24 Hours in Edinburgh

As you guys might have seen my previous post, for about two weeks ago, I was actually in Edinburgh visiting Cynthia. I got a little crazy on my furniture hunt, so all I could squeeze in my schedule was one night. The train was about 5 hours long, which is pretty tiring, specially when you're travelling back, however, my 24 hours in Edinburgh made the exhausting journey worth it!

I got some time to briefly explore the Old Town area, and enjoy the super delicious milk ice cream from Mary's Milk Bar (it is seriously so yummy in a level that by far no other ice cream can reach, I'll probably travel there again just for a scoop haha!) . I had the most amazing time, every corner was just so picture-ready, I absolutely loved it. I'll leave you guys to my photo diary for now, hopefully I'll get to visit there again, and share more interesting stories with you all. 

愛丁堡,短短24小時的快速過境,卻在最快的時間成為我喜愛的城市之一。倫敦到愛丁堡,需要搭上將近五小時的火車,本來預計要在火車上整理照片和文字的,但因為車程比想像中晃,看了十五分鐘的螢幕頭就開始發暈便作罷;不過放下工作,欣賞著窗外的鄉下風情,提早幾個小時條把自己調整的旅遊模式,倒也挺好的。不算大的市區,花上點時間到處走走,就能夠把熱鬧的區域逛完。隨處可見的古典建築,讓人一踏出飯店就情不自禁地愛上,立刻告訴自己「下次一定要多安排點時間再來」。漫步古色古香的街道上,專注地盯著每個街角,耳邊還傳來好應景的風笛聲,嘴角也跟著音樂上揚;我想,以後離開忙碌的倫敦,偶而來這裡走走似乎是個不錯的選擇。

這次到愛丁堡,有很好的朋友當導遊,嚐到了不少屬於當地人的口袋名單。從下午茶、日本菜(咦?),還有好吃到讓人融化的冰淇淋,每一個美食好像都在催促著我趕快再造訪一次!晚上也沒有特別安排,兩個女孩子,在寬敞的客廳,吃著巧克力,小酌一杯,是我自從離開澳洲求學生涯中,就鮮少體驗到的屬於我們女生的小聚會。也或許是因為有知音的陪伴,這趟小旅行真的是再完美不過了。如果說,倫敦是個摩登時尚的獨立女子,那麼愛丁堡便是可愛溫暖的慈祥老奶奶,等著你來訪,給你最溫潤的照顧和擁抱。
