My girlfriend and I had spent the weekend at a friend's wedding. This involved three nights of celebrations and plenty of alcohol. Therefore, as we took the bus to Glasgow airport we were looking forward to slumping into our seats and snoozing our way back to Nice (where we live) via a short stopover at Gatwick in London. We were both keen to get back as we had to work the following morning and wanted to get a good night's sleep. As you might expect, the sight of the word 'CANCELLED' next to our flight was not the most welcome. This was the beginning of one of the most unpleasant travel experiences I have endured. Once we had seen the announcement on the departures board we made our way to the British Airways desk where we were greeted by a very well-dressed and very polite gentleman. He assured us that we would be able to get to London that evening. When we informed him that we were connecting to Nice his face fell and he informed us that he was not sure if that would be possible. He apologised profusely once more and asked one of the Customer Service Assistants to begin looking in to whether it would be possible to reach France that evening. He instilled confidence and it felt as though BA were trying to provide good service. However, at no point did he explain why the flight had been cancelled, which we found rather frustrating.After speaking to the man, we were passed to the Customer Service Assistant. She told us that we would not be able to go to Gatwick, but that we might be able to get to Heathrow and connect to Nice from there. The problem was that the flight to Heathrwo was delayed, which meant it would be touch and go as to whether we could make the connection. After much deliberation, BA informed us that it would not be possible and that we would have to stay in a hotel. Naturally, this disappointed us. Our disappointment changed to anger when we arrived in London however. As we got off the plane, we were greeted by BA ground staff who were waiting to escort other passengers from the plane to the connection to Nice. We asked the ground staff why but were no explanations forthcoming.The ground staff were unable to help us, so we went to a BA information desk. The staff there were also unable to explain why we couldn't get the flight to Nice. Instead they gave us vouchers for a hotel and transport to said hotel. After this rather frustrating escapade, we set off to the bus stop to get to the hotel. To our dismay, this was not a smooth process. The buses only ran every 30 minutes, so we had to wait for one to arrive. When it did, it was 10 minutes late. The hotel was also a long way from Terminal 5. It took around 25 minutes for us to actually get there. By the time we were in our room it was 22h00. This was the time we were expecting to arrive in Nice and was only 7 hours before we needed to be back at the airport. Our flight cancellation was an absolute nightmare. Both my girlfriend and I were late for work and arrived rather bleary-eyed. BA have since offered us compensation, but it was not a process I wish to repeat. Close

There are certain cities around the world where it just seems impossible to find the things you are looking for. In Lyon for example, everything seemed to be spread out in different corners of the city. Many of the hotels were to the East of the city in the business district. The shopping areas were rather more central, but the bars were on the very West of the city in the Old Town. It all made for a lot of schlepping our respective asses around the city. I had similar problems in both Nanjing and Hohhot in China where I seemed to walk for hours without finding any type of nucleus containing shops restaurants or hotels. I always dread encountering such cities on my travels. However, a fate worse than this is landing in a city where everything is centrally located … except the hotel you have reserved online. This was something that happened to my girlfriend and I in Marseille where we found ourselves a long subway ride from the Port and surrounding attractions.When I booked the Premier Inn Charing Cross in Glasgow, I had all these concerns passing through my mind. We had thought about staying at the Ibis Budget close to the river, but were swayed because it seemed a little remote However, as I researched where there might be good shops and restaurants, I began to see that the Premier Inn would be a good choice as it was close to Sauchiehall Street around which scores of things seemed to be located. As it transpired, my predictions were correct as Sauchiehall Street provided us with absolutely everything we needed in Glasgow.We were actually in Glasgow to attend a friend's wedding. This meant, to my girlfriend at least, that we needed to find both a hair-salon and a beautician to visit on the morning of the wedding. This proved no problem as we were able to locate both within 200m of our hotel. They both provided great service with my girlfriend enjoying a style and blow-dry for 20GBP and eye-brow-waxing for 10GBP. Whilst she was doing this, I was able to enjoy coffee in one of the many local coffee shops and then change our money – we had pounds and needed Euros at a pawnbrokers that also did foreign exchange.After the wedding, when several of my friends and I were onto our ninth beer or so and we left the wedding venue, it was again Sauchiehall Street to which we headed. At the western end of the street there are several bars on the main road as well as a great array on the side-streets that adjoin it. We managed to find our way to Buff on one of the back-streets and had a whale of a time dancing away to sixties music and enjoying some of its very reasonably priced beer.Prior to visiting Glasgow, my girlfriend had set her heart on enjoying a shopping spree and finding some local bargains. Again, we didn't have to go far as Sauchiehall Street is home to a fine variety of major UK High Street Brands. We scarcely had to walk a kilometre before she had visited over twenty different shops and relegated me to the role of pack mule as I lugged about the ever-increasing collection of bags filled with clothes, cosmetics and other such frivolities.In short, Sauchiehall Street was a magnificently convenient area of Glasgow. It offered us everything we needed. There was shopping, there were cafes and restaurants, there were bars and there was accommodation. I would heartily recommend that anyone staying Glasgow pick a hotel in the vicinity. Close

