Exploring Edinburgh Part 1

As I write this I am lying in bed exhausted from this past week.
My friend from back home came to visit me for a few days in Edinburgh and then we spent the weekend together in London.

We took way too many photos so I’m doing this week in parts.
Part 1 includes our dinner at Bar Kohl and the next day wandering around Edinburgh and dinner at Bar Soba. It’s always fun having someone visit as you get to play tourist in your own city.
It was such a shame though that the weather was very grey and dreary the whole time she was here.Bar Kohl, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra

So happy you came to visit!
I had the best time <3

We went back a few days later and climbed it.
And let me tell you, the views were stunning!The Scott Monument, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraEdinburgh // L.AlexandraWe had dinner at Bar Soba that night which was good but didn’t blow us away.
Luckily they do a 50% off food deal for students during the week.Bar Soba, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra Bar Soba, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraBar Soba, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra Bar Soba, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraAfter dinner we headed over to Hannover 99 where we decided it was a great idea to get a bottle of prosecco.
Or two.
‘Cause you know, we can?
Didn’t seem like such a great idea the next day -.-
