A couple of months back, a friend I met online a couple of years ago based on mutual love and adoration of a book announced that she was traveling to Scotland. One of our other friends from this small group already lives there so we decided we’d try our darndest to spend some time together. I checked flight prices, booked a hotel, and as they say, the rest is history! I flew in Friday afternoon (which turned into early evening when my flight was an hour late to leave and baggage claim became a nightmare) which only left me an hour or so to wander around before we were set to meet up for dinner. I had thought I’d try to get up to the castle and visit some more areas of Old Town but when all was said and done, my quick trip in and out of Edinburgh didn’t leave me with much time for wandering. What it did do, however, was remind me how beautiful a city it is. Oh, and get a chance to meet two wonderful ladies in person finally!
