Q: Activity! Hopefully warm weather for most of us is here soon…so tell us about your favorite outdoor reading spot. Or take a picture.

Well, most of the time it's not warm enough in Edinburgh until May, at the earliest, for outdoor reading. But when it gets warmer, there's nothing better than a lazy day with a book or friends in The Meadows- a park in the middle of Edinburgh. Here I am last summer,



Where's your favourite outdoor reading spot? Thanks for stopping by!

  36. Hi

    First of all I'm sorry for the lateness =/ I'm following you back now via GFC.

    Love the picture and I'm glad to hear that you like reading at the park. I cannot do it, I can only read when there is eerily quite like the only thing I can be able to hear is my own heart beat. Now that I just said it, it somehow sounds creepy right 0-o
