One day trip to Linlithgow from Edinburgh

Me and my friends wanted to go on a day trip from Edinburgh. Apart from Glasgow we also chose Linlithgow. Linlithgow is a town some 30 kms west of Edinburgh so it’s very quick to get there by train. The main attraction is the Linlithgow Palace, once a home of the noble Stuarts and the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots, now ruined.

Speechless in Scotland

After coming back from Portugal and Madrid I had exactly half a day to pack my things for another adventure. I went to Scotland with my friends for a couple of days. It was my second time in Scotland. It’s one of my favourite countries and always has been. Why do I love it so much? Beautiful nature, old castles, bagpipes, redheads, tartan, the accent…I love the accent, even though it’s hard to understand sometimes 馃榾

Okay, so do you remember how sick I was in Madrid? I was feeling way better at home but the next day I lost my voice 馃槮 We travelled with my friend from Bratislava to Edinburgh via London. We had to wait around 6 hours for our plane at Stansted (another friend joined us there) and I slowly started to lose my voice. This is becoming quite a ritual every summer now when I’m sick :/ I slowly started to lose my voice at the airport so I was trying not to speak very loud or at all. I went to a pharmacy to buy some pills that would help. I don’t really remember when I could properly speak again but I guess on the third day everything was already okay.
