It's been over 3 years since my last travel adventure and I'm so excited!! This will be the first time I'll be traveling alone, but only for the first stretch of my trip. A bit nervous, but more excited :-)
Neighborhoods -- I'll be in Edinburgh for about 4 full days and I'm looking into Airbnb for places to stay north of the city center. Just started looking into New Town area, Stockbridge... would this be too far/safe or me to walk/bus in the evenings? I'm a bit of a night owl and was wondering if I stayed out and for example, took one of the night time tours, if it would be safe for me to walk or bus back to Stockbridge (or other neighborhoods a bit further away from the city center? Being a female from a big city, I am assuming most cities will have safe and unsafe areas? I'd love to stay in an area not too touristy, so I can get a more local experience.
Itinerary -- I literally, just booked my tickets. Traveling end of April. Would love suggestions on cultural events I can check out. Maybe even day trips if not too far. My to-do list so far consist of... Edinburgh castle, Arthur's Seat, local farmer's markets, checking out different neighborhoods/local stores, whiskey tasting, local cuisine...
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Any suggestions, tips or feedback would be greatly appreciated :-)
