For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved getting away from home. Even as a child, I would spend my holidays in the countryside or head to my grans. Once, I got a little older and could venture out on my own – I’d spend my time wanderlusting and planning trips that may or may not happen. However, in the last couple of months, I’ve started to realise that my own country is pretty awesome too. You could say I’m learning to love home.
For those who don’t know, I’m from Edinburgh, Scotland. I’ve never realised how fortunate I am to live here. Not only do I have the buzz of the city on my doorstep, I have miles of countryside less that a ten minute drive away and a glorious beach to wander.
So why have I always taken it for granted? It’s pretty easy to figure it out. We’re missing out the happy factor. That big ball of fire in the sky. Without the sun, we miss out on the frozen cocktails on the beach, the bikinis and of course, the delightful palm trees. But does no sun mean no fun?!
No, of course not and that’s what I’ve been trying to figure out. For the last couple of months, I’ve been searching for beautiful, unique and fun places around Scotland. In Particular around Edinburgh. The realisation that where you live is wonderful is freeing. Wherever I go, I see things with new eyes.
I’ve almost taken a silent vow to show the world through my blog how fabulous Scotland is even if I was the only one that didn’t see it so keep your eyes pealed as there is a whole lotta Scottish Wanderlust coming your way.
