Two Friday's ago I flew from Salt Lake to Tucson for a friend's birthday - and had an amazing time! Sunday I flew back to Salt Lake. Monday and Tuesday I flew from Salt Lake to Dallas and from Dallas to London and from London to Geneva. In Geneva I caught a train to Lausanne. On Wednesday, I got back on the train to Geneva and flew from Geneva to Istanbul.
I finally found the luggage I'd left here in Istanbul and got unpacked Thursday night. And then I spent the weekend exploring the city - and repacking. This morning (at the insane time of 5:50 AM) I'm getting on a plane to go from Istanbul to Amsterdam and then from Amsterdam to Glasgow. For anyone keeping track, that is well over 10,000 miles.
While, I'm very tired of airplanes and airports (and especially of packing.) I do see the light at the end of this travel tunnel - I get to spend a week in Glasgow. A new city and new country for me to explore (before I head back to Istanbul.)
Have you been here before? Any recommendations on what I should see or do? I have the entire day Saturday and most of Sunday before I leave to explore and if I'm lucky a bit of time an evening or two.
Here's a little Amy MacDonald, one of my favorite Scottish artists: This is the Life.
