Photo Friday: Holyrood Palace

Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, Scotland

The queen visits for three weeks in the summertime, and the other royals use it as they wish, but we were glad they weren't there this April because it gave us a chance to explore.

I would have never guessed it, but my kids have discovered history on the trip. And they love it. Darya is fascinated by Mary Queen of Scots, who had apartments here, and both kids are fascinated to learn more about how royalty really lives. Here's hoping that our travels provide the anchor they need to make history just as fascinating in book form as it is in real life.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        Well, what more could you ask for? How exciting that your kids have taken a liking to history! Wonder if all your travel and adventures have something to do with it?

        It's nice that kids are learning new things during travel. Travel to experience and discover new things in new places you were about to visit.
