Pushing Through the First Day

Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

Had a little hiccup with the car rental: I thought I had booked an automatic, they thought I booked a manual. They ended up getting us an automatic Jaguar with all the fancy bells and whistles, including a GPS. Guess the GPS we brought is redundant now…

Figured out how to drive on the “wrong” side of the road. My constant mantra is “stay on the left, stay on the left, stay on the left”. I’m finding the in-car GPS really doesn’t give much of a heads up for upcoming turns. I’m curious if we can program that. Might try using our own GPS simultaneously to see if there really is a difference or if it’s just me being REALLY cautious over here.

Parking so far can be difficult to find, at least in the university area. We did a self-guided tour of the campus, which was actually quite lovely, especially considering how tired we were. The park areas around the university are nice, too.

Made it to our B&B: Manor Park Guest House. Lovely so far. Did not anticipate our room would be on the third floor. Not a problem were we not so tired. Actually, not a problem anyway. It was nice to have a shower.

Supper at St. Louis Cafe was fantastic. Fish cakes, gumbo, and nachos…

And to top off the day, yes, we managed to get a geocache! Woohoo!
