Happy St Andrew's Day

30 November 2011


It's a truly festive atmosphere in Edinburgh - the German market is up and running, feeding the tourists and the locals alike with waffles and hot chocolates, offering mulled wine and Ferris wheel rides. We didn't have any snow yet, but hopefully we'll get some before Christmas. For now, let's celebrate St Andrew's Day and everything that's Scottish!

and here is a list of the things you do when you're Scottish .

Hope you had a good day!


A day in pictures

That was such a long time ago. The Autumn is long gone, and the Christmas market has already opened in Edinburgh. It was a crisp and sunny day, a perfect day for a walk. And that's just what I did.

Look what has arrived in Edinburgh...

Yep, it's a Christmas tree -  right in the west end of Princess Street. It looks rather sad just now, to be honest, but I'm sure not for much longer.

100th post

5 November 2011


It's hard to believe we've reached the 100th post since we started this blog. I have to say it became a bit of an addiction for both of us; it encouraged us to take lots of pictures and never leave home without a camera to document our life more regularly, which is exactly why we started blogging in the first place. Thank you for sticking with us for the past 4 months !  I'm not sure in which direction this blog will go, for how much longer we'll be living in Edinburgh or what surprises life will bring to us, but the past 100 posts were so much fun there is no way we're giving it up !

Here are the 10 posts you seemed to enjoy the most:

  1.  Our 6th anniversary 
  2. Travel diary: Fuerteventura
  3. In search of 44 Scotland Street
  4.  Seen through the artist's eyes
  5.  Mini home tour
  6. IKEA RAST hack
  7.  Tiny landscape in a coffee cup
  8.  The sunniest day ever
  9.  My commute
  10.  A few snapshots from my birthday


Happy 100th post to us!
Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
