Edinburgh to London

Our last full day in Edinburgh was Wednesday.  We spent much of the day at the National Museum of Scotland, which was brilliant!

After dinner we met with my bestie Jessie and her family for a tour of Mary King’s Close and a whiskey nightcap. I’m so glad we were able to coordinate our trips that way!

Yesterday we sadly bid adieu to Scotland as we rode the train to London, where we immediately walked about 5 miles taking in the sites.

We loved Edimburgh, and are missing it already.

But, on to London! We successfully navigated the Underground, checked in at our hotel, ate dinner at a pub, and walked to Piccadilly Circus through Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square. It was vibrant, busy, and beautiful.

Maddie and I didn’t realize how perfectly we were mirroring each other until we looked at the picture and pronounced it “eerie”.
