‘The timeworn streets of the Old Town are about to be transported into a superhero-studded world of action as explosive scenes are filmed for the next installment of the Hollywood blockbuster The Avengers,’ according to Fiona Pringle of the Edinburgh Evening News.
Since visiting Edinburgh last summer, I am intrigued by any event that is transpiring in the historic city.
Edinburgh has such a unique personality and character… it gets into your soul. We traveled with our dear friends Jeff and Margo and spent five days and nights in a lovely flat that was located within the city and easy walking distance from the Castle, that was just up the hill, and the Royal Mile.
The City emanates its’ colorful, and sometimes, dark history. The Scottish people are lovely, welcoming, and friendly.
Our ‘Ghost Tour’ was a highlight of our time in Edinburgh and enriched us with the shadowy side of this great City.
I have seldom been in a city that the palpable…spiritual essence of it…stuck with me long after my leaving of it.
Our tour of the hidden vaults under the ancient cobblestone streets of Edinburgh was spooky and undeniably real.
Edinburgh…I think is a lifestyle…and it has the dynamic draw on your heart…to compel you to return.
There is an ethereal component to Edinburgh…it is a haven for writers, J. K. Rowling wrote much of the Harry Potter series in a local restaurant, the Elephant House, and it is a place for theatre, as the Fringe Festival so aptly illustrated to us, and it is a place for the Arts.
I want to return to this magic place…I hope you do to?
