This week I am in Edinburgh for a short holiday. It’s great to return again, I haven’t been for a few of years, and then it was for the festival so the atmosphere was a bit different.
Its nice to be here though when its a bit quieter, but more relaxed, and there aren’t mile long queues out every door! The Royal Mile does seem awfully quiet however without all the performers milling around.
It’s great too to have a chance to see all the places that we never got the chance to before, and nice not to be on the go all the time rushing to shows!
I left my laptop at home this week, and so without all the usual distractions its lovely to be able to unwind, write by hand, and generally just soak up the atmosphere.
Today, we went to the zoo, which was great! I hadn’t been for about 12 years so it was fun to go back.
I’m looking forward to exploring the city a little more over the next few days.
