We tagged a few days in Fort William on to our time in Edinburgh so that we could enjoy the beauty of the Scottish Highlands, a place The Husby

The highlights for me were the road trips to Fort William via Loch Lomond, the quality time spent with our friends, exploring Fort William with our sleeping babe and finally getting up close with the infamous “heelun coo!”

The Scottish Highlands are a wonderful choice for a rejuvenating family holiday.

For our first ever family holiday we headed up to north to Edinburgh to visit with friends and tick off another country from our wish list. Edinburgh very quickly became one of my all time favourite cities and Scotland one of my all time favourite countries.

Highlights for me include our road trips through East Lothian and the discovery of pretty Portobello, strolling through Princes Street gardens, choosing our very own tartan for the Girard clan and Blossom mastering the art of walking!

I definitely want to return to Edinburgh to explore the castle further and would love to climb Arthur’s seat. However, I must admit I’m also tempted to relocate here so maybe one day I’ll just do these things once I’m living in Scotland!

Last month we managed to squeeze in a little city break to the Czech Republic, one final one just the two of us before baby arrives in the spring. Well my goodness wasn’t Prague cold! To be honest it was actually quite hard to see the place when the snow was falling fast and the roads were so icy we were trying not to slip!

We spent most of our time walking from coffee shop to coffee shop via some city sight and then spent out afternoons chilling in the hotel to warm up. I think I will have to return one day when it is not freezing cold so that I can explore the city with more ease but my favourite city moment was strolling around Charles Bridge with it’s gothic statues and pretty side streets.
