Looking For An Edinburgh Travel Guide? Here Are Our Tips!

Planning a trip to explore Edinburgh? Great idea! The Scottish capital city has some incredible sights to explore, natural beauty to enjoy, and places to indulge in food and many, many drinks!

If you didn’t know already, Edinburgh is a city that we know and love. This is because it’s the city that brought us together.

Long story short, Lisa was doing an internship and Eric was living in Edinburgh completing his Master’s degree. It took a love of photography – and a bit of luck – but years later we have been together ever since.

Having said that, we like to think we know Edinburgh. We’ve been back to visit numerous times over the years (both together and solo) and been lucky enough to keep on discovering new places to check out each time we visit.

So, what better way to showcase your knowledge about a city than to share it with those looking for it!
