A Few Snapshots from the Fringe Festival


Today I had to visit a place just off the epicentre of the Edinburgh Festival, the Royal Mile, and I couldn’t resist taking Lana to see the street performances and all the madness going on after – even though pushing a buggy in a crowd is not my idea of fun…It wasn’t too bad though and it was worth it as Lana was definitely entertained (and a wee bit confused)!

Here are a few photos I took with my phone – a lot of random stuff going on as all the performers and flyerers are fighting for the attention of the bypassers  🙂

I’ve often fled the city during the festival but I’ve learned to embrace the madness and I have to say that I feel really proud to live in the city that hosts the world’s biggest and best arts festival! It’s nice that there’s so much on for children as well, and although I’ve taken Lana to a few shows and happenings I already look forward to next year when she’ll be older and hopefully be able to sit still for more than 5 seconds!

Have you ever been to Edinburgh Festival? Would you like to go?

I’m a Swedish-speaking Finn who left Finland for the lovely and thrilling London town in 2011, but after meeting an equally lovely and thrilling Scotsman I somehow now find myself in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. In February 2015 our gorgeous little girl arrived and made us a happy family of three. Follow my blog and get to know us!
