    Nach einer herrlichen Fahrt mit vielen Kurven und wenig Verkehr durch den Galloway Nationalpark und einer kurzen Dusche von oben sind wir gut angekommen. Aktuell sitzen wir im Munro's bei Strongbow und Maltsmith und warten auf unsere Burger 😀🍽Read more

    Glasgow

    August 13, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    Der erste Tag ist immer etwas Besonderes. Uns blieb viel Zeit zum Frühstücken, Packen und Loslegen, da der Flug erst kurz vor 6 uhr abends startete. Ryanairs neuste Strategie zur Gewinnmaximierung liegt darin, selbst für die Sitzplatzauswahl Geld zu verlangen. Somit landeten wir durch Zufallsgenerator in vier verschiedenen Reihen. Doch wie es der Zufall wollte, konnten wir uns doch immerhin jeweils zu zweit setzen, da niemand mit seinem Platz zufrieden war. 2h später waren wir auch schon da. Eine kurze Busfahrt in die Stadt, ein kurzer Fußweg zur Unterkunft und um 20 Uhr Ortszeit bezogen wir unsere kleine zweistöckige Wohnung, welche durchaus großzügig und offen wirkt. Der Hunger trieb uns zu "handmade burgers", was früher offensichtlich ein Kino war, und der Durst danach in die "schilling brewery". Man war das lecker! Da fällt es fast schon ein bisschen schwer, dass es morgen früh direkt auf die Piste gen Norden geht!Read more

    Bei Ryanair kostet alles Geld. Wir saßen auch meistens getrennt. Quatar-Airlines war genau das Gegenteil. Da bekommt man sogar Whisky und Cognac. Hat was. 😎

    Off to the Big Apple

    May 22, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    First leg of my 2019 trip - Glasgow to New York - and I have to fly via Manchester, as Thomas Cook doesn’t fly direct to the USA until later in the season. An early start to catch the 06.35 flight from Glasgow (thanks for the 04.30 lift, Mags) on a busy propeller Flybe aircraft.

    All going to schedule until we are sitting on the runway at Manchester Airport ready for take off, when a passenger takes unwell and we have to taxi back to the stand and wait for almost two hours till they find and remove her luggage from the hold, and then empty and search the overhead lockers in case she had left something.

    Ready to partake of a tasty mid morning snack, I had to forgo this due to the announcement that another passenger had a nut allergy. Ah well, mint humbugs and San Pellegrino it was till dinner was served.

    The large, black lady seated along from me opened her carpet bag and produced an enormous bundle of leaflets, and when she saw me looking, she offered me one entitled ‘Do You Think You Might Need Jesus?’ I politely declined, and she spent the next 7 hours reading the Psalms of David in a huge font on her laptop. Frequently she would find something really amusing and would burst into uncontrollable laughter, with an occasional ‘Hallelujah’ thrown in for good measure.

    From JFK airport I was advised to take the Air Train and change at Jamaica for the E line subway to Manhattan. This reminded me of a restaurant at the Clydeside in Glasgow called Change at Jamaica which stayed open into the wee small hours, and where we sometimes went with Dixie Carr from the Apollo Players after a late rehearsal. I hadn’t realised it was probably named after this travel instruction from JFK.

    Given the length of this trip, I felt I should economise on accommodation where possible, so my NYC digs were at the YMCA - I can hear you singing along Y-M-C-A. My room is small but clean and comfortable, and thankfully, given the heat, it comes with air con as well as free WiFi.

    Tonight I hit the town and discovered Times Square awash with the military, all posing to get group photos taken. Fleet Week in NYC is a seven-day celebration to honor the members of the United States Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps. Well hello, sailors!

    A Broadway show next was a must, and I managed to get a good single ticket at the TKTS Half Price Booth for TOOTSIE - The Musical. It was terrific - well deserving of its current 11 Tony Award nominations. My American Adventure has well and truly begun!

    Glasgow auf japanisch. Fotos vom Bus aus, kein Stopp.
    Glasgow ist ein großes Migrationszentrum und hat viele Studenten mit wenig Kaufkraft. Armin erklärt: Vor dem 2. Weltkrieg "Barock" als Überbleibsel von den Hannoveraner Königen, danach "Barack" , einfallslose graue Einheitsarchitektur.
    Die Stadt liegt am Fluss Clyde
    und hat, wegen des hannoveranischen Einflusses, gerade Straßen. Einst Sitz der East India Company, das Gebäude beherbergt heute Teile der Stadtverwaltung, wurde von Semper gebaut, erinnert an das Rathaus von Hamburg.
    Zum Abschluss spielt Armin Catherine Jenkins (" Hofsängerin" der Queen") Time to say good by ab.

    Waking around the streets of Glasgow we wandered around the Henderson's old stomping grounds. We visited their apartment then did some shopping in Merchant City before having a pub lunch. We then visited Cup/Gin 71 before walking the streets and having some cocktails.Read more

    20000 steps!

    August 10, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    Made the most of our first day here by walking all over this bit of the city. It's dry so far... Don't think that's going to last. Managed to check in early at Fraser Suites, unpacked, ate our sandwiches, did a wee food shop and set off. Lots of interesting things to look at en route to George Square, the Cathedral and the Necropolis, finished off by much-needed drink at Gandolfis.Read more
