Carnival! Hogmanay style.

Hogmanay Carnival


Hogmanay Carnival has come to town. From my building I can hear the sounds of the Ghost Train and the screams of anyone who dares to do the bungee catapult. Last night, in a spontaneous post-cocktail maneuver, my friend and I decided to end the evening on a high note (literally). We went for Mach-1, pictured fourth from top, in which you sit in a little pod and are swung around on the 'spoke,' and then your pod flips you upside down and all over the place. And in addition to the cocktail, I had just eaten a buffalo haggis burger (it was actually called the Kilted Buffalo Burger). I have a pretty tough stomach when it comes to theme park rides, so I wasn't actually very concerned, but still... It's a little unreal to open your eyes (when you remember to) and see Edinburgh Castle and all of the illuminated Christmas trees upside-down. But also one of the best things EVER!

Edinburgh isn't known for its festivals for nothing, it would be appear! I can't wait to share my Hogmanay experience with you all! :)
