Coming Next: A Weekend in Edinburgh!

When I started #take12trips, it was all about making the most of my weekends as a part-time traveller. However, if you’ve read my last post, you’ll know it’s been all change for me this year and I’ve had to adjust some of my plans.

That’s life, and I’m embracing my new direction. But while I’m feeling good, I’m making the most of things – and that includes my beloved weekends! So I am over the moon to announce that this Friday, I’ll finally be off to spend to a weekend in Edinburgh, with ibis Hotels!

I fell in love with Glasgow years ago (about the same time that I fell in love with my Glaswegian boy), but apart from a friend’s wedding and a day trip that was ruined by shockingly bad weather, I’ve never really explored Scotland’s capital. So what better time of year to put that right than June, when the days are gloriously long? I can’t wait!

My two night stay will be short but sweet, but sometimes a trip to a new city for a weekend is all you need to recharge and feed that travel bug. I’ll be staying in the Ibis Hotel Endinburgh Centre – South Bridge, which looks like it’s in a perfect location for me to explore as much of  this beautiful city as I can.

I hope you’ll follow my weekend on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #IbisWeekend and #take12trips. I’m planning on going completely snap happy in Edinburgh, so I’ll be sharing loads of photos!

And do get in touch to let me know if you’ve been to Edinburgh. I’d love to know what you got up to and if there are any gems you think I shouldn’t miss – I’ll do my best to fit them in!
