After almost two and a half years together, for Christmas 2018 my partner and I travelled to my home in the UK and I finally introduced him to the family in person. After a whirlwind couple of weeks with lots of introductions, Kevin and I decided to book a little getaway to Edinburgh, Scotland.
Having lived in England for all of my life, it's a surprise I hadn't made it to Scotland sooner, this becomes even more apparent when I think about having left three years prior to begin my travels thousands of miles away in New Zealand, a country often closely compared to Scotland.
Kevin and I had a wonderful couple of days exploring Edinburgh and walking the historical streets until we could no longer feel our legs. The history and old architecture is fascinating and makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. Kevin was also very insistent that he visited a real life castle (Canadians just don't know the meaning of old :) ) before we left the UK, so of course we ticked that of the bucket list too.
Don't wait as long as I did to experience this country, we can't wait to come back for more!
