“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”

Reizen…reizen naar andere steden, landen, maar ook fictieve werelden. Het uitproberen van nieuwe gerechten of iemand compleet zien opgaan in de wereld van cosplay, voor mij is het allemaal een onderdeel van reizen. Ik neem je maar al te graag mee op al deze “journeys” hier op de blog. Ik schrijf regelmatig over nieuwe hotspots en mijn reizen, evenals fotodagboeken van dit alles. Reizen jullie met mij mee?

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is such a beautiful city. Has any of you ever been there? No, yes? Either way, it is definitely worth to visit. Today in this photo diary I’m sharing a few of my favourite spots (which also happen to be photogenetic, hihi). Please let me know in the comments if I’ve missed out on your favourite spot in Edinburgh!

EdinburghThe Royal Mile is of course one of the nr. 1 places to go to, and for good reason. The buildings are beautiful.

Whiskey tasting

When you think about whisky you probably think about Scotland. And when you think about Scotland, no doubt whisky comes to mind as well. No surprises probably when I tell you we did a whisky tasting when we were in Scotland last year. I have to admit that I never tasted it before we went to Scotland, but the friend I travelled with had and she rightly so convinced me to have a sip 😉 The best way, like with any tasting of local products, is to go to the source – in this case a local brewery. Unfortunately, if you don’t have your own (rental) car in Scotland it is hard to reach most of those place. Edinburgh has a solution for this: The Scotch Whisky Experience.

Burger

I’m a sucker for a good burger. As a foodie I love trying new kinds of restaurants, experiment with dishes, and explore local food, but I will never turn down a tasty burger. Luckily, nowadays there are good burger restaurants around everywhere – no need to get a tasteless one at McDonalds. Nope, gourmet burgers are the way to go. I’ve written down a couple of my favourite burger places in Europe but I’m also curious about yours! Make sure to share them 🙂

seafoodinedinburghEdinburgh is situated right at the coast of Scotland. The city has its own harbour and is not unknown to fresh fish and seafood. Many restaurants serve fish and seafood. And no, I don’t mean fried fish at the pubs (which is a must try in the UK anyway at least once). During my visit to Edinburgh there were two fish/seafood dishes that I loved, thatyou should definitely consider trying too.

Europe bucket list

At the beginning of 2015, very cliché at the start of a new year, I decided to make a bucket list for travelling. There are so many destinations I still want to visit and hoped that putting them down would help me go new places. So far it has worked out a little actually. I’m sharing below 5 of the Europe destinations I have on the list – and a fun fact is that I already crossed off one of these during summer and will be able to cross off another one in December!

GlasgowVsEdinburgh

A travel wish of mine was to visit Scotland. Earlier this year that dream finally came through. We considered visiting Glasgow and Edinburgh for this trip. Eventually we did both and I’m glad we did so. My favourite out of the two in the end was Edinburgh for sure, but combining them in one trip seems like a good deal to me. I’ll talk you through the pros and cons of both cities.

LochsofScotland6

Scotland has many lochs (aka lakes). Frequently visited ones are Loch Lomond, Loch Fyne, and of course Loch Ness. Going to one of the lochs of Scotland may seem like a social gathering for tourists, but the spectacular view alone is well worth the visit. I’ve been to Loch Ness and I can only highly recommend it.
