Scotland is one of those places that has been on my travel list but usually at the lower end behind countries like Japan, Egypt and South Africa. Then a series called Outlander came and all of a sudden my friends and I were longing for the Scottish highlands. We started talking about a roadtrip for the following fall and all the castles and lochs we’d like to see. The problem was that next fall was almost a year away and that’s when we started looking into a shorter trip to Edinburg. So that’s how Kea and I found ourselves in Edinburg last december.
Though it was windy and rained a lot I still think Edinburg is an incredibly beautiful city. I loved how the narrow streets and old buildings occasionally gave me a feeling I had travelled back in time. Hogwarts crossed my mind a couple of times. I also liked how close nature the city is, especially if you’re close to Arthur’s Seat.
I had my camera with me at all times but having now gone through the images I’ve noticed that there’s a lot I didn’t photograph. Like the endless amount of shops selling wool and cashmere products. You could buy all sorts of sweaters and scarves but strangely enough they didn’t sell yarn och socks. Or the lovely bed and breakfast we stayed at in Priestfield and the haggis breakfast I was “brave” enough to try. On the other hand, not everything has to be captured in an image, sometimes the camera has to stay in your backpack so you can observe and take in everything around you.
