Last weekend, my parents came to visit me for the first time since I made the big move up to Scotland. Miraculously for a bank holiday weekend, the weather was fully cooperative and the sun shone for (almost) the entire weekend. Having never been further north than Sheffield, it was brilliant to show my parents my new home and city. We ticked a number of things of our ‘to-see’ list over the course of the weekend whilst still having time to catch up and relax together.
One of the things I love most about Edinburgh is the copious amounts of independent coffee shops. There are so many lovely places to grab a coffee to go or even better, to sit in somewhere cosy and wile away the morning people watching and getting stuck into a good old book.
