Around the world part 10 – Scotland, Edinburgh 

Wow, Edinburgh is awe inspiring. History everywhere. We are staying at a great Airbnb that’s a unesco heritage site. Built in 1725. I can’t sleep because I keep looking out the window of the flat in the wee hours imagining what it used to be like. It doesn’t require much imagination since everything looks the same.

The first shot below is where we are staying (the building on the far left). Out our front door is Princes street and the Scotish National Gallery. Out our back door is the royal mile and Edinburgh Castle.


  

This is our back door… And the cute little alley to the Royal mile.

  
  

Really cool pub decor. Too many to post but here’s a quick snap of the ceiling of one where we had the best sticky toffee pudding.
  

Worked off some of the pudding and beer by climbing over 200 steps of the Scott Monument.

  
  

 


Sampled some Scotch at the Scotch Museum and determined I’m an Islay fan (I suspected as much), and then walked up to the castle.  

  


Tomorrow we take the train out to St. Andrews.

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
