Edinburgh winter festivals
The winter festival has just finished in Edinburgh. For 6 weeks, from the start of December to the start of January, the city centre streets come alive day and night with: Outdoor skating in Princes Street Gardens (photo below) Christmas markets with plenty of tasty food and Glühwein Ferris wheel, helter-skelter and other rides The Hogmany street party - about 80,000 people crowd into Princes Street to celebrate New Year and watch the annual fireworks display Our office is just round the corner from the Christmas Market, so our usual lunch stops have been dropped in favor of a stall selling Bratkartoffeln (German sautéed potatoes).
New offices in Edinburgh
We've just moved to new offices in Edinburgh in the rather stunning St Andrew Square. We spent a long time choosing offices since they had to match quite strict sustainability criteria: Easy access to public transport (the train station is 3 minutes walk, the bus station is the other side of the square, and the new tram system will run through the square) Accessible to wheelchair and low vision users (quite hard to find in Edinburgh which is full of very old buildings that are hard to make accessible) Energy efficient with recycling facilities (the office has recycling bins everywhere, with special bins for toner cartridges which go to a recycling charity) Plenty of space for future expansion The new offices fit the bill perfectly, with the bonus of a great view across to Edinburgh Castle.
