If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably noticed that my feed has been pretty damn basic lately. I actually grammed a latte for the first time in my life… and I was proud of it! I honestly don’t even know myself anymore.
I’ve been to London several times over the years, so on this most recent visit I decided to skip the main tourist attractions and instead, spend my days standing on stranger’s porches, taking photos of their homes.
I’m obsessed with London’s Sketch restaurant, and not for the same reason as everyone else. Yes, they have an all pink tea room, and the most uniquely beautiful bathroom you’ve ever seen. But this restaurant’s social marketing tactics are next level.
Guest Post by Nick
On my most recent work trip to Europe, I chose to stay an extra day and explore London. This was only the 2nd day I’ve spent in the city, the last one being many years ago. I figured I would re-acclimate by sticking to the major sights and experiences the city has to offer.
Here are just a few more photos of Edinburgh to wrap things up:
Scot Monument. My favorite.
The birthplace of Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone.
The memorial for my favorite childhood (true) story, Greyfriar’s Bobby.
I fall for cities and Edinburgh was my first love. My grama was born here, so it’s tradition in my family to make the pilgrimage to Scotland at a very young age. It’s the most special place I’ve ever been and no matter where I travel to, I compare everywhere else to here.
Scotland is a special destination for Nick and I because it’s the first country we traveled to together. I was brought here when I was 1, and again when I was in 5th grade.
Scotland is an incredible country; the scenery is unrivaled and the history is rich, but one of the things that really makes this place what it is, is the people!! The Scottish people are the nicest, most hospitable, and genuinely helpful group of people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
Our B&B in Drumnadrochit was amazing. It was about 4 miles outside of the main village and on the very top of a hill. The views were perfection and our hosts were the nicest of people (not surprising as Scottish Hospitality is the best in the world).
