Edinburgh, Scotland.

While in the UK, I hadn’t planned on going up to Scotland. But I had a few days in between Liverpool and heading back to London and couldn’t decide where else in England to go. My friend Brendon was in Edinburgh and said I should meet him there. And so, I did. In my three short days in Scotland, I fell in love and am dying to go back, explore more of the cities, explore more of the countryside, find the Loch Ness Monster, eat a deep fried Mars Bar. But, for now, three days in Edinburgh will have to suffice…

Pub crawl in Edinburgh, Scotland

My friend convinced me to go on a the Budget Backpackers pub crawl. It ended up with me almost losing my point and shoot in a club and sitting on a bench crying until a security guard found it on the floor. This is why I don’t like pub crawls. But anyways, this drink was called Kryptonite. So, obviously, I was afraid it was going to kill me.

Fairy sighting in Edinburgh, Scotland

While on a dark night tour our guide was telling us about the fairies who lived on this hill. And I snapped this photo. I am convinced that I captured a fairy on “film.”

Heart of Midlothian in Edinburgh, Scotland

Just as I was going to take a photo of this heart of the sidewalk of the Royal Mile, a man spit on it and I just thought, “gross,” and walked away. I later found out that locals spit on the Heart of Midlothian for good luck.

Haggis in Edinburgh, Scotland

My first haggis, neeps, and tatties. It was actually pretty tasty (though dousing it in gravy might have helped).
