Day 2 in Glasgow: Back in Time

After what seemed like a very short night of sleep, we continued our second day in Glasgow after checking out the hotel at 10am (yes, that was the official final check out time… ๐Ÿ˜›) We headed to Billโ€™s for a conventional full Scottish breakfast (how I missed black puddings lol!), then decided to stop by the Riverside Museum and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum today before heading back in the late afternoon.

Full Scottish Breakfast in Billโ€™s

We decided to go by the route via the Glasgow Subway. Unlike the London Underground, it felt much cosier and I actually found their small carriages quite cute lol. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hurry up so we can avoid the rain!! ๐Ÿ˜จ๐ŸŒง
Riverside Museum from a distance
Here we are at the Riverside Museum

The museum itself is a transport museum where many of the displays are interactive for visitors, so many of the transports can be climbed inside.

Inside the museum
I do like trains! ๐Ÿš‚
This reminds me of the mini vans in Hong Kong.
Inside the van. A nostalgic feeling for my mum.
Donโ€™t miss it! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Or, even better, walk in the old streets of Glasgow and taking the old subway. Itโ€™s like being transported back in time. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Back in time…
I can see the subway! ๐ŸšŠ๐Ÿ˜‰
Anyone wants a pint? ๐Ÿบ
Guess I can come here if I need some cash…?

The museum is also well known for the Tall shop from Govan parked outside by the harbour. The ship was built back in 1896 as a cargo ship and visitors were able to also go on board to take a look around. (Totally felt like I was in the Pirates of the Caribbean lol ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ)

The Tall Ship
Does this remind you of the Titanic?
Make sure you scrub it clean! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช
View from the deck
Tea or coffee, anyone? โ˜•๏ธ
Now, I feel like the captain! ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธ
Could actually imagine me bathing here lol ๐Ÿ›€
The childrenโ€™s bedroom. Aww kitty… ๐Ÿฑ
Exploring to the depth of the ship… ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿคญ (actually only a cafรฉ and a souvenir shop down there ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚)
The bottom of the shop (there is a children playground right next to this! ๐Ÿ˜†)

Before my mum started feeling too seasick (lol), we then decided to move on to the Kevingrove Art Gallery and Museum not too far of a walk away.

Greeted by an organ performance upon entering (thought we accidentally stepped into a church service lol)
A bit freaky lol… ๐Ÿ˜…
Beautiful paintings ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Probably my favourite painting of the ones I saw โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Tired from all the walking and sightseeing, we finally decided to head for lunch at the Hard Rock Cafรฉ. The portions were absolutely massive! ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜… (Still delicious though haha!)

Inside Hard Rock Cafรฉ
Nachos, Spicy Prawns and Buffalo Sliders

We loved the nachos (No joke, it was probably the biggest plate of nachos I had ever come across in my life!) with its overload of cheeses and spices. The spicy prawns were okay but slightly too much mayo in the coleslaw. I liked the sliders but just couldnโ€™t really taste the blue cheese. The portions were so big that we had to take a huge doggy bag with us on the bus back home! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ (P.S. we were still having it for lunch today… ๐Ÿ˜…)
