Glasgow’s Christmas Markets

Glasgow Christmas Markets - St Enoch

The Glasgow Christmas markets are almost always overlooked for their friendly neighbours on the east coast – Edinburgh. With not only one market but two, Glasgow has a lot to offer for locals and visitors. The two markets are located in St Enoch Square and George Square, and offer an array of European hot foods, sweets, handmade trinkets and alcohol (think hot ciders and mulled wine!).

Temple Hopping in Thailand

Thailand Temple

Nothing says Thailand more like a spectacular, jaw-dropping temple. Thailand was a country that had always been on my bucket list. I remember watching documentaries and history shows on television with my dad when I was younger and being in total awe at how different the country was to mines. One of the main elements that caught my eye was the history and grandeur of temples and Buddha statues.

Things To Do In Krakow’s Old Town

Krakow

When I first booked up to visit Krakow, I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. But I’m glad I did. Walking from the Glowny train station and through into the cobbled streets of the old town, it was easy to see that the streets were thriving with entertainment. Rows upon rows of shops lined the streets, as well as restaurants, bars and food vendors. I have no doubt that there is something to do here for everyone. Here a few of the main highlights that I recommend for first time and returning visitors to Krakow.

I want to use it is a way to portray my thoughts and feelings walking through a place of such suffering, violence and emancipation; and also explain why it is so important that you visit in person yourself. After all, this is the point of this blog: to spread the word.

A Local Food Tour of Krakow’s Old Town

Krakow Old Town Food Tour

One of the main reasons why I was so excited about visiting Poland was the food. I love Polish food, and I’m forever searching up and down the foreign food isle in my local supermarket for Polish food. Yum! One thing did worry me though, I’m quite a fussy eater, well not fussy, plain. I’m a plain eater. Despite this, I wasn’t difficult at all to find delicious food, whether from restaurants, cafes or street vendors. Here’s my personal food tour of Krakow.

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!

The Best Parks to Visit in Glasgow

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.

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.
