How I spent 48 hours in Edinburgh

After 2 caffeinated days in London it was time for the next half of our 5 year wedding anniversary celebration: Edinburgh.

Virgin Trains took us along the scenic route. Free wifi came in handy for the parts that weren’t so scenic. Four hours later we arrived in one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to.

We Uber’d the 10 minutes to our hotel. Booking.com came through for us on this one. The welcome was warm. The check-in swift. The room luxurious. More about this hotel in another blog post.

As was the case in London, and for the same reason, I only visited 4 speciality coffee shops in my 2 days in Edinburgh. Here’s how I spent my time…

My thoughts overall

There’s a caption I normally add to my photos on my Instagram page when I run out of witty banter. “Coffee spaces are my favorite kind”. Edinburgh didn’t disappoint. Exposed brick. Herringbone floors. Friendly faces. Excellent coffee.

My top tips

  1. For some of the best Indian food you’ll ever have, at very reasonable prices, visit Mother India. They serve Indian tapas that taste like friendship.
  2. If you’re in the mood for fish & chips, it has to be the Tailend Restaurant & Fish Bar.
  3. Leave the city and take the train to North Berwick. It defines the quaint seaside town (see the photos below). Pop in to Steampunk Coffee Roasters. Say hi to Ernie. I’ll tell you more about him soon – he deserves a separate blog post.
