Glasgow, Northern Ireland

Glasgow Art MuseumGlasgow – Inland except that the River Clyde accommodates large ships that are built here, lowland, business capital, the old city is dying but the new city is thriving, the medieval university is exciting.

Especially interesting to us – the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum was built as a replica of the Spanish Baroque styled Santiago de Compostela Cathedral in Spain which holds a special place in our hearts as it was the destination of our two Camino’s.

The Lake District in England

London after dinner, sleep and breakfast on a flight from San Francisco we dropped a big bag of clothes at our hotel and hopped a train to the Lake District – spending the first night in Kendal and then Bowness On Windermere.

The train ride was rich with rolling bright green lush hills dotted by woolly white sheep and hearty cows – all framed by miles upon miles of stone walls.  It was as if Monet painted our views.

A cold cloudy day was the perfect backdrop for a boat ride to the town of Ambleside famous for being the home of Beatrix Potter – this year her 150th birthday.
