Edinburgh Diary

Edinburgh is something else. It's surprisingly smaller than you'd expect, and a lot more breathtaking too. It lives up to every expectation as far as beauty is concerned, but most astonishing of all, it's very quaint and quintessentially English (a comment which, in light of Scotland's recent referendum regarding its independence, might not go down like a chaser of post-medicine sugar).

Everything is within walking distance, which is a-OK if you've got the right footwear. We'd have asked Compede for a sponsorship if we knew what our feet would go through in the four days we spent traipsing around the Scottish landmark. It was worth the suffering, though. Verdant hills carrying imperious architecture on one hand, the creativity and modernity of the Fringe Festival and the National Museum of Scotland on the other, gel together without dissonance or any sense of detachment.

The photos down below are from our second and third day in Edinburgh, where we visited the aforementioned Museum (a must-see) and Leith, the neighbouring port, as well as Maison de Moggy (a cat café full of standoffish felines that all but hurt our feelings) and some amazing eateries. We're throwing in a few Instagram shots for good measure!
