inaudible melodies

The climb to the hill wasn't particularly treacherous only that the place was freezing cold. Every second I take my hand out to brush away the hair from my face draws my  hand closer to frostbites. Calton Hill has a beautiful view of Edinburgh especially at night. The lights from the busy highway and the steadfast castle from afar is breathtaking.

Our trip to the National Museum of Scotland. I've only gone to 3 museums in my life and I have to say, the place is modernized and has interactive information boards. I get to touch some of the stone walls with the intricate Celtic carvings and some treasure chests of the past. There's a lot more to see rather than from what I've posted but here are few others from the museum:

04 some white ivory chesspieces
05 stained glass
06 a portrait of a bewitching ceremony
07 Mary, Queen of Scots

Funny how I walk away from groups during these kind of historical trips. I tend to stray away from the flock and just get lost in all the history. I take my time in the world and I particularly enjoyed it.

Oh, how wonderful! I would love to see those things someday. Great pictures!

I'm the same way-I'd rather discover things on my own than as part of a tour group-I just like to completely immerse myself in the culture!
