Weekend in the City!

Hello lovelies,

So today I'm bringing a new feature post that I hope to do regularly: weekend in the city! I am currently trying to be more active and tick some fun things to do off my wish list! So this post will be all about getting active and things to see and do in Glasgow!

This Saturday we decided to visit the Burrell Collection & Pollok Park. The Burrell Collection is a small museum with a mix of displays within the beautiful and massive confines of Pollok park. We went there with the intention of a long walk but decided to check out the museum too. These types of museums are not really my thing, I easily get bored just looking at things and I'm really not nuts on historical stuff! (as you may be able to tell by this gloriously inappropriate picture below!


We had a look around and ate in the cafe, I have to say I wasn't a massive fan of the set up, and in my opinion it was very expensive. Although it should be noted museum entrance was free (highly unusual) and there was ample parking for £1 all day with plenty of picnic areas if you wanted to bring your own food & drink.

I was a huge fan of the beautiful surroundings on the walk, especially knowing how little we actually managed to take in due to the sheer size of the park. I was shocked that I managed to walk for around 2 hours, which added to the active part of the plans!


Later, I done some charity shop moseying around on Victoria Road. The charity shops here are excellent, especially for books! I'm forever finding almost brand new copies of stuff, and even though I was a little short on cash I picked up Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World and Ian McEwan's The Wasp Factory which both looked virtually untouched!

Lastly, we picked up the ingredients to make vegan tapas which was a huge hit, and I'll definitely be doing this again! I am planning to share the recipe for this amazing gauc on here soon so keep an eye out, it was SO good!

We also decided to finally watch Imitation Game which I enjoyed, however although I was very emotionally invested in the story it was more so in the real story I knew of Alan Turing, which may sound a bit daft so I plan to review this in more detail! It was definitely a good film pick for Andrew and I as it had the history for Andrew and the technology, psychology and philosophy for me!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! If you have any places or ideas of things to do let me know below and I'll add them to my massive fun to do list! Watch this space!
