Glasgow Monopoly!

On Saturday we decided to do something a little different. Since I'm not great at navigating the city, Sean thought it would be fun to show me more of it. So we got out the Glasgow version of Monopoly and literally made our way round the board/city. Turned out to be a rather fun day! (ok at some points there wasn't a lot there so we cheated and took pics of the street signs - totally allowed!)
The itinery
We brought Sean's flatmate (Michael) Fay to share the experience
And of course Red!









I was trying to take a pic of what appeared to be the scummiest hotel ever and Sean was trying to stop me showing Glasgow in a bad light... He also thinks I say 'scummy' too much... but it perfectly describes where I live!
Red enjoys some typical Glasgow wine
Had to bypass the tour :(

We couldn't find the Irn Bru factory and the road to Auchentoshan was shut, but we got the rest done and squeezed in 2 stuffed crusts at Pizza Hut (fyi, the Pepperoni one is better than the garlic butter one!)


A day well spent I think!

Now its only 2 days til I'm on hols and then its all London, The Script and NEW YORK! So if anyone knows of any must-see spots in the Big Apple please let me know - Sean's mum bought me a guide book but I'm having the hardest time picking out places we have to see. I definately have to visit 30 Rockefeller Centre for the NBC tour, but other than that I'm open to suggestions! Also having a hard time deciding what to pack - last week it managed to be 23c and this week its snowing, aah!

  1. That looks like so much fun. Love all the Red pics! I was quite excited by the Pollok House sign too - my friend Jennie used to work there :)

    Have an amazing time in NYC. I've never been so I can't offer any advice but I'm sure you won't be short of things to do.

  4. Looks like fun. That hotel isn't scummy, it's just dilapidated, you wanna visit where I live!
    No tips for New York, only been to Boston but That's Not My Ahe (in my blog roll) goes a lot and featured a fabulous flea market last week. xxx
