It seems like no matter where you go, there is some enormous castle hiding behind the next turn. It is so pretty here, I still walk around like a tourist with my camera, taking pictures of every single building. We had some nice days now with sun and that great autumn air, which is perfect for taking lang walks and exploring the city even more.
I moved this week to a self catered accommodation and got four amazing flat mates! So happy right now, this was what I wanted the whole time. I can finally make my own food and eat whenever I want!

Yesterday was such an amazing day. The weather was so nice with just the right temperature as well, in other words: a perfect go-for-a-walk-with-my-camera-day! Since I’m still at Pollock Halls I thought I’d check out the enormous chain of mountains that I look at every day from my room: Arthur’s seat. This is the remains of an extinct volcano, which is kind of cool.
This was such a nice walk, I enjoyed every second of it. It’s not a hard climb at all, the mountain itself is no more than 250 m in height, and there are so many paths to follow. But if you want to advance it a bit, you can always do what I did and walk everywhere else than where the paths went. It was really windy at the top, which made my self-portrait shoot a bit hard when I tried to use the timer. I looked like a crazy person running from the camera and over to the place where I put the focus. Almost tripped once, that gave me a near death-experience-feeling when looking down the steep hill.
It seems like autumn is finally arriving. I can’t wait to take this trip again when all the beautiful autumn colors starts to spark.
