Initial trip in the capital of Scotland
First visit in the capital of Scotland
A month ago I received a special winning prize from the office, which included a free vacation to the Scottish main city for me and a person I pick to go on with. Every little thing was set up by the assistant in the office, therefore me and Mark took the airplane tickets and the instructions on just how to reach our Edinburgh getaway apartment as soon as we go to the airport.
We got accommodated and I was satisfied with all the comforts I found in the serviced apartment in Edinburgh that people were renting. Because that was our very first time to the Scottish capital, just before the holiday I made a very good research on the internet and built a program of just what we are to see. For the very first day of our stay Mark and I got on the sightseeing buses, to get to understand the town and to select the places we wanted to come back to on the following days. We covered all four bus trips out there and we did some good photographs.
The next day, as we woke up in our huge comfy bedroom, we got capuccino and some fruits and left our Edinburgh apartment for a walk to the Royal Mile area where are concentrated the majority of the historic sights in the city. We spent an hour or so checking out the Edinburgh Castle and then we visited the Holyroodhouse Palace on the other side, while along we enjoyed some other historical places like the Cathedral St. Giles and the House of John Knox, had a coffee and bought some souvenirs. I was happy I had my comfortable walking shoes on, because we wandered a lot.
Our 2nd sightseeing day ended with a visit to the Arthur’s Seat, wherefrom we could take pleasure in some good views in the direction of the city, before we had a nice dinner at a pub near our Edinburgh holiday flat.
