Edinburgh Experience Discover Imagine

Experience The Lifestyle, Edinburgh From The Inside: Inspired by a video montage that is currently being shown at the National Museum in Edinburgh, this piece attempts to create a vision of Edinburgh, its delicacies and its culture from the inside.

‘Edinburgh is home to some of the greatest and some of the strangest people I have ever met; rarely do you get to see such a wild variety of people sharing the pavements.’

‘Edinburgh might be small, but you couldn’t run out of things to do if you tried.’

‘Edinburgh pretends to go to sleep at 3am but you can always manage to get a pint or a chippy from behind closed doors.’

‘The meadows and the word procrastination go hand in hand.’

‘The meadows? Probably the one place in Edinburgh where I seem to get blown over, every winter without fail.’

‘The meadows are like a giant solar panel; they are deserted for most of the year until the sun comes out, then, you can’t seem to find a space on the grass amongst the circus of Frisbees, footballs, tight rope walkers, musicians and people trying to sunbathe in Scotland – I have no idea where they all hide for the rest of the year?!’

‘Irn Bru is possibly the most revolting drink in the world’

‘Irn Bru should be handed out to all students if universities expect anyone to turn up to 9am lectures’

‘Irn Bru is a work of genius, every time I wake up feeling horrendous after a night out, I reach over to my bedside table where I have carefully placed a bottle next to my paracetamol the night before and suddenly the world becomes a brighter place.’
