Edinburgh CityTrip 2020

In today’s post I’m going to take you through my trip the Edinburgh these last couple of days. Every photo was made with my phone, so it’s a real time travel diary. For those of you who don’t know; Edinburgh is my all time favorite city in the world and I couldn’t be happier to have gone back this year and have the opportunity to show this gorgeous city to my mom!

Day 1

The first day we arrived in the afternoon. It’s a short flight from Amsterdam to Edinburgh, so we were in this city within a matter of hours. Even though I was visiting this city for the 3rd time already, I had never visited the Waterstones here before. So, that’s where we went:

This Waterstones was once again amazingly beautiful – but so is every Waterstones I’ve visited so far.

We also made a beautiful stroll through the city at sundown.

Day 2

We started day 2 by heading out of the door towards the Elephant house to grab ourselves a nice breakfast – and also to show my mom the birthplace of Harry Potter ;). The weather was the best on this day.

Day 3

The last full day we had in Edinburgh was super relaxing – and exciting (!!). We headed out the door and strolled through the city once again – but because it was raining a lot, we had to take shelter at the National museum of Scotland. After exploring the museum for some time, we headed off to the tattoo shop…

I got my second tattoo (both from Edinburgh), at Studio XIII on the Royal mile (amazing artist and service!!). I went for my favorite quote in the whole world – which you can find hidden somewhere on my website ;). But, more on this tattoo soon in a separate post – because I’m really happy with it!

And of course, we left Edinburgh (at the airport) with a BANG!

Lots of Love,
