Sometime when you travel you’ll have one attraction on a list you plan on visiting if you run out of other activities. For me, on our trip to Edinburgh the attraction was St. Giles’ Cathedral. It’s usually stained glass windows and their vivid colours that bring to the cathedrals but I’m also intrigued by the architecture and ornaments. Strangely enough we walked pass St.Giles’ a couple of times at the beginning of our stay. I was maybe expecting it to be much bigger so I didin’t pay attention to it. Then one day when were buying jewelry across the street, I suggested we go in and have look since it was raining and we were not in a hurry.
Am I glad we went inside! While my travel companion befriended the kind ladies in the cathedral’s shop, I walked around and studied the details of this architectural gem.  I really liked the blue colour of the ceiling, it was so vivid. The chandeliers had a modern look almost futuristic look, like something that could have been in Jupiter Ascending.
