Final countdown and sunshine

I leave Edinburgh today in a month!
So crazy, can’t believe how fast the last three years have gone by.
But it feels good to be going home, after 7 years of living abroad I’m looking forward to living in Zürich for more than a summer.

I will definitely miss the days that Edinburgh is flooded with sunlight, the winds disappear and everyone is out and about.
I love all the coffee shops here that not only serve good coffee but usually great food too.
And of course the student life.
Soon it’s off into the ‘real’ world (whatever that means).

Last week when it was spring for two days V and I took a stroll to Bruntsfield and tried to soak up as much sun as we could.Bruntsfield, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraAll the daffodils had bloomed and the sea of yellow was so beautiful.

At Real Foods I discovered the best alternative to dairy ice cream.
It’s made using a unique process which combines cashews, agave syrup and pure water from reverse osmosis.
If that isn’t cool, I don’t know what is.
It is also one of the first dairy free, soya free, gluten free, organic and mostly raw ‘ice cream’ that tastes almost like the real thing.
I was so impressed!
Hoping they have something similar in Switzerland.Bruntsfield, Edinburgh // L.AlexandraDue to my milk allergy I can’t have much dairy ice cream which sucks because they taste so much better than sorbets or ice lollies.
If you’re in the same boat as me or just wanting to try something new I highly recommend trying Booja-Booja ice cream.Bruntsfield, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra

We also visited the oldest charity shop in Edinburgh, which called for a selfie.

We also visited a liquor store in Bruntsfield.
They’ve always really fascinated me.
Seeing all the different wines and spirits.
Would be so cool to know about them all!Bruntsfield, Edinburgh // L.Alexandra

And this was the view on our walk back through the Meadows.

Edinburgh: give us more days like this!
