Christmas in Edinburgh – Adventures With Anya

Hi Guys!!  It’s time for Christmas in Edinburgh!

For the holidays of 2016 we spent Christmas in Edinburgh with my Grandma!  I had such a nice time.  My favorite thing that we did was the Christmas Market rides on Princes Street and the street of lights.  I love things like that.  We also went on a ghost tour, had fun at Edinburgh Castle and played at Camera Obscura.  Everything we did was full of fun, even though it was cold outside.  We even had fun on the Scotch Whisky Experience.