I am sure that anyone who has ever spent an evening at Buff Club in Glasgow will have either made a joke or thought about making a joke that relates to the name Buff being British slang for native. I can imagine hundreds of Facebook updates that might read something like: 'Having fun in the Buff' or 'Can't believe Tom is in the Buff tonight'. As I almost always give in to peer pressure rather quickly and pitifully, I decided to do the same with the title for this article. However, terrible puns aside, my girlfriend and I had a great time at Buff.To set the scene, we had been at my friend's wedding during the afternoon and early evening. As a consequence, we were very much in the party mood. So, we jumped on a bus from the wedding venue – the rather nice A House for an Art Lover – and headed onto Sauchiehall Street in the city centre. Buff is located on a rather dark backstreet that runs parallel to the large shopping street. If we had not been accompanied by a few locals, we may not have ventured down there, but I am glad that we did.The first surprise in Buff was the prices. I ordered two bottles of cider and two pints of lager and was charged for 11GBP. Considering it was a Friday night in a night-club in a major British city was expecting to pay roughly double that. So, I was delighted – it put me in even more of a dancing mood! On top of this, the beer was good; it was crisp and cold.Buff is separated into two floors. The bottom is more of a bar. It plays modern music – rock and indie music rather than techno or dance - at rather loud volumes. We settled in to enjoy our beers and chill out a little to the music. It was not bad at all and I could easily have spent a very nice evening like that. However, our desire to dance and the fact that it was rather crowded downstairs pushed us upstairs to the dance-floor. When we got there, I was both delighted and astounded to find that not only was the dance-floor busy buzzing, but that the music was 1960s British music of the mod variety. I am a huge fan of such sounds – The Small faces and the Spencer Davis Group are a couple of major favourites – which meant my girlfriend and I were onto the dance-floor extremely quickly. There were a couple of factors that conspired to make the dancing fantastic. The first was that we had been at a traditionally Scottish Wedding and had been 'enjoying' Caley dancing. There had been no modern music at all, so we were very much ready for a change of pace. The second was that we were all dressed rather formally because of the wedding, so we fitted into the 1960s vibe very well.We had an absolutely fantastic time at Buff and I would heartily recommend it to anyone who is visiting Glasgow and looking for a good evening out. It was free to enter and the drinks were cheap. Close

When in Glasgow I took the chance to do some clothes shopping as I needed some new summer clothes. My friends and I headed to Buchanan Street in the city centre as this is where the majority of shops are located. There really is something for everyone on Buchanan Street with shops to cater for every budget and style. House of Fraser stands at the bottom of the street and is a good place to have a browse. It is a massive department store that sells mainly designer clothing and has a large perfume and make-up section. There is also a yo-sushi and coffee shop in the store. Further along the street are a selection of high street stores such as new look and topshop as well as more upmarket shops such as l’occitane and Molton Brown. At the top of the street is The Buchanan Galleries which is one of the largest city centre shopping malls in the UK. Inside the galleries are huge with a massive selection of shops. There is also a large John Lewis next to the Buchanan Galleries. One of the things I like best about Buchanan Street and The Buchanan Galleries is that alongside there being a huge selection of shops the street also contains lots of flagship stores such as the Spanish brand Desigual and Hugo Boss which are the only shops they have in Scotland. After you have tired yourself out with all that shopping there are plenty of places to stop and have a coffee or a bite to eat. There are several Starbucks as well as some independent places. The Royal Exchange Square is only a couple of minutes’ walk away and here there are loads of outdoor restaurants to choose from if it is a nice day. Buchanan Street can get extremely busy especially on Saturdays. It is the busiest shopping street in the UK outside of London and it feels like it sometimes with the throng of people. Luckily because there are so many places to shop when you are in the shops they never really feel that busy and it is only when you step outside again that you notice just how busy it actually is. There are normally street performers and buskers at several points along the street which add to the atmosphere and give you an excuse to stop for a few minutes. Leading off the street are several alleyways which lead to other streets. Along these are market stalls where you can find interesting items such as handmade jewellery and candles. For shopping Buchanan Street cannot be beaten as it has every kind of shop imaginable and the historic buildings make it a much nicer shopping experience than going to an out of town shopping centre. Just be prepared to bring your wallet and credit card when you come here. Close

