She lives in Ireland, I live in Norway. We had been talking of London, Barcelona, Lisbon... but suddenly we were going to Edinburgh. When I landed, all I knew was the address where we were staying for the week-end. Even though I had been looking forward to this mini vacation, I had had no time whatsoever to read anything about my destination. And Edinburgh took me by surprise. And I loved every bit of it. The weather was glorious, the architecture spectacular and the Scots are among the nicest people you can meet. If you ever go to Scotland, try some Arbroath Smokie, it's delicious.
