This trip to Scotland was the third time for me, but I never get bored with it. I have also visited once in London, last year.
There's so much to see in Scotland, but never enough time :)
My flight went from Helsinki via Amsterdam to Edinburgh. Fortunately, change of the airplane did not take long.
I packed lightly, so I could bring a lot of stuff back :D
I took with me only sea-themed clothes, so they are easy to mix and match.
My travel outfit:
The flight was on time. ( Flight took off at seven in the morning, so I had to be at the airport at five-.- ')
The first hour in Edinburgh, and here I am: shopping! :D
I bought a pair of women's "kilt". They were made of wool and made in Scotland. I found also nice kilt pin with familyname "MacLaine", its funny because my last name actually is Laine ^^
I went to see The Elepahnt House cafe. It is famous for the fact that J.K. Rowling started writing the Harry Potter books there.
Hot chocolate is the best:)
The famous dog. I heard that it's story is similar as the Japanese dog Hachikō :)
The next day I went sightseeing. The weather was not good, but it did not matter. I was staying at Stirling, so I used rentable bicycle to travel short distances.
On this picture I'm heading to train station.
It is nice to have an umbrella at Scotland :D
So, these are the Kelpies^^
The Kelpies are 30-metre high horse-head sculptures. These "horses" were designed by Scottish sculptor Andy Scott. Pretty cool!
Every time I have been in United Kingdom, I have seen the swans :)
This was the first update of my trip, I hope you like it :)
