Aye, Scotland it is!!

A few weekends ago, the gang and I took a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland. It was quite the adventure. Edinburgh is one of the most charming cities I have seen. It has such a historic appearance that is appealing to the eye. It is obviously much smaller than London, and less crowded as well. At night, the streets were almost empty. It was nice in a way. while we were there we did a graveyard tour, saw Mary Poppins the musical, went to a camera obscura, and explored the Royal Mile. I would love to visit this city again someday.

We hit the streets of Edinburgh.
Of course, there was a bag-piper on the streets playing "Amazing Grace." What else could we expect in Scotland?
Greyfriars Bobby!
The Royal Mile.
The appearance of the streets in this city are so charming.

yeah trish. Actually, we are Scottish too. Our Ancestors, the McBrides, emigrated to the United States to join the church. I found out that historically, the McBrides were a part of the MacDonald clan, which fought with the Campbells incessantly. So basically you and Chase are like the the star-crossed lovers from enemy families, Romeo and Juliet.
