{Travel} Day/Night 2 Edinburgh Castle & Greyfriar's Kirkyard

Our first full day in Edinburgh and we were excited to see the city.   College Girl was arriving the next day so we took a quick look around and tried our best to stay awake and get used to the new time zone.  If you missed Day 1, you can find it here.
 We strolled up to Edinburgh Castle from our flat. It's so impressive up close!
 The view is no less stunning from the castle.
We explored Princes Street Park and a bit of Princes Street (shopping area) in New Town as well.
 We went to Palm Paradise for a late lunch/early dinner.
 The food was by Lucky Pig and we tried three of their vegan options.
We stopped by the most famous statue in Edinburgh-Greyfriar's Bobby.  It's said to be good luck to rub his nose.  
He's a Skye Terrier that stood guard over his owner's grave for 14 years.
It was Halloween so where else should we visit but a creepy ancient cemetery?



Greyfriar's Kirkyard is the graveyard that surrounds Greyfriar's Kirk and it's been around since the 16th century.


 The sun went down pretty early and we got out of there before it got too dark.
 A warm cappuccino was a welcome treat on a chilly night.
 Here are a few more pictures from our first day in Edinburgh.





We went out to a wine bar to keep ourselves awake as long as possible but we only made it until about 10pm!
Tired Americans at the wine bar!

I do not know why it is, but the cappuccinos are just always better across the pond! Looks so enchanting, loving your recaps and I bet you’ve loved reliving them. Happy Friday cutie!
