Stoppin' into Glasgow!

A travel blog entry by mikencana


A lovely little town Glasgow can be, despite the wet; quite small yet still busy with travelers and schools and business galore.

After taking off, I think we were in air for maybe fifteen minutes before we started landing. I was very confused at first because I didn't think we could be there already.
