Stop #2 on our last trip to Europe was Edinburgh, Scotland. I had heard great things about Scotland, but had never visited myself, so I was very excited. Lucky for me the city did not disappoint, as Edinburgh was the highlight of my trip!
It’s already been just over a month since we got back from our most recent European vacation. Life has been busy, so it’s taken me longer than I’d prefer to get around to posting!
As promised, I wanted to share some photos, reviews, and tips of the places we went. Naturally I’m starting with London since that was the first and last city we visited. Although we didn’t stay in London for very long, we were still able to see most of the main tourist sites and then some.
Hi all! Sorry for the month-delay in posting – I’ve been busy, busy, busy since returning from our backpacking trip, which was amazing by the way! I was able to post some photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, so be sure to follow us if you’re not already!
During this trip we visited London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Dublin. I had previously visited London way back in 2003 and Dublin in 2008, so long enough to still see each city through new eyes.
If you’re thinking about taking a backpacking trip to any of these places, I recommend seeing them all, and then some! But if you’re limited on time and can only pick one or two, I thought it might help to rank them by my overall favorites:
In the meantime, I wanted to share our itinerary so you can see how long we’ll be staying in each location and how we plan on getting around. This is a great example of how you can plan the important details ahead of time, but still leave lots of open time to be spontaneous while you’re there.
