Travel Throwback Thursday: Edinburgh 2017

Post contains affiliate links
 
 
I love looking back at the travels I've done, and thought about starting a new category called "Travel Throwback Thursday".
Who doesn't love a good alliteration, right?
 
Anyway. In November 2017, I travelled to Scotlands capital Edinburgh together with Helena de Ilenczfalva and stayed there for two days. Edinburgh has been on my bucket list forever since this is the place where J.K. Rowling lived when she wrote the books about Harry Potter, and as a true Potterhead I just had to go there. I was not disappointed!
 
We lived Old Town Chambers* in one of the "closes" on The Royal Mile and pretty much walked everywhere in the city to see everything from Dean's Village, to the Castel, to Calton Hill - and we even climbed Arthur's Hill. Such an awesome trip that I'm pretty sure I'll come back to and write a lot about in the future, but until then, this is how it looked like:
 
 
Me in front of Edinburgh Castle
 
Dugald Stewart Monument, probably one of the most photographed views of Edinburgh
 
 
The beautiful street Circus Lane
 
 
Climbing Arthur's Seat during sunset
 
 
 Bagpipe player in front of Edinburgh Castle
 
 
 Victoria Street or Diagon Alley? Nobody knows.
 
 
Our enormous suite (with three bedrooms) at Old Town Chambers*
 
 
Dean Village right outside central Edinburgh was so cute
