Edinburgh update

So as promised a few more pictures from our vacation, though I'm not going to bore you with too many of them, since there is quite a few of Jonas, it was after all his first vacation.

 First a picture of some of the beautiful buildings around Edinburgh, I really loved just walking around Edinburgh, it is really a beautiful city.
 After we checked in to the hotel we set out to find lunch, and ended up getting a sandwich at a pub on Grassmarket. Afterwards we realised that very close to where we ate there were a great view of the castle, so we had to get pictures:)
 We also went up to see the castle up close, though not the first day. But since you have a baby on your hands you don't always get to spent time as you would before having a baby. So we didn't go in to see any of the displays since Jonas was starting to get tired, and were a bit loud. Though he thought it was fun looking at the canons.
 One of the days we drove up to (or maybe it's down to, I'm not quite sure) Roslyn Chapel, which is a must to see if you have read Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code". Though there were a lot of reconstruction going on, but it was still fun to see the chapel.
In order to do something fun for Jonas we went to Edinburgh Zoo, and we did get to see the giant pandas, which apparently are very expensive for them to have, since they have to import a lot of bamboo from overseas. Though Jonas wasn't too impressed with the Zoo, but we like it. It was really big, and had a lot of animals.
The next day we were at the park, and there were pigeons, and those Jonas loved... well at least he loved chasing them. So I guess we can conclude that the best things in life are free... or that you don't always have to make a big deal about things, I guess to Jonas it was more fun running around chasing pigeons that sitting in a stroller looking at caged animals, and putting it like that I can't say I blame him:)


  1. Cute photos! Looks like you guys had a very relaxing time.

  2. A colleague of mine lived in Edinburgh for a year and I couldn't get over how gorgeous it is! Looks like you had a fabulous time!

  3. I would have love the zoo too! I'm surprised that Jonas wasn't impressed with the zoo - children! ;)


Your comments makes me smile:)
