Edinburgh is a city that calls you to explore it by foot

No matter how you get to Edinburgh – by train, bus or cab from the airport – When you drive-in to the royal mile area it is magical.  Royal Mile is one of the oldest parts of the city with a road that starts nearby Edinburgh Castle and winds down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

This volcanic hill with sharp cliffs that have been cut by glaciers is the home of Edinburgh Castle.  The buildings and structures in this location are spectacular, magnificent, and breathtaking.

Edinburgh is a city that calls you to explore it by foot – narrow streets, passageways, stairs and hidden churchyards. Every nook and cranny will pull you away from the main streets. Make sure you pack comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk hills.

If you are a theater connoisseur? Edinburgh is home to many theatres, where art lovers flock to witness on stage performances such as plays, operas, music concerts, and cabarets.

We were sadly not able to visit Arthur’s Seat. To get a birds-eye view of the city, you can scale Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano, which is one of the most popular attractions and gives you a priceless view of their stunning architecture. Or The Calton Hill, home to Edinburgh’s most prominent monuments.

Edinburgh was the perfect place to stop by and spend time speaking with the owner of the souvenir shops, one-off restaurants, and gift stores. We spend time sharing LingoHut with them and understand their needs in advertisement.  LingoHut will be catering advertising space in late 2018 to the small vendors giving the little guy the opportunity to be seen globally. These are exciting times for LingoHut.

My partner and I often take breaks from promoting our free service at local parks to see how they differ. The parks are a great place to unwind. I have never seen flowers as I did in Holyrood Park. The colors of the flowers were spectacular, deep and rich.

We are blessed to travel and meet beautiful people around the world.

Edinburgh is a must to put on your wish list especially if you love architecture and history.

Our next destination London via the train.  We are looking forward to seeing the landscape between these two places.
