Let's discover Scotland together! :D First things first - I am planning to go on this trip beginnings of November: Friday - Monday night (this way we don't loose too many days of work). We will explore the ancient walls of Edinburgh Castle, wander the enchanting Royal Mile, and savor the Scotch Whisky Experience. We will immerse ourselves in history at Holyroodhouse and step aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia. Feel the pulse of Glasgow's vibrant streets, marvel at its stunning cathedral, and indulge in delicious cuisine. From captivating museums to breath-taking views, this journey promises excitement, laughter, and cherished memories that will stay with you long after the trip ends! πŸŽ‰βœ¨πŸ°πŸ₯ƒπŸ΄σ §σ ’󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Let's go! Edinburgh and Glasgow are waiting for us! I am sure it will be an unforgettable experience! Or at least, we will make it unforgettable 😍

About me and expectations from this adventure: I have been to Edinburgh only once in February and since I felt in love with it, I have planned this trip to take you with me through its wonders! Its medieval look captivated me back in February when I first visited it and I can't wait to show it to you as well. Since it's gonna be pretty cold in October/ November time, I suggest we get some whisky or hot chocolate while exploring the cities! πŸ΄σ §σ ’σ ³σ £σ ΄σ Ώβ„οΈπŸ₯ƒ I am a fast walker, probably due to the fact that living in London, only allows me to walk a marathon every time I need to go from place A to place B LOL. Having said that, I truly appreciate making the most of every holiday - long weekends! While I love getting lost in the streets and discover unknown places, I'm also determined not to miss any attractions/ spots. If you share my same enthusiasm for discovering hidden gems without wasting time, you're the perfect companion for this adventure! πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈπŸ’¨β°βš‘οΈ

Where will we stay? Planning a trip of 3 (including me). I suggest we consider a shared apartment option as the primary choice. This way, we can all stay together, share common spaces, and enjoy a cozy and home-like atmosphere. It'll be a good opportunity to bond and know each other a bit better. However, since I understand everyone has different needs, I will try to accommodate everyone who wishes to stay in a private room :)
