Scotland – Edinburgh

Edinburgh, a city with charm and charisma. A city that blends the old and the new perfectly. A city where everything you possible want is around, from a medieval vibe for those who like culture and like to feel the continuity from the past until the present, to the vibrancy and energy from the new town when you can find shopping centres, restaurants, bars, pubs and modernity. And both sides of the city surrounded by nature.

Maybe because it was the first trip we did together, me and my husband,  I do have a soft spot for this place. We came here twice and never let us down, there are always something to find, to experience, to live.
