If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know that Edinburgh is my all-time favourite city. I love it more than anywhere else that I have ever visited and try to go back every year. It’s almost like another home to me now! On Thursday, I arrived back from a four day trip up to the Scottish capital with my friends. Despite some (read: a lot) of rain, we had the best time. It was just the relaxing break I needed after the stress of a major diet change and year abroad planning! I didn’t plan on blogging…

Hi guys! I don’t know about you, but my favourite blogs to read and to write are food based, so here’s another foodie post for you… As promised in a previous post, Edinburgh Days 3 & 4, this is a (raving) review of Hectors, a wonderful pub in Stockbridge, Edinburgh.

I am so excited to write this post because last week was the best. Luke and I took a four day trip to my favourite city, Edinburgh, for a short, relaxing city break. It was perfect. We arrived mid afternoon on Monday and went for a wander, exploring George’s Street, Princes Street and finished with a drink on Rose Street, before heading back to our flat for a super yummy Chinese takeaway (I mentioned the Chinese restaurant that we love here, if you’re interested). I’m not a huge fan of flying, so a chilled night in after our journey was…

Last night Luke and I arrived back from our trip to Edinburgh. We had the best time, I didn’t want it to end and I cannot wait to start writing up my travel diary of our time there (so keep an eye out!). Before that, though, as I am so excited to share what we did, I thought I would show you a quick round-up of our visit in photographs. Enjoy!
