Scotland is one of my favourite travel destinations.
From its beautiful nature to super friendly people with strong accents – I have great memories associated with every trip and my recent trip – a long weekend in Glasgow was no exception.
While Glasgow has never been on top of my travel list – after visiting it for the first time this month, I would definitely go back. If I were to describe it in three words, I’d say it was lively, surprising and underrated.
Reflecting back on my long weekend in Glasgow, the first thing that comes to my mind – is how super friendly and chatty Glaswegians are. Coming from London, it was a bit of a shock to be honest. In London, people are so busy – they barely look up from their phones. In Glasgow, everywhere you went people were up for a chat, interested in where you’re from, what you’re doing in Glasgow and what you’ll do in Glasgow.
I can’t believe I’m writing this but it’s so true: I’ve spend most of my long weekend TALKING to people – and I absolutely LOVED it.
There’s a real warmth in the city as a whole and that’s enough to make me want to go back!
My next big surprise… how beautiful Glasgow is! I wandered around a lot, marvelled at the stunning Victorian architecture, medieval cathedral and broad, cobbled shopping streets.
Least but not least, the food…oh the food! Glasgow is a real gem for foodies – it has something for everyone, from gourmet offerings to street food – Glasgow’s food scene is on the rise.
So, should you visit Glasgow? Absolutely.
