On The Fringe :: #VisitScotland Pt 2

Aside from it being an extremely beautiful city, there was another reason I was pretty stoked to be stranded in Edinburgh for the night: The Fringe.

Possibly one of the biggest cultural events in the world, it’s something I’ve always wanted to experience.  Sadly, I wasn’t going to be able to pack a lot in to one night, something like this requires a planning.  I would have loved to see Aussie Sam Simmons, Youtuber Miranda Sings or bloody hilarious Paul Foot, but alas it was not meant to be.

I did get something out of it though, many a laugh was had.

I decided to saunter down Princes Street towards The Stand Square, I’d bought a ticket for Set List Live, a show where comedians take to the stage and improvise, taking inspiration from random phrases that appear on a screen behind them.  I love stand up and I love improv even more, so it was the perfect choice!

But before all that, a wander:




I did pop back to Fredericks for a glass of wine and a read of my book (which I’ve now finished, it was #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso and I recommend it to EVERYONE).




I then arrived at my destination, St Andrew Square!









The best place to learn more about Set List is to visit them on Twitter.  The Fringe is an event well worth making the journey to Edinburgh for.  There’s so much to choose from, the shows are all pretty well priced.  I loved it, want to go again and get more out of it!
