The Masterpiece of Old Town

The Masterpiece of Old Town

About this memory

Nature and human creativity can create masterpieces together. Together being the key word.

When I first arrived in Edinburgh, I switched my phone off and borrowed a map and walked around the city. Everything I saw that day was a new frame in my mind. After 10 months in the city, the frame of St. Giles Cathedral constantly keeps changing in my mind and every time I see it I feel the excitement of seeing something new and unexplored. An absolute gem in the centre of Old town, it is a place to be inspired and recharged when you are away from your home.
