A sunny day in Glasgow

Glasgow’s West End

Good evening guys! I hope everything is fine with you. We have our friends over, so we are out and about all day long visiting and eating. What’s better than that?!

Yesterday we walked almost 8 miles on the beach, it was warm, there was no wind… Pure heaven.

On Monday we went to Glasgow to meet my friend and her two kids and we spent a nice, sunny day in the city, even if it was a bit windy. We had lunch at the Willow tea room on Buchanan Street, I had an avocado on toast with eggs.

The view from the Willow tree…Lovely isn’t? 😛
My friend had this amazing cheesecake

After lunch we went straight to Lush, but I didn’t buy anything because I’ve still got two bath bombs at home. We then headed to the GoMa, the Glasgow Museum of Modern Art, which we visited quickly because it’s not huge.

After the museum, we went to Hillhead with the subway to visit that part of town and Glasgow University, which I find absolutely wonderful. It’s the second time in two weeks that we go for a walk there. It really makes you want to start a Master’s degree….. ha! Every time I’m in those beautiful courtyards I wonder about graduating there… It really looks like Hogwarts, to me. My grandma told me that her brother, my uncle, graduated in Glasgow University! I’ve never know that for twenty-three years!

After visiting the Chapel of the University, we got the subway back to the centre.

Let’s hope that the weather will keep being as sunny and beautiful, yesterday and today really were special. My guests brought me good luck!

Have you ever been to Glasgow? What do you think about it? Tell me in the comments if you wish. Personally I prefer Edinburgh, because of the architecture, the castle and the streets in general, but I’m starting to enjoy this city as well and I hope to live it as much as possible this summer and in the next months. Beer gardens, marathons and festivals, here I come!

Have a great evening, dear readers.
