ok. sorry i’ve been absent for a few days. the crazyness of packing, leaving, flying, arriving was almost a bit too much for me. So, I’m finally here. Glasgow!. Well, its a lot how I imagined it to be. Except for the weather which has actually been nice (I even got a few sporadic periods of sunshine!). Things have gone relatively smooth. I arrived Friday morning with more luggage than I can possibly carry but I managed to throw everytthing onto a cart and drag accross Glasgow International Airport. Customs & Immigration went completely smooth, I was really pleased & happpy. No weird questions or hassles.
so far I have enjoyed the city very much. its a fairly handsome city with lots of shops & weird/interesting stores. one of the things that has striken me the most is that you dont see a lot of people in the streets. but it might just be that i’ve done that at odd time and/or the weekend.
These nights I’ve been staying at the Glasgow Hostel while I look for a flat. Great place really. Friendly staff & convenient facilities. This being said though, CANNOT wait until I find my own place. You cant really beat having you own room. I also learned that the single most important thing to bring to a hostel is: EARPLUGS!. Please if you dont know this, never forget. Because you can either get the super-loud snoring-person or the stay-up-late-and-make-lots-of-noise-person or the laugh-while-sleeping person (which is really, really freaky).
Ok, well, all in all, I just wanted to drop a few lines to say how things are going. Im slowly adapting to the change. Although I really miss my friends & my ladyfriend Amelie, I try to take things day by day.
Ok ok greetings from glasgow & I will write a bit more soon. until then,
