A selection of images taken during the trip to Glasgow for Gig One on my Acoustic “gig hop” tour.
Had to take a snap of “The Duke”. I couldn’t believe my luck that he was just a couple hundred yards down the road from the Travelodge I stayed at. I wanted to get to see him on my first trip to Glasgow last November, but time just didn’t allow. I had every intention of hunting him down this time, to make sure I saw him…and there he was as I made my way to the hotel! Serendipity!
I don’t know as much about politics as I should. But I do try to educate myself, which now means I probably know much more about British political history than I do of Australian political history. As a result of this, I had heard of Donald Dewar, who sadly passed away shortly after I moved to the UK. Quite literally one of a dying breed…a politician for the people, not out for personal gain with a singular objective.
The next day was time for an exploration beyond Glasgow’s city limits and so I went here…just a short and inexpensive train journey heading south west from Glasgow. Normally a short journey…but muggins here got on the wrong train at Glasgow Central and caught the express train which its first stop was Kilwinning! Lol. So, I had to get off at Kilwinning and get a train BACK to Lochwinnoch. I got there in the end…and what a beautiful place it was!
