Magical Country and Literary City

Using our Easter holidays for a short city trip, we went to Edinburg for a few days.

Having grown up in a medieval town myself, I still wonder how these historical places resemble each other.

You will find narrow alleys and stairways, beautiful cathedrals, combining Romanesque and Gothic architecture, as well as a castle on a hill serving as the landmark of the city.

As a booklover I was especially impressed how literature and writers have influenced the city – there are not too many cities where you find a museum dedicated to the country’s most famous writers as well as a station named after a novel…

Unfortunately we only had one day to visit the countryside, the untamed nature around the beautiful Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, but I am quite sure that this was not our last visit to this beautiful country…
