cousins unite

My cousin Brianna has been over this side of the world for the last few months, which has been really nice in terms of having family to message in the same time zone! And in September she managed to come over for a weekend visit.

Unfortunately I didn't take too many photos but here is some of the stuff we did!

A sunny day in Edinburgh
The weather was amazing for the weekend and it didn't rain once. We went for a walk through the Grassmarket, down The Royal Mile and up Arthurs Seat in the sun. I think I even got a bit of a tan...a baby one. 

Me up Arthurs Seat
After some lunch at a cafe we headed to ANOTHER (potentially turning into our Mums...) to have coffee and cake. I have been meaning to go to Lovecrumbs for a long time because I walk past it everyday, and it didn't disappoint. We had an iced coffee which came in a jar and Brianna had banana walnut cake and I have chocolate peanut butter. YUM. 


Delicious iced coffee
That night we went out to Electric Circus for magic nostalgic, where every half an hour the wheel is spun and anew genre or category of music is played. It was a bit awkward when we first went because of the copious amounts of hen and stag do's, but then we got into it and the power ballads and Britney vs. Justin half hours definitely made the night! 

Electric Circus!

Actual nice photo
The next day we had brunch at Project Coffee (had to give Brianna the Edinburgh cafe experience since she was missing it in Holland!) and headed out to Jamie's Italian for dinner that night. 

Sunset on Princes Street

Starter platters

Delicious rabbit pasta

Brownie and tart for dessert!!
All in all it was an awesome weekend and so nice to show someone around Edinburgh and my life here. I will definitely need to get over to The Netherlands to visit as soon as possible!
