Scotland: Glasgow

After spending 2 days in Edinburgh we took the hour long train to Glasgow for a day of fun. We stayed at the Sandyford Hotel, which is about 2 miles from the city center. You can take buses into the city center very easily, but we ended up walking all the way from our hotel to Glasgow Cathedral on the other side of town. Sadly, by the time we walked there the Cathedral had just closed. Boo! We still were able to look around it and take wonderful pictures. We also spent a while walking around the Glasgow Necropolis which is connected to the Cathedral.





We had a good time in Glasgow, it had a much more laid back feel to it. It also appeared to have a huge night life, which really surprised me on our walk back to the hotel.

It's a good thing we did so much walking in the cities, because we ate like starving people. Especially Hal and I who had unlimited access to western food for the first time in 8 months. For dinner in Glasgow we ate at the Konaki Greek Tavern.  It was super close to our hotel and was fabulous. We ordered 2 chicken kabobs with potatoes and veggies, and hummus and pita and stuffed ourselves silly on wonderful greek food. I'd seriously recommend eating there if you're in the area.

It looks amazing! Yay for getting to eat food! I bet it was such a treat compared to what you've been having to eat over the last months.
