Scotland Reminiscing

Scotland Reminiscing

I originally posted this on my old blog in August of 2014.

"So I spent a couple weeks of last month in Scotland, and I can't help but reminisce about it every day. We stayed in Edinburgh, which is the country's capital. As with all European cities, it's a conglomeration of old with new, and I was enamored with its old world essence. But I'll let more stories of my trip unravel on the blog in the next few days along with pictures I took while on my holiday. Here, I've posted a few of my photos so you can partake with me in this Scottish bliss. Speaking of which, I think I'll head downstairs and make myself a spot of Scottish Breakfast Tea, accompanied by a piece of Highland shortbread… or two." August 2014

Seeing as I wasn't very consistent with my old blog, I never actually got to documenting more tales from my Scotland trip and excursions to Northern England, but I've included a few additional photos, including a few from Northern England since we made our way down there for a couple days.

I met the loveliest people in Scotland, made good friends, and was overwhelmed by its beauty. Aren't you?
