Relaxing after a fun weekend
Across the Valentines weekend me and Harry spent our time in the beautiful northern city of Edinburgh! Whilst away in the Caribbean (which you read about here), we made a list of new places we would like to visit in 2016! Australia, Jamaica and Santorini were on that list but so was Scotland too! I have never even visited Scotland before (a little sad when its just 4-5 hours away in car) and have always wanted too. We spent the weekend in a Novotel hotel which was a fairly good priced and very nice! The hotel is 4 star and was perfectly located right next to a tram stop outside the door making Edinburgh sights easily accessible. Because it was Valentines, this was an easy option and couldn't be happier with our stay :)

On arrival, we noticed the sudden drop in temperature and the snow in the hills! However, as soon as we started walking around the city to do a bit of sightseeing the snow came down and to be honest it made it look even more beautiful than it is. On the first night we visited the local theatre and watched the famous Blood Brothers! We had AMAZING seats (probably the best in the house) and throughly enjoyed the show!

After that we went for cocktails and wine and visited some lovely wine bars in the city.

The next day we went touring! You can't go to a new city and not act as a tourist for the day! We walked everywhere! Up and down hills, to the top of the castle and down again and through all the tiny little shops that Edinburgh had to offer. We loved all of the small cafe's and spent most of our time in these keeping warm and enjoying homemade shortbread!

As part of my travel plans in 2016 I hope you enjoyed my pictures and you can see more and what I get up to on my Instagram here
