The best night of the year is usually the worst. It gets so hyped up, New Year's Eve, but it often seems to wind up with frustrated, sober people wandering the back streets at 3am looking for non-existent taxis to take them home so they can pretend this whole thing never happened.
It can be even more of a gamble for travellers, where getting your NYE party on is made that little bit more difficult by the fact that you have no idea what you're doing or where you're going.
Done right though, it can be the best night of your life. As I'll be doing my countdown in Berlin this year, I've been thinking about the ways to ensure the first hours of 2013 are spent in the best way possible.
