Another picture-less post. Sorry guys — photography is prohibited at this museum due to the display of human tissue.
The outing to the Surgeons’ Hall Museums in Edinburgh was a solo trip for me — the Bestie was not interested in seeing cut up human tissue or medical equipment, so she instead went shopping. See the museum’s website here. Continue reading “Surgeons’ Hall Museums”
Sorry folks, no pictures for this one. First thing to know about this tour — no pictures allowed. You’ll be touring underneath government buildings, which is why they also “closed the close” in the first place and why pictures are only limited to the optional one at the end that the company takes for you.
If you’re interested in a historical tour of underground Edinburgh that isn’t too spooky, keep reading. Continue reading “The Real Mary King’s Close Tour”
One of the things that pops up when you Google “things to do in Edinburgh” is Arthur’s Seat. Contrary to what the name implies, there is no seat and no one named Arthur to greet you when you get there. It’s a hike to probably the highest point in Edinburgh, but you are rewarded with a beautiful view of the city. Continue reading “Arthur’s seat”
Not a wonderful featured image, but this tour was at night and it’s hard to take pictures at night if you don’t know what you’re doing (i.e. ME). Text post about this Edinburgh tour — read if you dare. Continue reading “Edinburgh Underground Ghost Tour”
The Bestie and I took a late flight out of Paris (seated next to a questionable emergency exit door) and woke in the morning ready to explore Edinburgh. Our first stop — Edinburgh Castle. Continue reading “Edinburgh Castle”
Another day trip out of the city of Paris. The Bestie and I hopped on an RER C train to head to the Palace of Versailles. Fair warning: the RER station is walking distance to the palace, but make sure you have a good map or at least follow the right group of people because it’s easy to get lost in the town amidst all the other commuters. You also have the option of booking a tour with a group and taking a coach to the palace, but the Bestie and I are independent women (and a tad on the cheap side), so we opted to take the train. Continue reading “Palace of Versailles”
Disneyland Paris wasn’t on our original list of stops on our European vacation, but once the Bestie found out we would be visiting during their 25th anniversary, we decided to add a day to our Paris time and explore our third Disney park. Continue reading “Disneyland Paris”
