As I mentioned in my last post, this time last week I was in Glasgow! We got the sleeper bus from Cardiff at 11.45pm on Thursday and it was kinda weird! It was pretty busy and it's so small and cramped but it cost us £5 each so I really cannot complain! I got about 5/6 hours sleep and woke up in Glasgow at 8am Friday. Since I came back I've had a flu which has kept me in bed but today I'm feeling a little better thankfully :)
We had to wait until 1pm until our Air BnB flat was ready to move in to so we went and got a full Scottish breakfast (lorn, black pudding, potato scones) and it was SO good, really got me set for the day! We then headed for a quick coffee before we hopped on the City tour bus which takes you around all over the city's tourist hotspots in 2 hours. We could put our bags down, sit down and take in the sights of this beautiful city - perfect!
The tour actually had a stop pretty much outside our apartment which was ready (I'll do a review post on that soon and share some pictures of it!) so a quick drop off, cup of tea and a nap (of course!) and we were ready to walk around Suchiehall Street and the surrounding areas in search of local places to drink, eat and be merry!
First up we went to visit Glasgow's 'best burger' at Nice n' Sleazy by MeatHammer. It was really delicious! I went for a swiss cheese, burger sauce and pickle number which was HUGE, delicious and came with triple cooked chips and we also got a side of deep fried mac n' cheese.
After a couple Buckfast and Cherry cocktails here we headed for a Still Game cocktail (I had a Winston) and to a cute Tiki bar too!
There was a night on at The Art School but I got tired halfway through, grabbed some extra salty chips and headed back to the flat to pass out :p
Stick around for Day 2!
