Traveling in Scotland Part 2: Edinburgh

Here’s the long overdue second part of my Scotland trip 😀 This is dedicated to our day trip to Edinburgh, which was absolutely brilliant. We started by visiting the National Museum of Scotland (YAY for free museums!) and by shopping, of course!

For lunch we chose the Elephant House, which Potter fans might well know – it’s the birthplace of Harry Potter, and J.K. Rowling wrote Potters while sitting in that particular café. They had really great food and, especially, absolutely brilliant carrot soup.

We also somehow ended up both into a Christian festival and a rock concert organized by Hard Rock Cafe. Slightly random but I guess adventures are part of vacation 😀 At the end of the day we had dinner at Bella Italia and below you can see my completely delicious pasta carbonara. My mouth starts to water just thinking about it…

All in all, the trip to Scotland was wonderful and I hope to visit again sometime! Also, the weather agrees with me because my skin burns easily. And huge thanks to my friend for putting up with me the entire time 😀
