Two Days in Glasgow aka Gotham City

October 19, 2014 § 2 Comments

How I didn’t expect my short trip in Glasgow to go:                       faking an immediate bereavement at midnight with my Swedish coworker, Johan, insisting we had to fly to Stockholm in the morning– receptionist doing his best to seem concerned but implying there was no unbooking in our future. Our accommodation was truly bad, but we survived. Twenty minutes after our stunt, we giddily took to the streets, grief-less, hungy, drunk.

We met up with our other coworkers, engaged and now on their way to Thailand (Alice: “Do you blog about us?” Me: Yes. Here. Now. I hope you’re safe.) who introduced us to their friend from Auckland, now living in G-Town, who did a seriously good job of showing us the city. I’m doing a lot of nationality and name dropping here, but all I’m saying: there is something better than exploring a good place—and that is exploring it in good company. In the words of Johan himself, it was a proper good time.

And, Johannesburg, if you’re reading this, know that I’m still so proud. (He performed, on a whim, at an open-mic night in a pub the Clash used to frequent.) And know that I still want a second burger from BookClub.  (Not that it matters, but I haven’t ordered meat in a restaurant in the past, err, six years. Big moment.)

See, Eat, Drink, Do:

If you find yourself in Glasgow, take this list with you. Actually just take me with you. Please.
