Today I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from Edinburgh and a list of fun activities and things to do in the city. Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, located on the Firth of Forth near the North Sea. The city has a rich history dating back to the 12th century and has both a medieval Old Town, complete with narrow alleys and a castle that is home to Scotland’s crown jewels, and a New Town, with neoclassical architecture and spacious gardens.

And boy, do I have a lot to share… I actually think I will be bumping up my posting schedule to 4-5 posts per week (when time allows) for the next two months so that I can share as much of my Scotland and travel content as possible before heading back to the States.
