Scotland is one country that is naturally beautiful. The landscape is manicured by heaven. Anywhere I look, there’s always something worthy of a camera shot. Good that I longer need films otherwise a good portion of my pocket money would go to rolls of film.

Today’s our last day to explore the city of Edinburgh and we are doing that by foot. Oyen has a Fitbit and everyday her goal is to rack =up at least 10,000 steps. Me, I don’t even walk past 1,000 steps a day so it would be my day’s challenge. How to step-up and level-up with my fitness conscious daughter.
Our plan is to walk along Royal Mile all the way down to Holywood Palace so I could buy some plates. I discovered that store selling the most beautiful plates worthy of a royal dinner and ever since that day, I have always thought of going back.
It would be at least a mile walk and here are some photos I randomly took along the way.
I bought this cotton summer blouse for 39 pounds. It’s made in India.
There are many bookstores and stationery shops all over the city. I hope their tradition of reading books, giving books, sending out greeting cards, wrapping gifts don’t disappear with the advent of internet. It’s more personal that way rather than just clicking like and typing HBD!
We got back to the hotel at 5 pm after walking the whole day. Fitbit registered 12k or 15k steps. I was dead tired and passed out the minute I laid my head on the pillow. I couldn’t get up for dinner. I slept thru the night and woke up at 4 am the following morning.
