Scotland NYE 2007

I know it’s a bit late but I thought I’d post some photos.. I went on a trip to Scotland over the holidays (Dec 25-Jan 1) with Marisa and a few friends from Omaha. I posted a bunch of pictures on my Flickr page: Edinburgh New Years.

It was a great trip, and the first time I’d been to Europe. Damn, people in Scotland talk really fast. It’s very hard to understand and usually we had to tell people to slow down. The weather was pretty crappy and the main event, the Hogmanay street party, was cancelled due to gale force winds, but we still had a great time. The thing I miss most: the delicious cask ales they serve everywhere.

Edinburgh for New Years

Hogmanay fireworks My cousins Scott and Casey have been planning a trip to Scotland for New Years. When they first told me a few months ago, I didn’t think much of it because I don’t have much vacation time with my new job and don’t have much extra money thanks to buying lots of toys. Then, a few days ago, Casey told me a little more.. apparently this is the biggest and best New Year’s party in the world. It’s an annual tradition called Hogmanay. Basically what happens is they sell about 100,000 tickets to this event, then a few days before New Years they shut down the city and only let people in who have tickets.. and everyone parties for days. Perfect, sign me up, fly me to Europe and give me a few bottles of scotch. It’ll be even more fun because we have 10 people going and we’re going to rent a flat in the city for the week. Marisa and I bought our tickets yesterday.

Ryan’s 21st Birthday Lunch

We went to Round Table for Ryan’s 21st birthday at lunch today, and drank a lot of beer. It was fun. Just like the “good ol’ days” at 2Advanced.
