Back in October we had gone for a long 4 day weekend to Edinburgh and when we got home we had enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to book a long weekend again but for Glasgow. So by November, we had a look and made the decision to stay in the town centre this time so we wouldn’t need to drive around.
With the hotel booked we just needed to decide who’s car we would go in and what to pack but this wasn’t decided until the week before. The decision came to me driving as we can both drive my car, which makes it easier.
Now came packing:
I know its June and everything but still packing is hard, especially when you think Scotland is a rainy place. So to be safe I went with a bit of both spring and summer clothes. A few shorts, a couple of skirts and tights just incase it got chilly, and some jeans. I also packed a leather jacket, a hoodie and a suede jacket, simply because I don’t know what to wear.
As well as my suitcase I had my bag to pack, I’ve gone with my iPad and then general day to day bag bits like an umbrella, etc. Since I will probably be doing most of the driving I don’t want to take a load of things I won’t even look at. Plus when I’m a passenger I like to stare out the windows anyway.
Packing for me involves list after list after list, what to put in my suitcase and what to put in my bag and what I might need for the car, also what I need to not forget (such as stamps for postcards). With my suitcase and bag sorted out, there’s just the matter of making sure that we have drinks and a few nibbles for the car, and then it’s time to go to Glasgow!
