Walking in Edinburgh in the middle of winter is no easy thing; no its not because of the cold, its not because of the rain, but its because of winds.
Scotland is the windiest country in Europe and it sure is, I have been here for months and not single day existed without winds, and sometimes the wind is so strong that you have to really make an effort to walk straight.
So here is my guide for easier walking:
1) lose weight, rounded figures have bigger surface area and wind resistance is higher.
2)Walk a lot, work out your legs everyday so you can resist against the might winds.
3)Do not wear baggy clothes, they can act as sails.
4)Wear Boots, the heavier they are the more grip you have.
5)Wear a scarf to protect your neck.
6)And finally be sure to go out on weekend nights to see girls tiny little mini skirts blown up, revealing the lack of what can describe of any type of full underwear :P.
