I remember the first time I saw the beautiful skyline of Edinburgh. It was spring of 2007 and I was celebrating the end of a year-long teaching stint in Austria by taking a week long vacation to an English speaking country (or three) with my roommate, Lindsey. After stopping in London for a few days, we boarded the train at King's Cross Station (the very place that Harry Potter departs for Hogwarts) and set out headed north along the coast. It was an absolutely stunning train ride. Then we arrived into Waverley Station and headed up to street level...and WOW!
