Glasgow, Scotland

We unfortunately only got one full day in Glasgow, but we definitely made sure to make the most out of it.

On our walk throughout the city we ran into some traditional Scottish music.
This is the main square in Glasgow. It is called the Style Mile as all of the shops are located here.
We hopped on a City Tour hop-on, hop-off bus. And sat for about an hour and a half learning about all the beautiful historical buildings and areas of Glasgow.
All of the buildings in Glasgow are very gothic looking, and very old. It was really fascinating to see, and it also was really interesting to find out that both Sir John A. MacDonald (Canada’s first Prime Mister) and McGill (who founded McGill University in Montreal) were both from Glasgow. 
If you check out the statue in the middle of these photos, you can see that there are pylons on their heads. Apparently they are removed everyday, but people keep putting them back on anyways. This has been going on for years.

This is the University of Glasgow. Absolutely stunning. 
After the bus your we did another kind of tour of the city. We went down Ashton Lane where we found a row full of pubs. 
Glasgow is actually a lot colder than London was, and we had to be in pants and sweaters all day. The cold arctic wind wasn’t being too nice to us, so we needed to find a way to get nice and warm. So we decided it would be a great idea to get the most out of Scotland and do as the locals do and head to the pub! 
Cider was usually our drink of choose, but we dabbled here and there with some interesting favorites like the “Zombie”.
The shell of the passion fruit is on fire. Was delicious! 
Today we woke up early and packed all of our things and went out for our last meal in the United Kingdom before we head off to the tropical Spanish party island of Ibiza.
Fish and chips seemed the most appropriate. 
Now we are finally off to some sunshine and relaxation for the next few days! Beach here we come!!!
