Where can you see a Palace and a Castle in one day? The incredible city of Edinburgh…

Holyrood

Holyrood.20171005_132519  A working palace, a palace of old and new, well mostly old but the current (new) monarchy use this Palace when in Scotland.  It is truly a beautiful Palace.  The history, like all the castles and palaces in Scotland, are simply incredible to me, either ruin or ones that still host Royalty, I think they are all so unique and astounding.  

I went there in 2016 and posted about previously.  Check out my older post on Holyrood Palace   It is definitely one to see, especially if you love old Palaces and beautiful gardens.  The gardens are so beautiful there,20171005_133241 especially in the Spring and Summer. 20171005_133710

Edinburgh Castle

My first visit here was in 2016.  Please read about my first experience here.   I love coming here.  I have been here twice now and once for the Tattoo.   It is truly amazing!  Paula and I met a really sweet young lady visiting by herself that day, Miss Victoria was our buddy for the day and we even had dinner with her after all of the walkings!.  We are still buddy’s today!

It was just as magnificent as it was the first time for me and I will go back as many times as I can.  My goal is to go to Scotland until I physically can’t.  I hope that is a really long time.  Walking down the Royal Mile right outside of the Castle we saw this place!   I must eat there next time I go!

After our long day of walking and exploring, we found some good food to eat at Milnes Bar in Edinburgh.  Paula, Victoria and I shared our adventures over a good pint and warm food in our bellies.

We headed back by bus later that night.  It was a full moon that night and at the carpark, I tried our best to get a picture of the full moon, it was mesmerizing!  I need a better camera for that, I used my Samsung Galaxy 8 plus.  Not bad Samsung!
