did and reflect about it just a little bit. Next up on the list is England - where we went to London, Bath and a few little towns! I'll be putting the next post up in a little while.
