Edinburgh January 2008

Home from Edinburgh last night refreshed and revitalised! For just a 2 night break it really felt like it was longer, and just long enough to forget about work and the rest of the nonsense. I got to see family and got to wander the lovely streets of Edinburgh!

If there was one city I could say I wish Dublin was more like it would be Edinburgh, there’s something that just feels uniquely homely in this city, the cobble streets, the sandstone Victorian houses and the lovely setting that is Edinburgh Castle. In a way it reminds me a lot of Galway city but a bit more special, you just feel like the winding alleys and steep endless streets with steep stairways could tell a 101 stories, and you would want to listen!

I guess it’s just a city I felt at home at and would class myself as a nervous traveller, always assuming the worst will happen but felt at ease in Edinburgh!

Didn’t go out partying too much but would reccomend a bit of grub in the The Filling Station (sit on the Royal Mile) and The Living Room (on George’s Street) for great atmosphere and good cocktails!
Well needless to say I would recommend if you have never been – GO!
