Hogmanay in Edinburgh as an expat

Edinburgh is a city of many levels. You should keep your eyes on the ground to be sure you don’t trip over uneven cobblestones or stumble down a set of stairs. But you should also keep your eyes up so you don’t miss a unicorn sighting or breathtaking castle view. Yet the most interesting level of Edinburgh can be found underneath the Royal Mile in The Real Mary King’s Close Edinburgh Tour.

Hogmanay in Edinburgh as an expat

I write about my life on the Internet. Obviously. What I don’t tend to do in this space I’ve carved for myself is divulge really personal details about my life. Sure, I share stories and adventures – even a few misadventures. But, truly, I’m not baring my soul here. That takes an incredible amount of fortitude, which I witnessed first-hand watching Juliette Burton’s Decision Time at Edinburgh Fringe this week.

Hogmanay in Edinburgh as an expat

It’s that time of year in Edinburgh when every corner of the city turns into a potential venue for arts and entertainment. Pop-up stages cover typically open spaces and street performers claim territory on sidewalks and cobbled streets. It’s festival season in Edinburgh! And I couldn’t be more pleased with the introduction I’ve had to the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in watching the appropriately named play, Remember to Breathe.

Hogmanay in Edinburgh as an expat

After attending the recent Travel Massive event in Edinburgh, I realized there were so many opportunities to easily check out more of Edinburgh than I knew existed. First, I heard about Invisible Edinburgh and took the first tour available with them. Next, I was introduced to Rabbie’s Edinburgh City Tour.

Hogmanay in Edinburgh as an expat

By far one of the most interesting and admirable projects I’ve come across lately has to be Invisible Edinburgh. This social enterprise (read: What is a Social Enterprise and How Can I Get Involved?) offers training to individuals coming from homelessness so they can become walking tour guides. Taking the Invisible Edinburgh Powerful Women tour was a truly enlightening experience for this new expat in Edinburgh.

Hogmanay in Edinburgh as an expat

So we’ve officially moved into Edinburgh! I’m sure you’re as excited as we are to learn more about this beautiful city and its very eclectic inhabitants. Part of moving into a new home is, of course, exploring your surroundings. We’ve been out and about, wandering and popping into various shops and eateries to check out the best of our new expat home (okay, so I’m the only technical expat here since my Irish-Colombian grew up in Scotland, but he’s never lived in Edinburgh). I’ll be sharing some highlights that we uncover as we go…first up is our favorite new cafe: The Treehouse Cafe.
