Edinburgh, Scotland: A Photo Diary


In the summer of 2015, I spent four days in Edinburgh, Scotland. I planned on returning to Scotland for the spring semester of my junior year to study abroad in Glasgow. Unfortunately, I had to back out due to my poor mental health at the time.

Recently, I have been dreaming of visiting Scotland more and more. Edinburgh is hands-down my favorite city that I have been to. The architecture was gorgeous and everyone was so friendly. I felt like I was in a dream the entire time I was there.

Although it’s been over a year since I was there, I wanted to dedicate a post to my photos from Edinburgh. Every time I look at my photos from that trip, I fall in love with the city all over again. I guarantee you these pictures will leave you dying to visit Edinburgh, too.










I’m so excited for my blogging friend, Caitlyn, to study abroad in Glasgow next semester! I will definitely be living vicariously through her.

It is my goal to travel back to Scotland in 2018. A post-graduation trip there seems like the perfect excuse to go back. I will definitely be saving up in hopes of going!
