A Day out in Edinburgh: Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

A Day out in Edinburgh: Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

This comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me. Botanical gardens are my jam! Since I haven’t finished writing my posts about Edinburgh and Glasgow, I thought I’d start out with what I usually save for last! We had pretty soft winter weather while we were in Scotland and because it was not too cold and wet, we decided to discover the green beauty of Edinburgh and maybe even walk all the way down to the seaside.

Canterbury and I… it could be a love story. On Saturday morning, my alarm clock went off on an hour so painfully early, I can’t even remember what I did the first few hours I was awake. 3:15am is never a good idea.

From Westminster we took the tube down to Sloan Square to discover the shops on Kings Road. If you have a …

The London Diaries: Soho & Covent Garden

      I’m typing this post with one hand while the other is pressing a cold water compress to my badly twisted right ankle ankle, my two knee braces are supporting my swollen knees and I have a big bruise on my left shoulder. Did I fall of my bike, you ask? No, I spend three days in the wonderful city in London. Remember that awesome but stupid thing I did in early December? K and I spontaneously booked a trip to London. Neither Paris or New York could measure up to my feelings …
