A Day in Edinburgh - 12/09/14 - Snapshots Of My Life #2

Hello everyone! Today I'm back with another Snapshots Of My Life post, where I basically show you what I've been doing recently. Just over a month ago I went to Edinburgh with one of my friends to visit one of our other friends as she has just moved to Edinburgh for Uni and she was having a flat warming! During the day we all decided to have a wander around the city centre and I took some pictures on my iPhone, so I thought it'd be cool to show you as they came out pretty well!

After we got two trains and dropped off our stuff, we got the bus into the city centre and stumbled upon Princes Gardens (look below woo) which is just beautiful. Plus, it was a gorgeous day and there was not a cloud in the sky! Defo t-shirt weather, which in Scotland is like a tropical heat wave - every old man has their moobs out.






















After walking through Princes Gardens we went to the Royal Mile (filled with tartan shops) and walked up to Edinburgh Castle, which was so expensive so we basically just went to the free bits and then left.. I'm a student okay!



This particular picture above reminds me so much of York, I love old buildings and cobbled streets. Fun fact.


















Got ice-cream from that van. Vanilla. It was alright.






Just a heads up, I don't have a clue what that says..
















That above is the Royal Mile, tartan shops galore.




No idea what this cathedral/church is called but it looked pretty and was vvv busy!







That church above, is the same church in the picture below! 







Can I just say this band were AMAZING. They did cool, unique twists to traditional Scottish songs and my friends and I were dancing along to it (Scottish country dancing of course!)










That building there is National Art Gallery of Scotland and we popped in for a little nosy, it was actually really interesting and quite hilarious.. My friend and I ended up in a presentation of some guy speaking about a vase and my friend said to me "Hannah, I have no idea what he is saying, what's he saying?" I was just like, "You do know he's speaking French, right?" *facepalm*








We then had dinner at an Italian, went back to my friends flat, got ready, about 30 people came round, played drinking games, listened to The Cha Cha Slide and The Macarena (both my choices) then went out to a club called Propaganda and stumbled on home at about 3am to have homemade chips and cheese. Brilliant.




This was taken at about 3am, the river did look super pretty with all the lights, however apparently my camera didn't want to focus.. Still looks kinda cool though!



And this is the same river in the morning, from the other side! It's so pretty.


The next morning we woke up, cleaned the flat and went for my first Nando's. I personally am not the biggest fan of chicken and they kinda screwed up my order so I was a bit meh, however I will at some point probably go back and try it again.

And then we all went home and lived happily ever after, the end. Just kidding! In all seriousness after this we said our goodbyes and got our 2 trains back home, to then go out again in 3 hours to a club in our home town for another friend's 21st. Exhausted wasn't even accurate, I just wanted to sleep for days after it all!

So I hope you enjoyed reading this post, I loved looking over the photos again and chuckling at the memories. I hope you guys enjoy these more personal posts as I really love writing them. What have you been up too recently?

Have a lovely day, and don't stop smiling. :)

Hannah, xx
