This magical city lies nestled between extinct volcanoes (Arthur's Seat and Castle Rock), and is compact enough to walk between the old and new town. If you arrive by train into Waverley Station, you're straight into the action. Even the lift up from the station has amazing views!
In September, I took a trip to Barcelona. This was my third trip to Barcelona but my first solo trip. I booked myself into an Airbnb just around the corner from Passeig de Gràcia. It was a beautiful apartment with top floor views of the Eixample neighbourhood.
