Day two was probably my favourite day of this short break. Mainly because we went to the National Museum of Scotland. I’ve been so so excited to visit this place. I have read about all of the different section online (because I just can’t help myself) and it looked absolutely amazing.
This museum really did not disappoint. Not only were the exhibits gorgeous and really interactive but I ended up learning a fair bit a long the way. For the bloggers out there that are reading this, there are some really photogenic places to get pictures for Instagram and blog posts as well. I felt like a little kid again when I was walking around all of the exhibits. There was just so much to see and take in.
We really took our times going around all of the exhibits and I’m glad that we did. There were things on robotics, which I took an obvious interest in, DNA, chemistry, transport, fashion. It’s a museum people will be able to find at least one exhibit that they’re interested in. I loved the space part of the museum, it was so aesthetically pleasing and was just a more peaceful place to go and see, in my opinion. Sadly, the rooftop terrace was closed the day that we went but if we head to Edinburgh again, that’s definitely one place that I was to go and see.
This was also the day that Edinburgh seemed to be absolutely freezing, tipping down and I could not feel my hands or face. However, for some reason, we still decided to take a walk around Victoria Street and the Royal Mile and it was completely worth it. One of the other highlights of this day was popping into The Boy Wizard which is a brand new Harry Potter merchandise shop that’s opened on Victoria Street. It was amazing and I’m a sucker for anything that’s related to Harry Potter. I did end up buying a really cute bag from there which you can see in my Edinburgh haul video!
Our third day was pretty empty since we didn’t have very much planned. By that point, we were so shattered and just waiting for our flight back home. In the end we ended up just taking a walk back up Princes Street and Grassmarket to see the Vennel and have another look at the gorgeous architecture that the city held.
However, we couldn’t leave Edinburgh without heading to the Chocolate Lounge of the fourth floor of Harvey Nichols. And let me tell you, that was absolute heaven. I ended up getting the individual fondue and I just didn’t want it to end. It was the perfect end note to the trip.
As amazing as this trip was, I know for a fact that I wouldn’t have been half as wonderful without my sister. She’s my absolute favourite person to travel with and I can’t wait to tell you guys about our other two trips this year.
