Edinburgh Christmas Markets

Hey everyone.

It’s the last week of classes and I’m feeling busier than ever. Just this past weekend I took a day trip with some friends to Edinburgh, Scotland to see the notorious Christmas markets. My inner child was giddy as ever because Christmas markets aren’t that big of a thing in Canada. With my 16-25 railcard, I paid roughly £20 for my round-trip train from Newcastle central station. We spent the whole day there, although we didn’t really account for the rain and cold so we had to pop into a cafe every couple of hours to warm up; it was -4 degrees C which is the coldest I’ve experienced in Europe so far! I’ve put together a video to show you all how incredible the city and the Christmas markets are so I hope you enjoy (and maybe even visit yourself!).
