The sun was shining on Edinburgh today and with that, it seemed like everybody had a smile on their face. Rob and I certainly did as we walked up Arthur’s Seat. This extinct volcano is quite the climb, but well worth it for the views you get when you reach the top.
On the way up, we bumped into so many tourists, and I always love seeing Edinburgh through their eyes. It’s easy to forget how old Scotland’s capital is and how much history there is associated with it, until you hear the wonder in visitors’ voices. It reminds me that I shouldn’t take this wonderful place for granted.
When we got to the top, it was super, super windy. A kind American couple offered to take our picture – I love how windswept we both look. This photo made me giggle all the way home.
Our climb certainly got our tummies rumbling and so we stopped at one of our favourite haunts, Treacle, on the way home for some food. Rob had pad Thai and I had sweet potato and quinoa hash browns, served with poached eggs and avocado. I’m desperately trying to get back into healthy eating, so even though we were dining out, I decided to shun the burger and chips in favour of something a little more nutritious.
The next few weekends are set to be really busy, so it was nice to have a quiet weekend just the two of us. What did you all get up to this weekend?3 likes
