Flag of Austria  , Salzburg,
Friday, January 18, 2013

Step 1) Tell everyone in the hotel that it's your 18th birthday two weeks in advance. Also include waiters in Lederhosen at the cafe that serves good coffee. By no means forget random passersby, including the old man with Alzheimer's (this is actually quite a good target, as you can tell him almost every day).

Step 2) Birthdays must be celebrated into, ergo rush to London Pub with 15min to spare before THE BIG COUNTDOWN (and to ogle at RAF men who ALL SPEAK ENGLISH).

Step 3) Speak to and have drinks bought by said RAF men.

Step 4) Have pizza with artichokes (veggies!) and a bottle of wine at 3.30am. Proceed to make nice RAF man chug his wine so that the waitress can go home. We feel your pain, fellow waitress.

Step 5) Pass out.

Step 6) Wake up without the aid of an alarm clock (the novelty of this is too huge to convey) to open presents followed by massive birthday breakfast at the neighboring bakery and philosophizing about the meaning of life and the need for bacon (Austrians believe fried ham is bacon, poor deprived sods).

Step 7) Have amazing back and foot massage at a spa, curtesy of best friend. Walk around with happily zonked facial expression and think how amazing said best friend is.

Step 8) Receive massive packages in the post filled with chocolate! Cadbury.... Mmmmh...

Step 9) Get surprised by fellow waiters with a bottle of champagne, a teddy bear (nicknamed Satan Teddy, due to it's ability to appear in random places without anyone having actually moved it...), an inscribed pen and a bottle of Amarula.

Step 10) Stuff face with birthday chocolate and say "I can't believe I'm finally 18!" repeatedly. Also enthuse about all the things one can now legally do, only to realize that one's been doing everything for the last few years already anyway.
