Destinations / Europe

Despite the relatively small size of Edinburgh, the city is full of things to do, see, taste and drink, most of which come at prices that aren’t horrible by U.K. standards, but are comparable to other large cities in the British Isles (not including London).


A full Scottish breakfast is a must when in the Scottish capital and consists of eggs, bacon, sausage, buttered toast and baked beans. The Bluebird Cafe serves such heaping breakfasts for budget-friendly prices.


After breakfast, head south to the Royal Mile for mid-morning window shopping, castle spotting and possibly a Scotch whisky tasting. The famous street stretches from Edinburgh Castle to Scottish Parliament and Holyroodhouse, and is an Instagrammer’s heaven with men playing bagpipes, quaint Scottish architecture and whisky around every corner.


If you’re in Edinburgh on one of the few days of the year when it’s not raining, a picnic lunch at the Meadows is a splendid way to spend the afternoon. The perfectly manicured green park is surrounded by rows of trees and high-rises, and houses a small restaurant and a playground within the grounds.


If you’re feeling up for a challenge, lace up your hiking boots for a climb to the top of Arthur’s Seat, the highest point in Edinburgh with views over the city and sea. After working up an appetite, head back downhill into the city for a rewarding dinner and glass of Scotch at Pibroch, a family-run restaurant that serves Scottish beef and Edinburgh Ale pie, caramelized pork with leek sausages, or Haggis, also available vegetarian-style.

Amazon Fire TV Sticks Allow for Streaming Multiple Services

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
