Hey there! I'm Joe, your local host here in Edinburgh. What gets me buzzing about this place? The stunning architecture that whispers tales of bygone eras, the breathtaking views that leave me in awe (despite the unpredictable weather!), and of course, the incredible food and drink scene. Trust me, Edinburgh's pubs and eateries are the stuff of legends! You'll often find me indulging in my other passions—whether that's diving into a good book, savoring a dram of whisky in a cozy pub, or simply strolling through Edinburgh's best kept secret spots. Oh, and let's not forget my knack for uncovering Edinburgh's rich history and folklore—I like to think I'm a bit of a buff in that department! So, whether you're itching to explore the Old Town, soak up the vibes in Stockbridge, or dive into the culture of Leith, I've got you covered. Let's make some memories together in this enchanting city!