There are many cities in the world where travellers are generally advised how bad the driving is, or more simply that they should just avoid it at all costs. The horrors of driving in LA were sung so often and so loudly that by the time we actually got there and had to do it - it was blissfully stress free in comparison to what we had been expecting. They say it often about Rome, and Tokyo, New York and Paris. And for the most part there's truth about the warnings in all of these places. But I can't recall ever once having heard anyone say 'don't drive in Glasgow' until I moved to Scotland. For starters - I won't be one of those travel writers who bemoans how awful the driving is in a place and assumes that you won't be able to manage it. Because if want to drive in Glasgow - or it just so happens to be a part of your planned trip then you will manage it just fine. Even if you've not driven on the left before (and I hope you get an easier start at that than in Glasgow if that's the case) you will very quickly pick it up and be on your way. The thing I've discovered about roads and driving is that - regardless of what guidebooks say, it's pretty much the same everywhere. I always recommend getting a 'rules of the road' book locally when you arrive if you can before you set off, and a very good map is always advisable (don't rely on the ones that come with rental cars...that is almost always a mistake) and really really don't rely on GPS. I'm sure it has it's good points and is a good back up to have - but you can't beat a good old fashioned road map to examine first, especially given the European delight at hiding road signs behind bushes, around corners, so high up you can't make them out until you're past them or forgetting to post them altogether. So if you feel so inclined - you obviously can drive in Glasgow. And if you speak English then all the better, as the road signs are all pretty similar to those in the US, Australia and New Zealand with a few differences that are pretty easy to figure out. As always pay special attention to the road signs in any new country until you get a feel for how things are done, and check online or with a local auto club if you want to get a feel for how driving in the UK is done before you arrive. I do, however, mention driving in Glasgow because though it's not going to be significantly harder than driving in many other cities - it is infinitely more frustrating. Glasgow is one of those glorious cities that seems to have made an art form of confusing the road system until it is grandly obscure and completely incomprehensible. If you do decide to drive around Glasgow - have a navigator with a good map if at all possible, unless you are happy to spend most of a day doing loops around and wondering just how on earth you have missed the street yet again - and why you have been deterred down yet another one way street. Glasgow central is one gigantic maze of one way streets - and I can not fathom their purpose. When I say this to Glaswegians I either get emphatic agreement or a slightly confused look and 'It's not that bad, is it?' So as always - I suppose these things boil down to what you are used to. Ultimately, for me, it's just simply not worth driving in Glasgow. The central bit is easy to walk, and the grid like system which is a nightmare in the car trying to find a road that will finally let you go in the direction you want to go - is great on foot and makes it very easy to find your way around. There's a good bus system in Glasgow, both around and into and out of. There's a very easy bus comes from Edinburgh as well as the airport leading you right into the Buchanan St Bus station in the very centre of the city where you can take a cab, bus or walk easily to anywhere else you wanted to go. There's even a small underground system. The trains are great (the big beautiful train station is just a few blocks away from the bus station) and you can get the train in from Glasgow Prestwick airport or anywhere else you may need to come from or go to. Seeing the countryside around Glasgow will certainly benefit from the use of your own car - but if you're spending most of your time in the Scottish cities then I strongly recommend you avoid the hassle and stress (and expense) of driving in Glasgow. It's a city best met in a charitable mood, and driving loops around the endless one way roads isn't the best start to a visit to any city. Close

