Galavanting around Glasgow

After Aberdeen we hopped on the train to Glasgow.  We checked into our hotel which thankfully had a fan blowing full force an windows wide open, cooling the room off.  You see, most hotels in Scotland don’t have air-conditioning, they don’t need it.  Well, usually.  As previously mentioned, the UK has been experiencing a bit of a “hot” spell.  Highs in the 80’s are great but it’s amazing how hot a room can get with little ventilation.  Anyhow, we enjoyed a couple days in Glasgow.  Sadly, I got sick our last day so we missed out on the museum I really wanted to see.  Despite that, we had a blast and would go back (in combo with Edinburgh probably).
