Each Saturday from now on, I’ll be sharing a photo with you from my travels around the world.

This week, the photo comes from Edinburgh, Scotland.

I decided to bring you a photo from Edinburgh this week because it’s where I currently am! I’m in Scotland’s capital for #Blogmanay, a blog-tastic take on the city’s annual Hogmanay celebrations to ring in the New Year. Edinburgh is a truly gorgeous city, and this street (Victoria St. which curves down into the Grassmarket) is one of my favorites. I love the old stone buildings that are characteristic of Edinburgh, along with the pops of color from the shops below.

    Love the photo! Especially the contrast between the colorful houses at street level and the brown of the other buildings. You get the feeling they’re trying to revive the place.

      You shouldn’t be saying English with regard to Scotland! They don’t like it here. Scotland is Scottish and very proud of it. Not fond of the English, I’m afraid. Edinburgh is a lovely city, as is Glasgow which has thE friendliest people in all of the U.K.

    Going to Edinburgh this saturday.

    Staying 2 nights in an hostel then going on a trip with Haggis Tours (who I think I remember you have been with).

    Really looking forward to it. First time living from a rucksack and staying in hostels. If I like it I may travel a bit more. I am a bit older then your normal traveler so fingers crossed I will get on with them all.
