On Saturday when I was home for the weekend Mum and Dad decided we were going to have a day out in Edinburgh. So after a successful driving lesson we jumped in the car and drove down to the capital. We parked the car further out of the center and took the bus up to the Royal Mile - as it is the most touristy part of Edinburgh it is an area we rarely visit.

First stop was the 'Writer's Museum' just off the royal mile. It was really interesting to learn more about three giants of Scottish Literature. I also found the building fascinating - built in the 1600s it is a real treasure.

Next we took the short walk to the 'Dovecot Studios' because there was an exhibition by Bernat Klein my dad wanted to see. I found the gallery really interesting and there were quite a few pieces I would have taken home with me. Especially the black tapestry with the burning ring in the center. In real life it was really mesmerizing. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did.

Finally onto what I was really excited about - at Christmas I bought my dad the Mother India cook book and he has made several of the delicious recipes. Obviously I was really excited to visit the 'Mother India Cafe' Edinburgh branch. They do indian food in a tapas style so between the 4 of us we picked 8 dishes. They were all honestly so good!!! I'm dreaming of going back already - I would have taken some photos but it was kinda dark and not all the dishes came out at once. You can imagine how a table cluttered with bowls is an instagrammers nightmare but you'll just have to trust me and visit if you get the chance.

Five thirty rolled round to quickly and before we knew it everywhere was shutting. We took the long walk back to the car but I had the perfect day. I hope you enjoyed the photos I took.
