Edinburgh: The city of myths.. Part 1

IMGP0109

Visiting Scotland was always one of my greatest wishes and although we didn’t have much time to explore the countryside and the highlands, Edinburgh gave us a great taste of what this mythical and stunning land has to offer! A modern yet traditional city, full of old, grey, stone buildings and cobbled streets, Edinburgh gives you the feeling that the pride of its people is flowing into the air and that the myths of this land still dwell in its parks, the stoned buildings greened from mold and the music coming from the back pipes of the street musicians.

IMGP9242

I’ve been to Brussels 4 times in just one year , I know, crazy, right? One of my most beloved people in the world was there, that’s why! But this time it was more special, as it was the first time I actually had such super company or anyone at all to accompany me to my strols around the city, my lovely sis, that’s who!We tried the local specialties (fries, mussels, carbonnade, and many more), drank some excellent beers, did some exquisite shopping and ate awesome chocolate till we dropped! It was a delightful week (hope for my sis too, I was her guide in Brussels and in the other cities we visited). In this post i will try to take you with us on our stroll around my favourite spots in Brussels, starting from the Parc de Bruxelles, to the Place Royale, the Sablon, the Mont des Arts and the Grande Place. Oh, I guess it’s the first time I post pictures from Brussels but I have tons more to share with you. By the next time, get yourselves confused with our twin-type resemblance and try to figure out who-is-who in the pictures! Enjoy! Continue reading