It's hard to go anywhere in Scotland with out seeing some hint of the influences of the artist and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Even if you didn't realize that it's what you were looking at, chances are you've seen something with a 'Mackintosh' style design on it. The very unique and recognizable design style has been imitate on a thousand coffee mugs, picture frames, post cards and figurines. I doubt there is a Scottish souvenir shop anywhere in the country that doesn't have something with this style in it. But to appreciate it really (and I feel I can say this with some authority as I've lived in Scotland now for almost a decade and never thought much of the style until recently) you must go to Glasgow and see the original work. As a simple style - it has a modernist feel, and as it is very unique it will obviously not be to everyone's taste. I'll happily admit that it never was mine, and as a lover of older, more traditional art I never paid it much attention. The problem with that, is that the recreation of something so unique - whether it would be your first or favourite choice - will never really capture the true beauty of what it has to offer. So if all of the 'Mackintosh' you've seen is the little thin rose designs on trinkets or mirrors - then you are in for a real treat if you decide to check out Glasgow's Mackintosh trail. Some art - I happen to believe - is best when experienced unawares. When it sneaks up on you and though you know nothing at all about it, it speaks to you instantly and in a way you can not describe. However, other things seem to be infused with another layer and level of life and appreciation when you know something real about it's history and the life of the artist who created it. And though I am sure this will include different art for everyone, for me, the art work of Mackintosh and his wife did not come alive for me until I knew the history of the man and where the heart of his design came from. I won't spend this review telling you the history of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Scottish artist and architect who lived from 1868 - 1928 and who spent much of his time and did a lot of his work in Glasgow. But I highly recommend that if you don't know much about this artist or the relationship he had with his wife and how their artistic natures complemented each other, I would highly recommend that you look into it a little bit at least before setting off on the Mackintosh trail. I was fortunate enough to find myself in a hotel on Sauchiehall Street in Glagsow with a week to kill and pouring rain outside, and a mild interest to check out Mackintosh's work while I was in the city. To my absolute delight, BBC2 decided to air an hour long special my first night in the city about the artist himself. What luck! I was pretty taken by the story, and the next morning headed out with rain-proofs on to obtain a map of the Mackintosh Trail (consisting of art and architecture of his design around the city) and set off to see it for myself. Despite the weather, and other aspects of Glasgow - I found myself spending not hours but days transfixed in the immense and beautiful Kelvingrove Museum becoming more and more a fan of the art I had always dismissed in the past. This is a really unique thing to go in search of, and as far as I'm concerned (though I know many would disagree) is the best thing that a visit to Glasgow has to offer. If you're going to be spending some time in the city, I can recommend nothing better than for you to browse the artists work and history and then set out on foot to explore it for yourself. Close

The competition for the title of Curry Capital of Britain is sponsored by Kingfisher Indian lager. Each participating city or town nominates four restaurants (this is done by public vote) and then visited – in secret - by a group of judges. Glasgow has won the title three times in recent years and it's not surprising as Glasgow has a large Indian population and a curry house tradition going back fifty years or so, with a unique Southern Indian slant. Glasgow council also always supports the city bid very strongly and undoubtedly this official support and help with media, PR and presentations as well as galvanising the people to vote, is one of the reasons Glasgow does so well in the competition. In reality and outside competitions, it's probably Bradford that's due the title of the Curry Capital – the Indian population there is huge, and it's known for great curry houses, from the very cheap to top of the market. Manchester with its Rusholme area famous for Indian restaurants and London, with some Michelin starred ones are also strong contenders. But it's not all just council PR, as Glasgow has a lot to offer in curry stakes. Glasgow's best Indian eateries include the famed Ashoka West End (now complemented by Ashoka Ashton Lane and few others. The same restaurant group (Harlequin) owns the Kama Sutra, which offer many traditional as well as regional dishes in sumptuously sensuous surroundings. Ashoka was set up in 1973 by chef Balbir Singh Sumal, who sold it on and years later started his own curry mini-empire with the flagship Balbir's as well as Route 77, Saffron Lounge and Tiffin Rooms. Mother India's small chain of Wee Curry Shops (plus now also a Mother India Cafe) has been bringing Indian home food to enthusiastic Glasgow public for over 15 years now. Shish Mahal has been around – and run by the same family – for almost 50 years. One of its chefs even claims to have invented Britain's favourite curry dish: chicken tikka massala (others say that it dates to New Delhi in the 1940's). Close

Monday started out a bit iffy but turned into a beautiful day, although still a bit chilly. We headed by bus to Glasgow, about an hour trip. Once there, we walked to the 12th century cathedral dedicated to the town's patron saint, St. Mungo (made us remember the old Brooklyn Dodgers' pitcher Van Lingo Mungo!). Behind the church the cemetery with its massive vaults looms on a high hill, appearing like some bizarre apartment complex. Nextdoor is the Royal Infirmary, a building that looks like a castle. Also in the area is the Provand's Lordship, the oldest house in Glasgow, built in 1471. We then boarded a tour bus, a 'hop on, hop off' bus which would take us to all the sights. Our driver and guide were very amusing, doing songs and little dances and such. Glasgow is a very industrialized city with many modern buildings. It's easy to miss the charm of the beautiful old brownstone buildings, with their intricate detail. But they are worth looking out for. The bus passed through the University district and Kelvingrove Park, with its tennis courts and bowling greens. We got off near the original Willow Tea Room, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928), Glasgow's most famous architect/artist/designer. His work reminded me of Frank Lloyd Wright. We had a nice lunch although we discovered this is the only one of the 4 tearooms that does not serve alcohol! David had haggis with neeps and taties (mashed potatoes and rutabagas); I had an English tea which was brought on a plateau - sandwiches of cucumber and cheese, salmon, ham, and egg salad on one layer, a scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam on another, and a rich chocolate layer cake on the final layer, all accompanied by a pot of tea.Afterwards we 'hopped on' again, passing by the River Clyde where the old shipyards built the Queen Mary and many other famous ships. We went on to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, housed in a magnificent building of brownstone with turrets and much decoration. It's a stunning building, inside and out. We toured many of the rooms showing the art collection, including Monet's "A View of Ventimiglia" which reminded us of home. Then we jumped back on the tour bus to return to the bus station and our trip back to Edinburgh. Close

