Glasgow

overcast 65 °F

First impression, disappointed I still wasn’t in London. Glasgow is a bit dirtier than London, the buildings are darker and heavier looking, but the food scene is so much better. So much better! The language barrier was difficult at times, oh wait, they speak English you say, not so fast. They speak a form of English, but it is definitely more like Scotglish (English spoken fast with marbles in your mouth). I know, that’s a little harsh but it’s true, the accent is distinct and at times, it was rather fun trying to guess what they were actually saying but other times like during our tour of a brewery it just seemed like a waste of money. Glasgow is a small city and easy to get around, they have a few nice pedestrian streets and a couple of beautiful squares to visit but the most gorgeous place to see is their botanical gardens. I’m not really a garden type of person but the beauty of these gardens was so impressive it is worth a visit. The weather was typical Scottish, cloudy with drizzle every day but that didn’t hamper any of our adventures.

When planning this visit to Scotland, our choice was to stay here or Edinburgh, we chose Glasgow because it was more reasonably priced. We took a day trip to Edinburgh which was fun, but I’m happy with our stay in Glasgow because it was less crowded and as I already mentioned, the food scene was fabulous.
