If Edinburgh were a person, it wouldn‘t be the sort you would want to be friends with straightaway. It would stand in the corner of a pub, frowning, taking big sips of a pint and it most probably wouldn‘t ever stop moaning about the weather. So if this isn‘t the kind of person you want to spend your precious time with, we get it. And we won‘t blame you.
But you see, if you open up to Edinburgh, you‘ll end up falling for it. Edinburgh may seem dull on a week‘s night, but it wouldn‘t be unlikely for you to find a pub where you can tune in with passionate musicians singing old folk songs all night long.
You won´t be finding Edinburgh´s typical delicacies in a “grande cuisine” cookbook, but there‘s nothing like a good Scottish breakfast on the day after a beer-soaked night. Edinburgh‘s dark closes all around the Royal Mile, the typical Scottish courtyards, may seem a rough spot to be in when the wind comes blowing from the North.
But when the sun finally reaches them, there‘s no better place to enjoy the rare peace and quiet of Old Town and marvel at the old stone buildings around you.
Needless to say, it didn‘t take long for us to fall for this city – yes, indeed, we got edinburghized.
Our travel magazine became an arrangement of our own favourites, interests and sensations – as eclectic as the city and our writers. Getting new insights and at the same time not neglecting the trademarks of Edinburgh, our articles cover topics from A, like art galleries to W, like weekend guide; from a philosophical approach to the city, to a selfexperiment with a deep-fried Mars Bar.
Amongst what personally struck us about this captivating place, we chose to capture the feelings of those who have been edinburghized before us. Locals, people who came to the city for work or for romance, Erasmus students. With our work we hope to put some bits of the city‘s incomparable spirit across to you. And with a pinch of luck, to get you just as edinburghized as we are.ausbildung, auslandspraktikum, curso eg, curso24, Edinburgh, experience, gap programme, journalismus, journalistik, reisejournalismus, studium, travel, work, writing
