On my first day in Glasgow the weather was beautiful and sunny, perfect to go out and explore a little bit. I started out by visiting Kelvingrove Park, which is in the west of Glasgow and right next to the university. The perfect place for some book reading, people watching or just a break if you want to rest your feet. As much as I love living in the city, I’m always happy if there is a little bit of green and nature to go to. If you ever go to Glasgow, you should definitely enjoy the relaxed atmosphere here and the great views of the university and the grand old buildings around.
Now I’m off to do some more exploring. This evening there’s a Ceilidh dance hosted for the students, so I’m curious about that as well. Has anybody of you ever tried dancing Ceilidh?
Yesterday I have arrived at my home for the next five months: Glasgow. After a week with Nate & Lucy in Sheffield and getting accustomed to living in Great Britain, I have taken the bus up north to Scotland. I’m both nervous and excited to start this new chapter, meeting new people and exploring a strange and beautiful country. I haven’t talked to many people yet, but it’s true: the scottish accent is HARD. I really hope I will get more than 50 percent of conversations soon.
Today was spend mostly relaxing from the journey yesterday and nestling into my new home. It’s ‚only‘ student accommodation, so the decorating possiblities are a bit limited, but I’m going to give my best with charity shop finds, flowers and pictures on the walls. My roommate hasn’t moved in yet, so I have the whole flat to myself. The kitchen is actually bigger than at home in Germany, so I hope we will get on well and have a few cooking parties here.
I love travelling, I love Britain, I love London. You can imagine, this past holiday has been one of my favourite trips ever (although it’s true that I say that everytime..). I’m already itching to go back and London is actually a place I could imagine moving one day. Maybe not forever, but about half a year is definitely on the bucket list! I’m slowly going through all of the photos my father and I took, so you can expect tons of travel posts in the next few weeks!
On Saturday, my family and I will be leaving for our summer holiday to England. One week in London, one week in Hastings. As you can probably imagine, I can hardly wait!
