It’s coming up to Christmas (I’m scheduling this in advance!) and I’m making my annual trek to Glasgow!
Not much of a trek as my mum is doing the driving but the whole journey is about 5hrs. So we’re setting off on Thursday afternoon, stopping overnight on the way and then completing the rest of the journey on Friday morning. We’ll have Friday afternoon and Saturday in Glasgow and then spend Sunday driving back. That means I’ll be away from home for three nights. And the weather has got a little chilly!
So here it is. I’m taking a thick green hoody from Naketano, and a blur stripey jumper also from Naketano. I love Naketano. They no longer have a webshop. This saddens me. I’ve also got an enjoyably flowery shirt from Monki (also like me some Monki). I have a red long sleeve top, and a pink one. my blue jeans, PJs, tights, socks, and underwear. I’m also taking my big infinity scarf, gloves, hat (not pictured), my keys, phone, purse. I’ve also got a couple of Christmas books, one is a non-fiction history of Christmas and one is a Christmas murder mystery.
Non-picture is my Blacks 30l rucksack that I always use now to carry my stuff. My little day bag (always take a day bag). And a bags and bags of presents!
- Siam Park Tenerife –This is the awesome water park in Tenerife, spend all day walking around soaking wet in your swimming costume and you’ll never feel cold!
- Walk Through Kirkby Stephen- This was our little November outing for boyfriend’s birthday, so it wasn’t super warm and there wasn’t an abundance of beautiful foliage but it was his special day.
- Glasgow Eateries- Naked Soup and Topolabamba
We found a couple of fun places to eat in Glasgow when we went to visit sister in March, Topolabamba was particularly yummy I seem to recall.
- Rome Colloseum and Roman Forum- Probably the most impressive and recommendable was the Roman Forum and Colloseum in Rome.
- Walk from Settle to Stainforth- And one of our summer walks, just a shame that weeks of heavy rain made it a mud bath in parts.

I went to visit sister and brother-in-law in early December, and we took my niece to visit Mrs Claus as Pollock House. My niece is about 20 months old and I think the experience was somewhat baffling for her but exploring the house was fun. Continue reading
We got the subway to the West End of Glasgow to find some more independent shops, then what you get in the centre of Glasgow.
I don’t have too many pictures but there are a few interesting vintage and antique shops off Byres Road, down Dowanside Road. We had a fun look around but didn’t actually buy anything in the end. Also we saw some cats sitting on a car.
I like sports, and I’m kind of collecting stadiums as I travel the world. In particular Olympic ones, although I haven’t got very many as they’re in unhelpful places around the world that I don’t visit ever.
Not an Olympic Stadium but the Commonwealth Stadium in Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games (it’s the Emirates and Sir Chris Hoy Arena). It had been a heat wave but the weather turned decidedly more Scottish for our trip to the Stadium and we queued for our train in the rain. We had tickets for the Badminton and it was fun but after 5hrs of badminton we were ready to leave. I also tried Irn Bru ice cream which is amazing and, annoyingly, not available in England 😦
