You know when you wake up knowing it’s your last day of holiday and you have to pack? It’s never as fun doing this packing as it is before you go away. Nevertheless it has to be done! When packing for coming home, we do this very differently! I like to pack as neatly as I did when I left my house, but with dirty and clean clothes separated, however Martin just shoves all the dirty clothes into a bag a zips it shut – everyone’s different.
For the final time, we woke up and got ready for the day. Back to driving today, we had to get the car park ticket stamped at reception to get a discounted price, but it still came to a whooping £47 that we were both very surprised at! When looking at hotels check the parking if you do travel by car and maybe call them up to find out exactly how much it will be if you’re going on a budget. A quick trip for fuel, and a DIY clean for the wind screen because it had that many dead bugs on it, it was hard to see out of the wind screen. Martin made a little mix of coke and water (A LOT more water than coke) and gave it a good scrub.
We booked this long weekend back in November (after having been to Edinburgh for 4 days), and decided to go Saturday – Tuesday as a nice little get-away.
Knowing it would be around a 4 hour drive (with stops) we decided to leave around 8am. Our check in was at 2 however the decision was made for 8am as it would mean we could go else where on the journey up, and have a look around and then go and check into our hotel. The plan is to leave the car in the car park the whole time we are there as we will be paying for the car park and get a discounted rate per 24hrs (£13 instead of £26). Plus public transport in Glasgow is supposed to be pretty good, we’re also staying really close to the city centre so there shouldn’t really be much of a need to drive.
After packing 2 days early, the only things left were the everyday items such as; make up, hair brush, toothbrush, deodorant, etc (me being me forgot my hair brush and had to buy one from Superdrug, luckily I had lots of Superdrug points to spend!) Loading the car up was an easy job (really glad that my first car is a Meriva and not something with a tiny boot), and off we went. Road trip, to Glasgow!
