    A Portuguese living in GLASGOW and a list of lessons

    Hey hey! It has been ONE YEAR living in GLASGOW. Where does the time go?! Here is a list of what it has taught me: 1 – There is no such thing as “couple of drinks” 2 – And “I only had a few drinks”, means you had 8! 3 – My heart is terrified of a deep fried Mars bar. 4 – Everybody loves beer, but no one really likes Tennent’s lager. 5 – Blootered, hammered, steamin’, plastered and just plain pished… all these words mean “drunk”. 6 – The winter lasts 355 days of the year. 7 – Off those 355, 15 days you don’t drive: you slide…

    Roadtrip in Scotland – waterproof tent?!

    Day 3 Drop, Drop, Drop… I wake up with water dropping on my head. Without moving I look around, what is happening?!

There are no Midges! So it’s true, they don’t like the sun. We climb the mountain, following the sound of the water running and we end up finding the perfect place for a bath, well a sort of bath! With our bikini, towels and our nature-friendly-soap, here we go! The water is nicely cold and refreshes our body and soul. …………………………………….. After a lovely breakfast – picnic mode – we get back on the road with…

    Road Trip in Scotland – Driving on the left

    Day 1 I have to admit: for the last couple of weeks I couldn’t stop thinking on the adventure we were about to start now: Road Trip in Scotland and wild camping for 6 days!! Marie and Thibaud came from France to London to visit me and last night we got the National Express coach from London to Glasgow – a 10 hours journey that we’ve got for as little as £22. 7:20 am, we arrived in Glasgow… the city is slowly awaking up for another day. The downtown of Glasgow is not that big and there is not that much to see, but we found people from here very…