Glasgow is a haven for anyone wanting to let their hair down. It is bursting with a variety of pubs and clubs to suit all tastes. One area that most people head to at night is Sauchiehall Street, where you’ll find most of the major clubs (the biggest and the best being the Garage) and pubs (try Revolution, a vodka bar – it’s amazing, you can get any flavour vodka you like).
If it’s shopping you want, then Glasgow has it all. Try Argyle Street, which has all the major shops, or go to Buchanan Galleries on Buchanan Street – it’s huge and has all the major shops but in smaller versions, but it’s handy if it’s raining. On Buchanan Street also is UCG Cinema, which is the biggest in Europe and has about six floors and 18 cinema screens.
Restaurants are everywhere in Glasgow and you won’t have to look to find one. One of the nicest I went to was St. Vincent’s 75, very posh and expensive but worth it. You can find it on St. Vincent St just off Buchanan St. If you are on a budget and want something other than fast food, then most of the pubs are great - Failte does wonderful food and is really cheap. You will find this also in St. Vincent St, and being an Irish bar helps as well.

Glasgow’s newest attraction is the Glasgow Science Centre. Designed to fire the imagination and get your creative juices flowing, it was just what my wife and I needed after Christmas, and we promptly drove the 35 miles to Glasgow.
The New Science Centre is on the banks of the Clyde River, across from the Exhibition Centre, which is also rather eye-catching since it's shaped like an armadillo; a footbridge connects the two. The GSC cost about $113 million and is an architectural marvel, being only the second building in the world to be clad in titanium--this alone makes the GSC stand out. Even so, what truly makes the GSC unique is its viewing tower, which is the largest freestanding structure in Scotland, and the rotational device that makes the building turn 360 degrees.
The GSC combines three buildings: the main Science Mall, the Tower, and an IMAX theatre.
Once inside, the reception hall proved inadequate; the queue at the cash desk had to be fought through to get from one building to another. Developers should have used a bit of science--applied queuing theory, perhaps--to deal with the problem.
For the equivalent of $14.25 we gained entry to the IMAX and the Science Mall.
A 3D film was about to start so we headed for the IMAX theatre, housed in a building shaped like a large ball, with the largest cinema screen in Scotland--it measured a whopping 80 by 60 feet and appeared to be curved. IMAX offers a selection of educational and scientific films; the one we saw was about the ascent of Everest by the son of the Sherpa, Norgay Tenzing, that first conquered the mountain with Sir Edmund Hillary. The 3D effect was more dramatic than real life: to have an avalanche hurtling straight at you from the giant screen with realistic sound effects and trembling seats, was certainly scary--the only things missing were extreme cold and wind! The drama was heightened by a group of climbers being caught out by a gale as they tackled the final ascent. Several deaths occurred and one climber, as he lay dying, spoke to his wife by mobile phone and discussed the name of their as-yet unborn child. It was real tear-jerking stuff. The IMAX by itself is worth a visit.
Following the film we had something to eat at the snack bar in the tower, though the tower itself had suffered some technical problems and was closed. You're supposed to be able to ascend to the top and take in a panoramic view of Glasgow and outer surroundings.
We finished by visiting the Science Mall, which has three main floors: Explore, Discover, Experiment, and Enjoy; Science in Action; and Science and You. There is genuinely something there for everyone--whatever your age, you won't be bored. Most of the displays are interactive and good childish fun. We visited two Science Shows where the adults in the audience participated to a greater extent than the kids. The first was about rockets, and demonstrated various devices from a balloon rocket--which proved too successful, as it disappeared above the ceiling--to objects propelled by exploding gas. The other show was about electricity, which certainly taught me a few things I didn’t know. It was all good fun. The demonstrator, who I suspect was from one of the nearby universities, was a good entertainer.
There are over 300 exhibits including ones that did 3D headscans and allowed you to rearrange your features; star in your own digital video; see a glass get smashed by sound; and experience a million volts of indoor lightening. There was enough to keep everybody entertained, but family with children would have gotten the most out of it.
The place is well worth a visit and good value, considering it’s a full day's entertainment. For further information visit: Glasgow Science Centre
