Pack Your Bags: Edinburgh's Elephant House

If you go to Edinburgh,
you're bound to visit
the main historical sites of the town...

The Edinburgh Castle.

Holyrood Palace.

John Knox's House.

The Royal Mile.

But these days,
most people visiting the city
also stop by a place of more recent
historical importance...

You know, where JK Rowling famously penned
the first of the Harry Potter stories on napkins 
while she would nurse a single cup of coffee all day
instead of sitting around in her flat
that she couldn't afford to heat.

It's a bit dorky to want to go there, 
but hey-
if you do want to go,
just know that you're in good company.

{I've been loads of times.}

Plus, it's so close to the historical sites
that you won't be putting yourself too far off track
 from the "respectable tourist site list."

The room is really pretty and has great lighting...
with a killer view of the castle.

It's the perfect place to come for a light lunch....

.... or to relax with a book
at tea time.

{Sidenote: they have such good desserts.}

So make sure you add a quick visit to 
to your trip to Edinburgh!
