Today, I will take you over the Pond to Edinburgh, Capital city of Scotland.
It is the second most visited tourist destination in the United Kingdom after London and according to a 2009 poll, Edinburgh was voted the “most desirable city in which to live in the UK”.
The city is also affectionately nicknamed Auld Reekie (Scots for Old Smoky), because when buildings were heated by coal and wood fires, chimneys would spew thick columns of smoke into the air.
These are pictures from my birthday trip to Edinburgh in March of 2008.
Enjoy and have the “Bestest Day”!
