Day 9 in Edinburgh, Scotland and Holy Island of Lindisfarne, England

Our last day in Scotland has arrived. Many wonderful memories has been made in this amazing country and even a change in life status (engaged!!! read day 5 post) happened there. Despite being a little sad to bid Scotland goodbye, we were very much looking forward to our drive towards England for more wonderful adventure!

Day 8 in Edinburgh, Scotland

Day 8 in Edinburgh, Scotland

It’s been a while (more than a year…) since the last post. But that’s because of all the good things happening to both of us which kept us busy last year! *Drum roll* We bought a house and got married!!! And now we are very much settled into our new life, place and roles, so back to the grind! This is a no driving day as the city is expectedly difficult to navigate and the parking system is very confusing based on our experience the night before, where we tried to park near our stay.

The more days we spent in Scotland, the more we fell in love with Scotland. Pleased that we chose to embark on this less touristy road trip. Now leaving behind the amazing landscapes, we are ready to be charmed by the quaint little towns.

Through the glass doors in the dining area, we can see the lovely view of hares hopping around the field and horses grazing. The weather looks slightly gloomy today but that did not deter us from wanting to trek up a hill to see reindeers!!! So excited!!!

"Somewhere charming with little towns"
