|At Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the Scottish Highlands.|
Sadly, I could not find the acoustic version of McFly's "POV," which is infinitely better... :(
The view from the Walter Scott Memorial was my favorite in the entire city. Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat are great lookout points, but then you can't see them! Plus you get a certificate if you climb to the top of the memorial, so there's that. And usually there's a bagpiper nearby, so you really get the full Scottish experience.
|FYI: Anna is the greatest!!|
|Once upon a Royal Mile...|
|I'm still sad about these even though I replaced them!|
When I made this playlist, the Scots had just taught me that dancing to "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by The Proclaimers was always going to be favorite thing. I'd just met Dougie from McFly... *swoon*. I'd learned I could handle R&B in small doses when sandwiched between pop songs. I'd started drinking Strongbow, collecting British versions of the Harry Potter books, considering lemon poppyseed to be the king of all muffins, and crying over X-Factor. I was crazy, adventurous, homesick, enlightened, and confused all at once. And I wouldn't trade that experience for the world.
Are you prone to pulling playlists out of the archives? I highly recommend it!
