It is time to say good-bye to Edinburgh, but hopefully we´ll meet again soon! Pretty, pretty soon please!
On my last afternoon I met Darina at Holyrood Palace, originally from Prague she studied in Edinburgh and after being in Barcelona, Malta and back home in Prague, Darina came back to Edinburgh. And told me about this amazing train ride just like Harry Potter going to Hogwarts – it is definitely on my ever growing bucketlist
Until then enjoy some portraits of Darina from Arthur´s Seat to a secret garden..
Edinburgh January 2017
If you´ve seen one picture from Edinburgh it might have been a similar one to this one – Victoria Street seems to be one of the most photographed areas of Edinburgh. It´s curve and colourful shops are just so pittoresque and pictureperfect!
Victoria Street was built between 1829-34 as part of a series of improvements to the Old Town, with the aim of improving access around the city. Previously, access from the Grassmarket to the Lawnmarket was via the West Bow, a very steeply sloped and narrow lane. The new street was planned to demolish much of the old West Bow, and provide a broad sweeping link to the newly built George IV Bridge. (Victoria Street)
View up Victoria Street, and yes there is another street on top of the colourful houses.
Around the corner on Grassmarket.
