Late October isn’t really the recommended time to visit Scotland. It’s cold up there and it rains quite a lot, both of which are only worse in the late autumn. Nevertheless, this is just the time that we decided to take our first trip to Edinburgh, with my mom in tow.
You’ve heard it all before from me. The summer of 2012 has been absolutely miserable here in the UK, and after a few days of decent weather at the beginning of September we have now been unceremoniously plunged into the rain and cold of autumn.

Bruges, Belgium is famous for many things – chocolate, lace, and canals most notably. The city does however have a famous resident that you might not know about – and he’s a rather cute resident at that. No, it’s not an artist, writer, painter, or royal. He’s a bit furrier than that.
