10 Days – England, Scotland, and Iceland – Introduction


I hope you enjoyed reading about our experiences on the trip to England, Scotland, and Iceland. Hopefully my reviews of the flights, lounges, and hotels were somewhat informative and helpful. To conclude, I wanted to write one final post about my final thoughts on each of the three places we went to – mainly since I haven’t talked much about the cities in previous posts.

London was absolutely beautiful and gorgeous, the old historical buildings and architecture were downright amazing and we spent days simply admiring the buildings and the overall atmosphere of the city. Life doesn’t stop in London and perhaps that’s what I loved about it – that you feel that you are alive and so are the people around you. We visited some of the major tourist attractions and also explored the city a lot in-depth as we had four full days. I plan on moving somewhere to Europe once I finish uni in about three years, and I think London might be at the top of my list of possible places to live – I mean it is just a short two hour flight away from Kraków, which would mean I would get to see my family more often. London is awesome!

Edinburgh is a gorgeous city, and the capital of Scotland where we spent three days in. If I were to summarise Edinburgh it would be: dark and green. Literally, almost every single building is super dark and then there are trees and plants that add colour and make the buildings look much more pleasant. We did quite enjoy Edinburgh and found it beautiful with all of the historical castles, palaces, churches, and squares. Edinburgh felt a lot less busy than London and therefore people were doing things a bit slower, but it was nice for us to unwind and relax a bit from the busy lifestyle. Edinburgh was beautiful and I will definitely return at some point in the future to explore it a bit more.

Iceland, Iceland, Iceland. Oh my. I did not expect Iceland to be so gorgeous and captivating. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a country/place that was filled with so much beauty than Iceland. Over the three days that we had, we explored as much of Iceland as we could and may I say that we had an amazing time there. I wrote a bit in Exploring Iceland, but I just wanted to mention again at how captivating the country was. Iceland is filled with beautiful landscapes, scenery, cities, mountains, lakes, etc. The list goes on and on. Tourism is definitely rising in Iceland, however lots of people still don’t know just how gorgeous it is, and therefore I would recommend visiting sooner rather than later to get a more genuine experience. Beyond that, Iceland is very clean, modern, and safe – the locals are super friendly and most people speak English. I will definitely be returning to Iceland soon as I want to explore more ‘inside’ of the island as well as some other cities around Iceland. The highlight of our trip was definitely the gorgeous scenery we witnessed around the Golden Circle and also in Reykjavík.

To sum it up, we had a blast in all three places, however Iceland and the beauty it contained won us over and I think it was an excellent ending to the trip. All in all, we had a lot of fun exploring the various places we went to and I will definitely return to them at some point. I hope you all enjoyed the pictures and my writing, thanks for reading!
