One of the things I wished so hard for in my late teens and early twenties was the ability to travel. So many people take for granted the fact that the colour of their passports provide them with a gateway to visiting so many incredible parts of the world.Not mine! I have to plan months ahead and spend extra money for visas and insurance, all the while hoping that the visa officials think I am worthy of entering their country. That being said, I certainly had no excuse for not visiting Scotland, especially after living in Ireland and England for a long time and I set out to correct that error. Even more exciting was the fact that my journey included taking the ferry. A first for me!!!!

My outfit was inspired by my need to not blend in with my surroundings. I have succumbed to the winter trend of navy and black every other winter and I decided this would be different. This lovely bright (very) jumper is from ASOS. I love the cross-over front and choker detail but alas this was very impractical so I wore a black t-shirt underneath. Jeans and booties are a staple for autumn/winter especially for travel. I love the slightly destroyed denim look without being overkill.  All details for outfits or similar linked at the end of the post.

The ferry was ginormous but I was disappointed with the passenger’s deck. This is simply because I was expecting a cruise-like ship. Yes I expected game rooms, lots of people milling about enjoying food and beverages but alas it was like being at the bus station. The “outside deck” was glorious - I surrounded by sea, wind and rain. The lifeboats were a stark reminder of what could go wrong.  

My first night in Edinburgh was spent in Bryant and Mack Private Detective, a cozy hipster speakeasy cocktail bar, sipping on masterfully crafted cocktails. This is my top recommendation for “date-night”. Their attention to detail was spectacular.
