I’ve been across the globe, from South Africa to Ireland, and a bunch of pin drops in between, but no venture compares to the three days I spent in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was my first solo trip and almost nothing went according to plan. But somehow I managed to see everything on my list and even made a few unexpected sides trips, complete with surprising new friendships and a plethora of unnecessary facts about the long-held Scottish/English feud. Sorry, Majesty. I side with the Scots.
