Travel Tuesday: Edinburgh, Scotland

I must confess I have a huge travel crush on Edinburgh.  It's hard to put into words why I love this city.  Maybe it's the mix of Gothic and Georgian architecture, the Royal Mile flanked on each end by a castle, or the friendly Scots that are more than happy to help you find your way around their city.  Everywhere you look, there is a winding alley to follow, a dark close to explore, you can even find an underground city here.  Or maybe it's just the whisky.  If I could teleport myself anywhere today, I'd pick the Princes Street Gardens.  This city center park has lush green grass, beautiful flowers and a breathtaking view of Edinburgh Castle.  I particularly love the Scott Monument, in all its Gothic glory.  Look close and you can even see the Balmoral Hotel in the distance.  Next time I'm in Edinburgh, I plan to climb to the top of the Scott Monument.  You can find out more about the monument here.
