10 Things

Rick and I are doing dueling blogs on the things we loved about our month in Edinburgh. His are here.

1. Time with Llara, Nandita, Chitra, Marianne. Meeting Sofia. Meeting Stuart, his mom and friends.

2. Touching the area where Mary was crowned Queen of Scots.

3. All the English books in the charity shops.

4. The literary walking tour.

5. The village of South Queensferry.

6. Rosslyn Chapel, which I knew off before The DiVinci Code. The walk to and from the castle.

7. The great public transportation.

8. The way the city glorifies its writers and history.

9. The beautiful buildings creating such a good feeling.

10. The happiness that Rick had at playing St. Andrews


People Abroad said...

Hi! I am Nerissa, a Filipino living in Italy.
We just started a website dedicated to the lives of all those living in a country other than the one where they were born. Thru we intend to increase connections, awareness, and understanding among people.
We would like to ask you to contribute as an author to the website by writing even one single post with photos and/or videos about the region of the world you live in. Your post can be externally linked to your personal websites, blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter account, and/or anything else you like, in order to promote your own activity.
If possible, we would also like you to write your story (bio - where you live and how you decided to live your life abroad) – example:
To become an author, it is not necessary to live in a different country from where you were born, but simply to know a bit of the world by having lived, studied, or traveled abroad.
Please, sign up to our website at and send all your files with things you would like to share (your story or your posts) by email to people(at)peopleabroad(dot)org. In case of big files, send them by WETRANSFER.
Since this website is still under construction, we do not have yet made it available to search engines for indexation. So, to access it, just type
We are just starting and that is why your help is essential. We would love to see you onboard!
All the best,
