A Terrifc 21st Birthday set up in Scotland by my Chaps!

At my 21st birthday dinner where my friend bought me this rich chocolate Rose cake

Hey Everyone,

So this past Monday the 27th of April was my 21st birthday, and the chaps here in Edinburgh threw me a terrific day! The day began with my flatmate, Oscar Newlands from Cambridge, buying me and himself a ticket to Edinburgh Castle. I had planned on seeing it one of these days for a while now but those tickets are a bloody doozy! I’m so appreciative for him making this surprise for me because it was an awesome time at the castle: viewing the Scottish Crown Jewels, seeing where Sir Walter Scott had found them back in 1818, walking along the battlements and all those cannons, looking at the beautiful view of the city from the castle, and checking out all the regimental museums found in it! Most of the afternoon was spent with us delving deep into the dungeons of Edinburgh Castle and drowning ourselves in glorious history.

Then we had to rush over to the flat to get dressed because all my mates, Damin Park, Benjamin Moody, Lukas Kvedas, Sebastian Hegardt, Oscar Newlands, Amir Botros, and Jamie McLaren treated me to a restaurant on the Royal Mile called “The Albanach bar.” It was this fancy pub with excellent food! I had to dress all my guys in my many blazers over here because they have already sent most of their own formal clothes home but they looked smart as hell! Then at dinner as a gift from my British family aka Oscar Newlands’ family, whom I had stayed with for 2 and a half weeks back during Christmas and New Years, they bought the table two bottles of exquisite Jacques Bardelot Champagne! Then my pal Ben surprised me at dinner with this wonderfully rich Chocolate Rose cake! The food, the champagne, the cake, the company, and the conversations were fantastic! Love those guys!

Then the last phase of my birthday was a big party in the Sciennes common room where all my friends from the uni came and partied for one last time together, a big thanks to all of them for coming even with all their exam prep! But it was an excellent night of pool, ping pong, foosball, FIFA, drinking card games, and then finally ending the day in the club called “Why Not”! With all the surprises, gifts, and good times they me feel so loved and happy! They really made it one rockin 21st birthday!

Cheers and thanks for reading, Alexio
