I only had half a day in Edinburgh, but I made the most of it!
Edinburgh, Scotland is a beautiful town. I wish I had more time there on my visit last year, but sadly I did not. That happens. I was in Glasgow on business and, having arrived on a Saturday, decided to take the train up to Edinburgh on Sunday. So after sleeping in that morning, I headed on up to Edinburgh.
Why didn't I get up early and spend more time there? Good question. Here's the answer: I cannot sleep on planes. I try and try, and never succeed. So on all my Europe trips, I am awake all night. Hence, I tend to leave a day early, knowing full well that I will crash hard the first night and sleep in a bit the following morning. Ok, enough about that.
So when I was Googling all things Edinburgh, I saw this pub mentioned several times, so I made sure to stop by and get some shots. No, not those kind of shots. I'm talking about photos here. ;-) Anyways, it's rather cool looking and though it started to rain on me as I stood there, I'm glad I got the shot. Maybe on a future visit to Scotland I can spend a little more time here and really get to know the city, because it's quite lovely!
