I’ve been dreaming of Edinburgh. I visited for the first time a couple of years ago and I’m wondering if I could squeeze in a weekend there in May. My first trip was one of the very few times when I’ve explored a new city alone. Ben was working, so I had a couple of days to just wander round and soak up the atmosphere. This time I’d love to explore more deeply. I’m always surprised when I visit somewhere in the UK outside of the South East – people are so friendly! It was already a wonderful opportunity to get away from it all for a few days, and the chatty locals made my trip even better.

Here are some photos of my last trip – such a beautiful city! I hadn’t expected to be able to see the surrounding countryside.
