So, on the 1st of May I was supposed to be flying to the other side of the world by myself to have an adventure. Instead I spent the day drinking with my best friend and falling asleep by 7pm. But I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Because he is the adventure.
And now a couple of weeks after my departure date I have moved back to Edinburgh, without a job and any sort of income. I was anxious about it for quite some time but when I thought about it, a few weeks earlier I was going to be moving across the world without a job, without any sort of income and without knowing anyone. It put things into perspective. I moved down and hoped for the best, and at this stage I am still optimistic that things will work it as there supposed to.
I am so happy being back in Edinburgh though, it is probably my favourite city in the world. For the purposes of padding out this blog post I have compiled a short list of some of the things I love about Edinburgh.
- The fact it doesn’t really feel like a city
- Lothian Buses
- The blend of old and new
- Portobello Beach
- Complaining about tourists (during August and throughout the year)
Edinburgh is so great I can’t quite put it into words but I know someone (not personally) who can:
“This is a city of shifting light, of changing skies, of sudden vistas. A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again.” – Alexander McCall Smith
So if you don’t believe me, believe my good friend Alex.
