The plan for my first weekend is going to
. I have heard so much about it, and I was really looking forward to see the Edinburgh castle. Edinburgh
We took a six-hour train to get there, which is kind of far but the beautiful view along the way made this trip much more fun. I saw hundreds of sheep standing under the sun; some horses ran on the grass. All the mountains and grasslands are so green.

It is such a once in a life time opportunity, which made us so happy. Edinburgh
