Scotland 8: Day 22

3.23.20 | Glasgow, Scotland | 20:53 Today was a bittersweet feeling. Sweet because it’s always nice to be in this country that I love so much. Bitter that today is my last full day in Scotland. Also, I’m having to cut my trip short. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this was only the... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 21

3.22.20 | Glasgow, Scotland | 19:45 I didn’t get a wink of sleep last night. I don’t know what it is- just couldn’t clear my head, with all of this virus nonsense going on. It’s not that I’m even worried. It’s essential to be safe and take care of yourself, but I feel that people... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 15

03.16.20 | Dalmally, Scotland | 22:03 I’ve been watching the Coronavirus numbers rise from http://ncov2019.live. At least I’m going north. Maybe the virus will ignore the north for a few more days. I’ve already adjusted my trip a couple of times, and when though I was supposed to have a go in Europe, I’m now... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 14

03.15.20 | Glasgow, Scotland | When I woke this morning, I had a message from my friend James.

Apple Buchanan Street is only a few blocks from me, but they are the more popular destination and had no appointments today. So I get to the store, and five employees are standing on the doorway. “Didn’t... Continue Reading →

Scotland 7: Day 23

03.24.19 | Glasgow, Scotland | 19:53 I woke up this morning with plenty of time to walk to church. According to Google Maps, it would have taken me about an hour and a half. I was up for the challenge. I guess I got started later than I thought because all of a sudden, the... Continue Reading →

Scotland 7: Day 22

03.23.19 | Glasgow, Scotland | 22:34 Today turned out to be another great day! I decided to go for a walk and explore the west side of Glasgow. I'm already staying further west than I normally do, but I walked all the way over to the University of Glasgow. What a beautiful campus! While I... Continue Reading →

Scotland 7: Day 21

03.22.19 | Glasgow, Scotland | 22:32 Today I took the opportunity to check something else off my bucket list (my yet-to-be-revealed, second bucket list, to be exact).
