Our plans to go tenting on Saturday were spoilt by a forecast for torrential rain. So we went to Edinburgh instead. No matter how the weather is supposed to be, Edinburgh never disappoints. Edinburgh is where I fell in love with Scotland. We went to my two favourite places – places I’ll never tire to visit – The National Museum and The National Gallery. In addition, we went to Burntsfield in between to check out Falko, a German Konditorei. Although we were highly disappointed by the lack of crust on the bread and utterly shocked by the prices, it was still worth a visit (I mean I got Löwensenf there which is produced in my hometown, so it was definitely worth it). Here are some of the pictures I took:
Edinburgh – always pretty, even on a rainy day and yes I love cemeteries.
The National Museum – where everyone turns into a child at awe and yes I am a sucker for grandfather clocks.
The National Gallery: I could live in this place. They have so many beautiful women in there, my favourite is Lady Agnew by Singer Sargent. Unfortunately, the downstairs rooms are closed at the moment.
