Spend New Year’s Celebrating Hogmanay in Scotland!

November 29, 2010

If John Travolta had made a movie called "Wild Hogmanay", it probably would have been much more successful.

New Year’s Eve is going to be cold no matter where you are in the Northern Hemisphere, so if you can’t get south, how about getting to Scotland?

Celebrate big with Haggis Adventures as they share the best of Hogmanay with you on 4-, 5- or 7-day tours that include New Year’s in Edinburgh.

And just what is Hogmanay? It’s a massive 4-day art and music and culture event that ends with a gigantic street party with fireworks and live music and all kinds of craziness.

So talk to a student travel expert about getting a student airfare across the Atlantic, and they can also help you book your Haggis tour. Or Eurail Pass. Or hostel stays. Or whatever else is on your holiday travel wish list.




New Year’s Travel Wishes

December 26, 2008

“I’ve always held the belief that however you spend your New Year’s Celebration, it will be reflected in the year ahead, such was that year behind the wheel. Here’s another example: If you have the dream of traveling, I suggest packing your bags and having them with you when the clock strikes 12. Really show the universe that your intention is more than a thought. It is an action!”

Jason Mraz

So where will you and your bags be this New Year’s?


Spend New Year’s Strutting in Miami

November 29, 2007

King Mango StrutPlanning a trip around a wacky or exciting event can be a lot of fun. For example, if you’re interested in seeing Boston you can go at any time and have fun. But go for the Boston Marathon, or the 4th of July concert at the Hatchshell, or any Red Sox vs. Yankees game at Fenway, and you’ll see a whole other side to the city.

So if Miami is someplace you’ve thought about checking out, do it for New Year’s. The weather is bound to be better there than in Times Square, and you’ll be able to enjoy the King Mango Strut.

“A who in the what now?” you ask. I’ll let the organizers tell you:

What started as a rejected group from the King Orange Bowl Parade has grown into the wackiest event in south Florida (not counting the elections). The King Mango Strutis the most fun event Miami has to offer, full of irreverent, creative and wacky people and lots of opportunity to make fun of everything and anything. There is no better place for the strut than in Miami, Floriduh.

This year’s Grand Marshalls are Mimi Davila and Laura Di Lorenzo, the Aventura girls who you may have seen on YouTube with their “Fergalicious” parody, “Chongalicious“. You can hardly turn down the chance to see them, can you?

Get your student airfare, your feather boa, and your sunscreen, and have a New Year’s adventure!
