Scotland 4: Day 4

Glasgow, Scotland | 09:51

For some reason, I had trouble falling asleep last night. Not sure what that’s about- I only woke up a few minutes ago. I think that a 20 oz Coke isn’t the smartest thing for me to do, right before bedtime, that is.
I look out the window, and it seems like it may be a rainy day today again. The rain doesn’t bother me, for the most part. It is somewhat expected- as I brought along a wind-breaker jacket and that umbrella. So far, it’s been overcast mornings, but hopefully, it will clear up soon. I wonder if every day is going to be like this. I guess that April showers bring May flowers. Too bad, I’m headed home at the very beginning of May.

It’s crazy cold in Glasgow today. It’s raining (like it has been every morning so far), and there’s a strong wind out there. I just trudged through it to grab an early lunch at Pizza Hut (sadly, I missed the free breakfast) and the wind was so strong, I knew it wanted to knock me over. I think I may stay inside for a bit today and wait to see what the storms going to do. I hope it lifts soon. It’s my fault for making plans, I guess.

The rain finally stopped and so even though the wind was still crazy, I went out and went for a walk. I first stopped by Central Station to grab my train ticket for the 2nd. I prepaid for all my tickets, so all I have to do is go to the kiosk. I enter the confirmation code that was emailed to me and scan the card I used to pay. It’s a very cool thing to be able to do this. This way, I don’t have to carry all my tickets with me for the entire trip.

I walked west along the River Clyde today (yesterday I’d walked east), and it was beautiful. The entire time the wind acted like it wanted to push me into the river. I had to keep my hand on my head- so I wouldn’t lose my hat into the water. Still, there were cyclists and joggers all around.

This afternoon, I went back to the Brunswick Hotel for dinner I had the Spaghetti Carbonara. Soooo good, it was! I’ll probably have to go back there this afternoon, I went back to the Brunswick Hotel for dinner and had the Spaghetti Carbonara. I’ll probably have to go back there for dinner tomorrow and get something else. I needed to hear some live music this evening, so I hung out in a pub. The band was good, not great. They were admittedly loud, though… they’ve got that going for them. I was able to hang out with some hostel mates who are from some other part of Scotland. They were friendly and told me that American accents were sexy- I am proud to be an American. I’ll say to you- Scottish accents are sexier- till I get up into the highlands and can’t understand anybody unless they speak very slowly. I mean, “Huh?” and tilt my head a lot.
