In the spirit of the season and because I know that I, for one, can always use a little getaway holiday after the holidays, I’ve agreed to team up with Travelodge and give away two night’s stay in any UK Travelodge of your choice!
Naturally, this got me thinking about where I would go. After much contemplation, I think I would head back up to Edinburgh because Scotland might be cold, but it’s magical in the Winter.
Two years ago for my birthday, Jorge and I spent a weekend there, which I realize I never shared on the blog because it was just before I switched over to Little Observationist.
He took me out for a delicious dinner at The Witchery, which I’d highly recommend (it’s definitely worth a splurge, especially if you’re getting a few free night’s accommodation) and I had a wonderful spa morning as well. It’s a charming city with little boutique shops, some cobbled streets and excellent food.
If you win and you do choose Edinburgh (it’s totally up to you), take a little ride out to Roslin, one of my favourite places in the world (<–look at the photos in that link and you’ll see why). I first visited about 10 years ago while I was in the UK as a study abroad student. We stayed in a castle and explored the grounds and the famous Roslin Chapel from The DaVinci Code. It held a lot of wonderful memories. When I found out that Jorge’s sister lived there in this little village outside the city it was such a coincidence because I thought I’d never go back there. But on that trip to Edinburgh, we did. And we walked around the same castle grounds. It’s one of the most beautiful slices of nature, full of history, stories and places to explore.
The giveaway will go on until December 18 and then I’ll contact the random winner via email. Good luck everyone! And leave a comment to let me know where you’d most like to stay!
