It’s my last day in Edinburgh, sigh… Sad to go today, have had a wonderful time visiting my mum, dad, brother, mum in law, and friends. I’m managed to pack a huge amount in six short days. My highlights have been going to see the kelpies, a fantastic theatre show at the Pleasance #EdinburghFringe – The Curse of Cranholme Abbey – https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/curse-of-cranholme-abbey
Eating lots of scrumptious food both at home (my mum is an amazing Malaysian cook!) and at local restaurants. Walking around the fun and unusual shopping streets, I’d definitely recommend Cockburn Street for its quirkiness!
It’s fun seeing all the street performers and these young people from Korea – Beyond The Mirror – caught my eye – https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/behind-the-mirror
Here’s a spectacular view wouldn’t you agree?
Whilst in Edinburgh during the International Festival and Fringe you inevitably see some extraordinary sights, so with this in mind, here’s my Tanka.

Have you ever been to the Edinburgh Festival? I love it and always try to go every year.

Marje, is a punter a gambler (I looked it up) or a person on a boat? LOL! As my husband says every time I watch BBC America… wha??? I love your visit and dreamed about the Kelpies the last few nights. I’ve never been to Scotland. It looks fabulous. Hugs! <3
I used punter is the colloquial way …. Meaning a customer. Scotland is amazing as are the Kelpies. If you ever get a chance to visit Edinburgh make sure it’s during the Festival there is so much to do in August and there is a massive book festival too.
Marje, if I ever come to the UK you, Hugh, and Sally would be the first people to visit on my list. I would expect a guided tour!! LOL! <3
Yes indeed hope you visit one day Colleen, would love to meet you in person. 🙂
Me too! I lived in the U.K. Back in the early 1980’s. Loved it! ❤️
Thank you Willow. I love being up in Edinburgh during the fringe festival. 🙂
I am quite envious 😉🌹🌹
I’m back now! Sigh, a shart trip would love to have stayed longer but I’m back to work this afternoon. I packed a huge amount in in 5 days!
That’s the way to do it! Don’t work too hard💜
Ha ha no chance!

Thank you Debby. 🙂
Welcome Marje 🙂
