In the middle of February, Ricky and I decided to go to Edinburgh for a few days together. We settled on a three night stay in the Scottish capital and we had the best time!
Our first day was spent having an all day shopping trip, so I managed to pick up a few bits from Lush, Boots, Topshop, Zara and more!
Our second day was spent at Edinburgh Zoo, where we managed to see some animals we've never saw in real life before, such as koalas, pandas and pygmy hippos. Also, I was overjoyed to see so many of my favourite animal, penguins, of course. We then went to Bella Italia at night for pizza and cocktails, which were amazing!
Our third and last day was spent wandering around the city centre and taking it all in before we headed home. We managed to squeeze in a visit to Edinburgh Castle and make a quick stop to Mary's Milk Bar for some homemade gelato. I choose salted caramel, obviously!
I absolutely loved my time in Edinburgh and I definitely want to return some day in the foreseeable future.
Have you had any mini breaks recently? Let me know in the comments!
