  • Edinburgh Coffee Crawl

    Summer makes this city extraordinarily beautiful especially when it is embraced by sunshine. Edinburgh is the city where I fell in love with coffee. Last month, one of my friends was leaving Edinburgh and as coffer lovers, my friends decided to go for a coffee crawl before he left.

  • Celebrating Eid with Friends in Edinburgh

  • Studying together in the library
