Glasgow is a city I didn't expect to fall in love with. It's definitely not one I'd have visited if I hadn't had to go for work. I think a lot of people shun Glasgow in favour of Edinburgh and while I do think the capital is the prettier of the two, Glasgow has its fair share of beautiful buildings. Especially if you look up! It's definitely has a lot more to offer than the image of an ugly, run-down, drizzly city I had unfairly built up in my head. It did rain a lot though, and for context that's coming from someone who lives in Manchester.
I only really had the evenings to explore so there wasn't much time to visit any museums or do a great deal of sightseeing, but I managed to squeeze in an open top bus tour with some friends (expensive, but highly recommended), spend an evening walking up to the Necropolis (all fun and games until I ran into somebody in a gimp mask swigging wine from the bottle) and eat lots of vegan food (more on that here).
I feel like I didn't really delve deep enough into the city to write a comprehensive guide, but I thought I'd share some of the photos I took during my stay. If nothing else they'll serve as a reminder for me to visit again in the future.
