I’ve been to Scotland a few times before; I’ve been up and down it, stayed in cities and tiny country villages. I’ve seen its lakes, it’s castles, and it’s highlands.
I’ve seen it all, and I’ve loved it all. But there is one place I’ve loved more than all the others, from the second I set eyes on it for the first time, over five years ago now.
Edinburgh. I’m obsessed with this city; I’m in love with it. I want to spend all my time here. It’s just one of those places that you feel instantly at home in. Even though I don’t really know where I’m going when I’m there (although now I kind of do), I have never worried, I have never felt scared or out of my element. I have just always felt at home.
I could sing its praises a million times over, but you’ll never really understand unless you see it for yourself. And even then I can’t promise you’ll get it. But I hope you try.
Maybe you have your own place that makes you feel as happy and secure as this place makes me feel. I hope for your sake that you do. It’s something everyone deserves. I was just there two days ago and I miss it already. I can’t wait to go back, probably in another few years.
