Back from Scotland

After a couple of days in Edinburgh, I’m home again.

Edinburgh was absolutely lovely—it’s a shame I couldn’t spend more time there. Probably the most picturesque city I’ve ever been to. Got a chance to snap the Forth Railway Bridge, too, which I’d hoping to do for quite some time.

As I said on Facebook, though, say what you will about Korea, but it certain has its IT and transportation shit together. Spent a lot of time at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, which I’m told is one of Europe’s best airports. To be sure, it was quite nice, the staff were very friendly, and compared to the Third World shitholes that are the United States’ major ports of entry, it was a veritable paradise. But still, it couldn’t hold a candle to Incheon International Airport in terms of architecture, facilities or ease of use.

And as far as Wifi access goes, there’s no comparison at all.

PS: Can’t say enough good thing about Xanax. I’m usually petrified of flying, but this time around, I was happy as a clam.

    Did you try haggis?

    Also great for hangovers and for tolerating annoying wives. I’m not talking about the haggis.

    Welcome back from one of the finer non-shit holes of the world. This Hole wasn’t the same without ya.

    Edinburgh is a really lovely city. Scenic, very good food if you know where to look (it’s not all deep fried pizza and sheep innards), friendly, great bookshops, a thriving art scene, great pubs – if it wasn’t for the atrocious weather (10 months of the year) it would be the greatest city on the planet!

    Happy to hear you had a good time in my mum’s home town.

    Well, you know what they say about Europe. It’s got great scenery for about two weeks, then it just becomes like everywhere else, but with a lot of old buildings.
