Keep Edinburgh Weird

Last weekend I had the chance to travel to Edinburgh, Scotland for the weekend to attend a derby bootcamp (yes, another!) and be a tourist. Don’t worry, I brought along dissertation crap to work on, too! The flight took a measly 25 minutes once we were in the air… talk about a short nap.

My hostel was cute and in the old part of Edinburgh, with lots of things to see nearby. I was right down the road from the Edinburgh Castle, explored the Royal Mile every day, climbed Arthur’s Seat and ate all the food I could find!

The weather was beautiful for the most part- only got rained on going to the derby boot camp, and I had a spare change of clothes with me anyways. Edinburgh was delightfully weird and there was always something going on that I could stop and watch for a little while. There was a lot of walking in Edinburgh, rain or shine!

This magician had a balloon on his head. See again: Edinburgh is awesomely weird.

I have also never heard or seen as many bagpipes in my life as I did during my four days in Edinburgh. Also: kilts are totally a thing and I giggle at them Every. Single. Time. The casual kilt is just my favorite.
