Day 190 – Edinburgh, Scotland

Today we explored Edinburgh’s medieval Old Town. Founded in the 11th century, Edinburg is a wonderful city full of Scottish history and charm (it is Scotland’s Capital). We wandered down the famous Royal Mile which is home to many important city landmarks. Since Edinburg is quite compact, it was very easy getting around on foot.
