Oh, Edinburgh. You are such a beguiling city. Full of beauty and wonder and...grumpy shoppers this time of year. Being the country girl I am, there are very few things that can get me to brave the crowded streets and trains to bask in your glory in the run up to Christmas...well, only 3 things really, a Husband's Birthday, a best friend and a German Market.
There is really only one word to describe the market...delicious. The food is just gorgeous and the sights are a feast for the eye. Every year, I have to be dragged into the city to go and every year I leave thinking how much I love the market...
And so we left the city with full bellies, sore feet and enormous marzipan stollen. But of course, it wouldn't be a birthday in this house without a Guinness Cake so some room was found in our stomachs for more deliciousness.
Happy Birthday, Kevin!!
