Pat's Guide to Glasgow West End

wow recognise a lot of those areas, our hotel was just along from the statue with its head in the wall.

 

Did you do the Reichstag tour?

 

There is a wall in the parliament that they uncovered and it was full of graffiti written by Russian soldiers in 1945.  One piece of graffiti was a young soldier scrawling his name and asking his sweet-heart to marry him.   The German Government found the couple in the 1980s, they got married and were still together, they were invited back to the Reichstagg.

Saw Berlin and thought "Irving" but being in the dragons den that thought didn't last. Good photographs but never had a yen to go there, Paris, Barcelona, Milan and Heidleberg, the last because it was a favourite city of Mark Twains.

no where id say needing avoided to be honest, well we never seen anything what youd call dodgyness lol.

all day tickets for the public transport is a must, ticket machines all have "english" buttons and an all day ticket gets you on everything that moves (mind and stamp your ticket though as its not valid if its not stamped....stampers are usually close to the ticket machine). i found the transport system really easy to figure out...most things are on the u6 line.

avoid the sausage for breakfast as it usually has some form of curry in it.

if you want to see loads be prepared for loads and loads of walking, you can get the ubhan or bus to most places but i think it better to walk about if your not travelling big distances. theres loads of free walking tours you can do, if you go near Brandenburg youl see them, just give a donation at the end. dont sign any "sponsor" forms the romas give you cause theyl then want money.

the "netto" shops are beyond cheapness so get the beers in there.

most places we went where reasonably priced right enough as long as your not sitting outside in a hotspot it should be normalish to what youd pay here.

where abouts are you staying?

Before going, book you and hubby on to a tour of the Reichstagg, its free and the spiral dome is something else.  Remember to request English speaking guide :-)
