Edinburgh

Ive decided to go up and see the cousins in Edinburgh. There not Scottish, there actually from Galway but went to the Edinburgh Comedy festival and kind of fell in love with the place. So its about time I took advantage of Ryanairs low cost travel and got my arse up there. I have heard nothing but good things about the place.

I have been to Scotland twice before. To the not so lovely Glasgow, although I must admit I had a great time on both occasions there. Its a bit like O'Connell street in the early 90s. Got that picture in your head now? Well thats Glasgow. Tracksuits and knacker tashes.

I want to do some more travelling this year instead of spending my money on shite I dont need. I have become a bit better at shopping for food and therefore I am slowly learning how to budget a bit. I know for a fact some of my housemates live on half my wages so I do sometimes wonder where does it all go. Therefore I am adding the following my new years resolution. I want 6 weekends away, attend Glastonbury and go on holiday for a week. Going home to Dublin doesnt count and if I go to London or Brighton for a weekend they dont count either.

So first stop Edinburgh, then maybe Amsterdam in April. Any suggestions more than welcome.
