It has been two weeks since the start of our project at CVG Northampton. While the project has been exciting, we have also been eagerly looking forward to the weekends. This weekend we decided to visit Edinburgh. The problem, however, was deciding how to get there – take a train or a flight. In the end we decided to drive up the coastline until we reached Scotland!
On hindsight, it was the best decision ever! The landscape was picturesque to say the least and was interspersed by quick peeks of the ocean. In fact, if one watches eagerly, one can actually notice subtle differences between the landscape and view of the English countryside and the Scottish ones. My opinion – Scottish ones are way better!
The names of the places were also really strange, and we had a good laugh about them. Longframelington, Alnmouth Shilbottle, Eyemouth and a few others really amused us. Also, every fifteen minutes Nishant would ask, “How long until we get there?” In fact, one time he thought we had been driving for at least an hour and half when it had only been 20 minutes! With such long road trips (seven hours) it is important to find laughter in the small things!
Once we reached Edinburgh, it was everything that we had hoped for and more! I have no doubts in my mind that Edinburgh is my favorite of all cities that I have ever visited.
