Pack Your Bags: Edinburgh, Scotland

Oh man, you guys...
time flies when you're having fun.

I've been having such a good time 
over the Jubilee weekend,
I kinda didn't realize it'd been 5 days since I last blogged.

Not like I've ever been the best example of consistency in blogging...
but still, 
that's a bit long even for a slacker like myself.

Today, I've found myself in Scotland.

I'll be near Edinburgh for a few days
before heading up north to the amazing Isle of Skye.

It's not nearly as sunny as when I was here the other week
during that glorious heatwave.

The city was alive with people strolling in the sunshine along the Royal Mile.

In other places, you'd find masses of scantily-clad people melted over patches of grass
or enjoying a drink outside a cafe with friends.

ps. this is my favorite hotel in edinburgh, the fraser suites. luxe rooms, amazing location, you can always find great rates...
and the rooms have small kitchenettes!

Today that burst of sunshine-beaming-tank-top-wearing weather
is totally & completely gone.

But as I look out the window of the 200 year-old house
I'm staying in this week
and work my way through a hot cup of tea,
it still feels pretty lovely.

PS. Tyler stayed back in London, 
and got to see the entire Royal Family pass by
near our flat after I left this morning.

He said they were waving hello to everyone on the street
and looked so happy & friendly.

Obviously, I'm completely jealous & not speaking to him.
