Nå har det blitt en lang pause i min bloggaktivitet. Ingen dramatikk, noen ganger bare rusler og går livet sin gang. Da er det jo fint å starte opp igjen med reisereportasje! I september var min kjære og jeg på en veldig fin tur til Edinburgh. Jeg har vært der 3 ganger tidligere, men det var første gang min kjære var med. Av helsemessige grunner har han ikke vært på langtur på mange år, så det var flott at han kunne dra på tur nå. Jeg synes Edinburgh er en av de flotteste byene å besøke, og han ble like begeistret. Vi bodde veldig sentralt i Cockburn Street. Det er gaten alle går fra jernbaneområdet i New Town til Royal Mile i Old Town. Leiligheten vi bodde i lå to etasjer ned fra gateplan, og mot bakgården, så der var det helt stille, selv om det var et yrende liv i Cockburn Street. Det var bare et par minutter å gå opp til Royal Mile. Så alt var innen kort gangavstand.
Now there has been a long break in my blogging activity. No drama, sometimes life just strolls by. Then it's nice to start again with a travel report! In September, my darling and I went on a very nice trip to Edinburgh. I have been there 3 times before, but it was the first time my loved one was there. For health reasons, he hasn't been on a long trip for many years, so it was great that he could go on a trip now. I think Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities to visit and he was excited too. We stayed very centrally in Cockburn Street. It's the street everyone walks from the railway area in the New Town to the Royal Mile in the Old Town. The flat we lived in was two floors down from street level, and towards the back yard, so it was completely quiet there, even though there was a bustle of life in Cockburn Street. It was only a couple of minutes walk up to the Royal Mile. So everything was within a short walking distance, which was important to us.
St. Giles katedralen er vakker med alle sine fargerike glassmalerier. St. Giles Cathedral is beautiful with all its colorful stained glass windows.
This is the Writers' Museum. It was so nice with the sign and the blue sky in the background 😊
And of course, it's not Edinburgh without a bagpiper!
I also find it fascinating with all the narrow passages with stairs between the new and old town. This is Fleshmarket Close, just above where we stayed. I counted that there were five levels with shop/restaurant entrances on the way down all the stairs.
