Day 2 in Glasgow! (Monday Mar 24)

After all the traveling a good nights sleep was well enjoyed! ๐Ÿ™‚ We had our breakfast in the hotel and then went off to the university to officially meet the GCU people! Then we went to tour the beautiful city of Glasgow. We went on tour bus with our hosts: Nicky, Jack, Nicola, Ashley, Nabila, and Shona. I cannot even describe how breathtaking the city is. Each building looks so stunning. The older architecture is still there for every building.ย  The tour bus was actually a double decker and we sat on the top – on the open side. ๐Ÿ˜€ It got quite windy but it was worth it! A lot of the sites were closed unfortunately today, but we got to see them from the outside. We did stop at a few places and go inside, such as the Riverside Museum (basically a transport museum) and Glasgow University (astonishingly, Glasgow Uni actually looks like Hogwarts!). We ate at a restaurant called Ketchup which is known around for its burgers and special ketchup and it was good! Since it was a beautiful day, and we were very lucky to have it, we decided to walk home through Kelvin Grove Park. We had a great day and saw so much, I can’t wait to see what else this week has in store for us!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

GCU!!! :D

Finally Here!

After many hours of traveling we finally have reached to Glasgow, Scotland!!! A great British Airways flight to Heathrow, a minor setback during security, and an short flight into Glasgow finally brought us to our destination. We are all so excited to be here and the GCU group is so nice! As soon as we got to the airport in Scotland we met Julie and the hosting team, and got on our way to the hotel. After a bit of settling in we got to explore the city and grabbed dinner. The city is so gorgeous. We walked though and each building is just breath taking. Everyone was pretty much exhausted from traveling so we called a bit of an early night. But in the morning we will be fully charged and ready to officially begin our amazing one week journey here in Scotland! ๐Ÿ˜€

Some pictures of our travels to Glasgow and some of the city ๐Ÿ™‚
