Glasgow has SO much to offer to both tourists and locals. The city is primarily split into two sections – the city centre and the west end – that involves most restaurants, tourist attractions, pubs and fun activities. I’ve condensed the list down to just 21 (I have 100 more that I will probably spread out into different posts!) so that you don’t get bored half way through reading. Be sure to let me know if you do any of these!
Glasgow is often advertised as a vibrant city that is steeped in history, offering up great bars, restaurants and shopping opportunities. But everyone seems to forget about the good ol’ greenery that Glasgow has to offer. As I mentioned in my post about London, one of my favourite things to do when visiting a city is to people watch in the park. So if you’re visiting Glasgow, or live here and are looking for somewhere else to go on those (often sparse) super hot days, here’s a breakdown of Glasgow’s best parks.
After visiting Go Ape a few few weeks ago, we never really got a chance to see the rest of Aberfoyle because we were busy swing from the trees for 3 hours. We thought since we were free last Sunday that it would be a great opportunity to make the drive back up and take a wander around the main street and surrounding areas to see what there was to do and see.
I never thought I would be sitting down to write a blog post combining Pokemon Go and travel, but here we are! This idea first popped into my head when I started to realise how much more I was getting out the house after work. Usually I would come home, do some housework, make dinner, blog a little and then go to bed. Now I’m wandering around parks and streets I never even knew existed in my local area…all because of Pokemon Go.
Glasgow is home to one of the fiercest football (or soccer) rivalries in the world: The Old Firm. With attendances averaging 50,000 at each home match, Rangers and Celtic are two of Glasgow’s most celebrated clubs in the UK. Unfortunately getting to see them play each other is virtually impossible unless you have a season ticket or know someone closely involved with either team. Nevertheless, it’s easy to get hold of a ticket for every other league home game.
Last weekend Jamie and I headed up to Aberfoyle for a day swinging from the trees at Go Ape. The only way that I can describe Go Ape is that it is a tree-top adventure obstacle course that really gets every part of your body working and really pushes the boundaries of what you thought your limitations were. We had always wanted to go here but with life getting in the way it was just something another thing that we had forgotten to do this summer.
Ok, I covered all the main sites and attractions in last weeks post, but now it’s time to go over some of the alternative things that I found in the city that I didn’t find in any guide book or blog post. Like I had said before, we didn’t really have a plan for Berlin; we were all just excited to get out of Scotland for the weekend, explore something new things and generally just have a good time hanging out with each other and meeting new people.
As someone who loves travel and is a 21st Century kid, I need to keep up with the times! And that means jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to new and innovative ways of using technology and the internet to get the best rate flights, accommodation and tours. Lo and Behold, Airbnb was born!
Berlin was jam packed with weird, wonderful and quirky things at every corner; and that was one of the main reasons why I was initially drawn to Berlin and ultimately fell in love with it. I think I might start making this into a series, I love ahowing you all a side to the places I visit that don’t really fit into regular informative posts (see my Thailand Zoo one here).
The fact this post is live means I’ve been to Berlin, explored the city and now I’m home. Sad times! Last week I travelled to Berlin with two of my closest friends to explore what Germany had to offer. Part of the reason we chose Berlin was simply because I’ve always wanted to go, and partly because the flights and accommodation were so cheap (see my post here on how I managed to travel for £225).
