Continuing in the same vein as yesterday, boatloads of photos with friends! This time, Chrissy (of Mexico fame) came to see me, and I showed her all around Edinburgh:
Before we headed down to London, going to see…Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!
It was excellent, as you would expect. Katie and Shuaib flew down from Edinburgh for the weekend as well, and we all had a blast at the show.
Of course, we went and saw all the good touristy bits too:
Chrissy and I then went to see an interactive version of The Great Gatsby, in which she was hit on by one of the main characters (Tom Buchanan, the sly dog) and I chased after her in heels to save her virtue. I’m such a good friend.
We also got to stand in as background scenery simply because we were so good looking. True story.
I love getting to see all these people that I care about, because while travel is amazing and fun, it’s the people you love who make all the difference.
Now, it may come as a surprise to you all (and most definitely to me), but I’ve actually managed to acquire quite a few friends, despite the fact that I’m bouncing all over. It must be all my witty charm. Or my lounge access. (I’m looking at you, Shuaib). In either case, I spend a lot of time being social and hanging out with some really great people.
As I mentioned before, my friend Katie came all the way up from Brighton in late to November to visit for the weekend. We had an excellent time, and you all will be pleased to know that I’ve acquired a membership the the Historic Scottish Monument society, simply because I’ve visited the castle approximately 1,000 times since arriving.
We also spent a ton of time at Camera Obscura, taking a boatload of photos and being silly.
And obviously, we went to the Christmas markets, because duh it’s Edinburgh, they’re great!
