The answer to that, for the time being, is somewhere in the United Kingdom.
At this exact moment in time, I am at Euston station in London, awaiting my train to Birmingham. Over the next few weeks I will be making my way north for Christmas and New Years in Edinburgh.
That's right - I'm not content with the barely above freezing London weather - I'm heading north to where it is actually freezing already, and is set to only get colder as the new year approaches.
|Q&A - What the lady from Lonely Planet and TNT suggested I do.|
For Christmas, I plan on hanging out and being merry with any other orphans in the hostel I'll be staying at in Edinburgh. The hostel looks awesome, and has a 'Posh Lounge' with open log fireplace - which is where I'm planning on spending a good part of Christmas day. I especially hope to find myself, glass of mulled wine in hand, watching the Downton Abbey Christmas Special on TV come the evening.
After that I'm off to the highlands for a whirlwind tour taking in the major sights before back to Edinburgh for the almighty Hogmanay. A New Years experience that I am hoping will live up to the hype!
Then, when 2012 become 2013, I will have to look at my finances and job prospects before figuring out what is next on the agenda.
Another year, and another adventure awaits me.
