edinburgh to-do list

I already have a Scottish bucket list, but since I’m home in Edinburgh now – I just thought it was appropriate to share a list of things I really want to do in this amazing city (and it might also include a few things to do on the outskirts as well!)! And we shall see the evolution of it together!

This list will be up under the ‘bucket lists’ button in my menu bar – along with my Scottish bucket list and my 30 before 30 list! Yay lists! Also, from now on, Wednesday will be known as my Bucket List Day – hopefully every week I will be able to achieve at least one of these (or from my Scottish bucket list) and share it with you guys!

If you’ve ever been to Edinburgh, lived in Scotland, anything, and have any suggestions for me, I would gladly take them! I’m trying to think a bit outside the box, as well as trying to see the more ‘obvious’ sights of the city!xx
