Walking around Glasgow

Lunch

We ate lunch at Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK), which was quite delicious!

We dropped our bags at Glasgow Central Station and stopped for a coffee. My espresso cup was comically small:

Needless to say I finished it fairly quickly.


Necropolis

Garrett and Vikram went to look at the Scottish Football Museum and I had a wander around the city.

Route to and through Glasgow Necropolis

I walked towards the Glasgow Necropolis because I had seen pictures of it that looked interesting. The route I picked was supposed to pass through the Glasgow Cathedral. I took a panorama of what I thought was the cathedral:

Not Glasgow Cathedral

However about 5 minutes later, I saw a much grander building, the real cathedral!

Lots of pictures of Glasgow Cathedral

Here's another one! This bridge took me from the Cathedral to the Necropolis

The pictures just keep coming

This one is my favorite

Selfie with Glasgow Cathedral

Near the cathedral I took a quick selfie with James White (some dude):

I crossed over a bridge and headed to the middle of Glasgow:

The necropolis had some great views:

It also had some great graves:

This picture was supposed to be of the graves, but Glasgow Cathedral stole the spotlight:

I took some panoramas to show just how many graves there were because I’m addicted to taking panoramas:

More graves

Some lucky dead people got extremely cool looking graves, which were more like monuments than traditional graves.

I took my photo with some statues:

Me and a grave; haircut needed

I looked inside one of the fancy grave buildings and saw what looked to be some weeping angels:

Don't blink!

I took one final selfie with a statue and left:

Walk along the River Clyde

The next part of my walk took me alone the River Clyde:

I also saw a Scottish BBC building:

I saw signs to a “Tall Ship” and had to investigate.

This way to the Tall Ship!

It was pretty tall, but not as spectacular as I had hoped:

I took a subway back to Glasgow Central. I was careful to go in the right subway:

Return to London

We flew back to London and checked into our next Airbnb at around 10:15 PM. We had a relaxing evening and then went to sleep.
