Even though I am not a morning person, I was particularly impressed with myself, when at Edinburgh in Scotland, I trotted out of bed at the unworldly hour of 4 a.m.! A nice, hot cup of coffee was followed by a hot shower and meditation. Then getting dressed in my favorite Ralph Lauren check shirt, a pair of True Religion jeans and a Zara jacket with a Gucci bag to match, I was out and about in the Old Town of Edinburgh at 6 a.m.! The sun had started to come out of the clouds, spreading it's rays and enveloping this ancient town of the Scots in a soft, golden light. The roads were empty and it was very silent except the occasional screeching of luggage-wheels heard in the distance, as tourists made their way to the railway station, dragging their suitcases behind them.
I felt hauntingly alone and yet I wouldn't have liked to share this morning with anyone except myself - seriously, I love solo-travel!
My morning ended with a tall cappuccino and croissant at the Starbucks located in the Old Town of Edinburgh. Housed in an ancient building rich with history, it's probably one of it's kind in the world.
