Travel

My Husband and I love to travel. Tommy travels a lot for his work and at times I am able to join him. We also travel for pleasure. Here are some of our travels. 

Europe Trip -- Dec '13 - Jan '14

Us Inside the Edinburgh Castle

 

The View Through the Cannon Hole 

 

The Cannon 

Inside Edinburgh Castle 

 

Edinburgh Castle

 

Built in 12th century, it still stands tall and proud above the entire city. Our visit coincided with the storm that went through UK and so it was cold, wet and very windy and felt very authentic to what I imagined it would be feel like to be in the castle in the old times during the winter – freezing J

Forgive my hair. As the winds were reaching 80-100 mph it was getting hard to walk against it, and on the top of the hill where the castle stands the winds were felt even more so than anywhere else. The views were breath taking!

Traditional Scottish Breakfast

 

After all of the attempts to find breakfast we finally found it around 9 a.m. in a small family owned café, which coincidently was right next to the hostel where my Hubby stayed when he visited Scotland 15 or 16 years ago. He did not remember the streets but we accidently ended up there.

 

Haggis is missing from this traditional combination and also many places offer fire-roasted tomatoes and cooked beans. But the sausage, mushrooms and black pudding, or blood pudding, which is what it is made out of, are all traditional Scottish breakfast foods. I found this interesting piece of information when we were leaving Scotland, my Hubby did not wanted to spoil it for me, which I much appreciate, since I loved it but would have most likely not tried it if I knew what it was. After the hard travel ( I do not fly well and the cross Atlantic flight was definitely beyond trying, both for me and my poor Hubby, who had to deal with me being pretty much unconscious after each flight) and in general my love for large breakfasts, I was in heaven having so much food in the morning. The coffee was also absolutely delicious. I never enjoyed coffee we get served here in the U.S. (it is always bitter, to me) and now after trying the naturally sweet Italian coffee I definitely want nothing else.

 

As we filled our tummies with all this delicious food, we continued climbing up the Cockburn Street up to the Royal Mile to see the Edinburgh Castle. 

FIRST STOP - EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND

 

 

Happily skipping in beautiful Edinburgh. It was after 8 a.m. and it was still so very dark. On the first day we thought something was wrong with our watch and phone because it was so dark so late. This was the beginning of our explorations, as we went through the city looking for a place to eat breakfast and found that most places were closed despite the fact that the hours posted on the door were 7 or 8 am. And it was well past 8 when we were knocking. But as one restaurant owner explained, people must have had too much to drink the night before and were sleeping it off. This was our first introduction to the relaxed European culture. There were many more to come J (such as buses not coming for an hour or so, places randomly closed or hotel that employees of which left before we could get our keys to enter it) But we were very lucky, and even with the hotel had other guests randomly walking by it when we needed to enter and letting us in. The whole trip was amazing. We saw a lot of beautiful art, architecture, culture, wonderful people and amazing foods.
