After a bit of a work crunch before leaving, I made it to the red-eye and had an agreeable flight from Ottawa to London. The person next to me was nice enough, but was a bit of a flailer while sleeping. We arrived in London on time, and got a great approach in which took us over the Thames, Big Ben, the Palace, and downtown London. BMI was right on schedule, and Air Canada should take a couple notes on how to run a value-priced flight that keeps customers happy.
I got into Glasgow at 14:30 local, and Karen met me at the airport. She had everything taken care of for getting home, and it was only a 15-20 minute ride by bus and train to her flat. Ee met up with a bunch of folks for beverages and dinner at Waxy’s, and Ian, Steve, Javier, and Anne are super nice folks. The last couple days we’ve seen downtown including shopping districts, the uni’s, the botanical gardens, and government houses.Very nice city.
We head out tomorrow morning for Edinburgh, and I’m really looking forward to it.
I’ll try and update a little bit over the next few days, but don’t expect a lot of detail til later. Having a great time, and I’m glad I’m here.
