We spent the majority of our last day in Glasgow, though it wasn’t nearly long enough.
After an epic breakfast (thanks to our Airbnb host!), we spent the morning at the Kelvingrove Art Museum. First of all, it’s free; second of all, they offer a huge variety of interactive exhibits, which I really loved. I would love to see more museums with similar activities to help viewers engage with the art.
We also visited the People’s Palace, where I saw an exhibit on pop art portraits. Saw a portrait of Obama. Felt instantly sad.
For the last couple of hours, we simply wandered through the shopping district. We stocked up on some goodies to take home (Shortbread cookies…Reese’s…pork products!) and picked up a couple of souvenirs. We also stumbled upon a pretty cool street band.
All too soon, we had to hop back in the car to catch our flight back to Turkey from Edinburgh. I really didn’t feel like we did Glasgow justice…but I guess that just gives me an excuse to go back.
Scotland was such an incredible place! We kind of planned the trip at the last minute and I’m so glad we did! If you love friendly people, good food, rainbows, castles, dramatic views, and plaid, don’t miss out!
