Something fun for Harry Potter fans visiting Edinburgh?

Of course! 

Let’s take you to The Elephant House Cafe in the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland’s pulsating capital city!


It looks like an unlikely spot for the blockbuster it secretly housed. But yes, J.K. Rowling sat here, scribbling furiously over cups of coffee and we are sure, Scottish scones.



Do visit the loo here: the walls are filled with ‘letters’ scribbled to the author from women across the world!



Besides inspiration, the Cafe also serves full breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the menu are pizzas, salads, pasta, Haggis, Neeps and Tatties (Scotland’s national dish), and something called Lucas of Musselburgh Ice Cream which we did not taste but are sure is a delicious secret in itself!

The Happy Traveller: Being versus Buying

A recent study by the San Francisco University says people who spend money on experiences are happier than those who splurge on ‘things.’

A survey of 10,000 people revealed that those who did something ‘fresh’ such as watching movies, discovering a new eatery, taking a detour—were generally more content, less stressed and more popular than those who blew their cash on shoes or fancy gadgets.
