Grateful to have a second chance to revisit Scotland and England. Really glad I didn’t stay too long because the Canadian dollar does not stretch far in the UK.

My favourite spots:

  • Glasgow University
  • Kelvin Walkway
  • Kelvingrove Museum
  • Maggie’s Food Truck
  • Oran Mor
  • Ashton Lane
  • Ruchill Park
  • Buchanan Street Shopping
  • Oban and 3 Isles – Fresh Seafood: Langoustines, Osyters, Mussels, and more
  • London – Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street Shopping #TOPSHOP


  • Didn’t make it to Edinburgh for the underground vaults
  • The Royal Exchange Square didn’t have sky lights (only during Christmas :()

Tips and Lessons:

  • a 3.5 star hotel in Scotland is nicer than a 3.5 star hotel in Portugal
  • the weather in Scotland is not hot and sunny like I imagined in the summer (June at least) – pack a waterproof jacket and warm clothes for sure
  • don’t let mean tour ladies tell you what you can’t wear on tour – I managed to do the three isles tour (staffa, mull, iona) in Oban with my slippery Keds
  • I was able to live off of wifi

People make Glasgow – NICE PEOPLE
