Edinburgh

While working as a nanny, I got to travel to the beautiful, historic, pedestrian-friendly city of Edinburgh, Scotland. I absolutely loved it, but due to technical difficulties, I didn’t get many photos. I did, however, developed an appreciation for exploring with a sketch book and thoroughly enjoyed really paying attention to what I was seeing. Also, the gaps in memory that I wasn’t able to capture with pen can largely be filled with the help of Google images. So I’m not too torn up about it.
