Documentaries, pictures and film simply cannot capture the magnificence that is Edinburgh, and I know I can’t either. Many have captured Edinburgh by pen, far more famous and more eloquent I could hope to be. I’ve actually started and stopped this post many times, stretched out from October to January. My inability to give you a small glimmer of insight in to our time spent in this wonderful city made me quit writing all together for the past few months. I have decided to try again and post whatever result I am left with.
Our first day was one of the longest of my life. I of course couldn’t sleep very well, despite having been fully packed two days beforehand and my house being clean (which for me is a necessity before a trip). We even tried to sleep and wake up on Scotland time. I was very excited to wear my Very Hungry Caterpillar socks through security, although no one else seemed to notice.
