I knew that this month was going to be mental. It was going to be a month filled with travel, fun and emotions. I was not wrong! August was absolutely incredible and super busy! The main thing being my holiday to Scotland with my partner and his parents. Here is August 2017 wrap up!
One of the main vocal points for me during my Scotland holiday was my partners mother and father finally meeting my family. We have been together for nearly 3 years. This trip would be the first official “real life” meeting. Most people would feel nervous about this, however I felt super excited! This blog talks about all of the Family meetings!
I warn you in advance, this is one of the LONGEST blogs I have written. However, I felt the need to write so much because it’s about my family and friends. I love them so much and feel the need to write from the heart more than writing from my head.
As a Scottish person, I feel ashamed to say that I have never attended the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Don’t get me wrong, I have wanted to for a long time. But sadly either time was not on my side or the price was too high. In order to go to the Tattoo, you NEED to book several months in advance. Since I knew that my partner and his parents wanted to go and see it, I made sure I did just this. I booked not only for our group, but also for my mother and father. Finally I would be experiencing the Edinburgh Military Tattoo!
During the festival, everything goes up in price. That includes the prices for hotels. If we were to stay in a hotel for 1 week, it would have been about £2k a pop, for 2 PEOPLE! Absolute madness. However, I looked up several places to stay through Edinburgh Airbnb. I have used this website on several occasions and have never been disappointed.
At the end of each stay, it is normal to write a review of your stay. So why not a blog about it? Here is my Edinburgh Airbnb review!
