Another Sunday, of another month, in another town; I woke up in Edinburgh before the sun has started its journey over the North Sea.
And so, covered up in all the clothes I could get my hands on (I have found that if there is one thing Aberdeen has over Edinburgh, it is definitely the milder climate… well, at least for winter), I began making my way towards Arthurs Seat. (Guess where the quest of wanting to do that comes from – hello Jennifer!!)
Things Edinburgh has over Aberdeen tho: EPIC PANORAMIC VIEWS! (The view from Broad Hill is not really the same thing… )
… And a cultural life, and beautiful buildings, and trams… This could take a while.
Of course, I was on the wrong side of the ol volcano when the sun began to reveal its presence so I made a quick u-turn.
In one direction I had a pinkish orange sunrise, and behind me a rainbow. Dreamy, huh?! Was very pleased with my decision to be an early bird.
Afterwards I woke J up in the hostel and we headed out once again in the crispy Edinburgh morning. On the breakfast hunt, ending up at Moon & Hare. You can read the entire list of where we ate in Edinburgh here.
Continuing through town, we ended up in Dean Village.
A former village that has now been immersed by the city.
We ended the evening with vegan pizza and crème brûlée at Nova, before heading to the cinema for Trainspotting 2. J wrote a Facebook status along the lines* of “Pretty fun to watch Trainspotting in Edinburgh, it’s like watching The Goodfellas in New York, Jaws on a boat or La la land in La la land” (*ok that was a complete copy/paste).
