Another Year of Glasgow Coffee Festival

This was my third year attending Glasgow Coffee Festival. You can see photos from the last 2 years here and here. In some respects it was better than other years (they introduced reusable cups, which in turn saved a grand total of 18,000+ disposable cups). The only disappointment was that no dogs were allowed this year (ignore those photos of Indie—she is an emotional support dog).

I ate cake, drank coffee and chatted to suppliers about the businesses they’re building and coffee they’re roasting. Just like last year, Rab and I had photographed a wedding the day before so we needed caffeine to recover.

 
 

Adventure Time

We visited Saturday’s wedding venue on Friday as the sun was setting. We wanted to scope the surrounding location. The sun was doing lovely things for us, so I couldn’t help but ask Rab—my friend and second shooter—to snap this photo.

 
 

Ben A’an

Check out the view from the start of Ben A’an. On Sunday I took Indie to Alloa for a walk. We didn’t attempt the summit because she has arthritis now, but we climbed for about 40 minutes with a few photo breaks before turning back.

Goal: summit Ben A’an at sunrise.

 A’…

 
 

Saturday Mornings at Market Coffee

The Southside is where it’s at. A lot of indie coffee shops have been popping up, including Market Coffee. If you want to drink great coffee in a surrounding that’s perfect for Instagram, this is the place! Shawshank and I could have spent hours here, but 2 coffees and 1 cake was our limit. We’ll definitely be back.

 
 

Hotel Sleepovers With Indie

I couldn’t get a dog sitter, so I took Indie to Newcastle with me. What an adventure we had! 8 mile walk around the city centre, dinner at Dat Bar, cocktails at the hotel bar. I hope we have many more adventures, Indie.

 
 

Milkshake Moustache

Took my nephew, Blake, to 10 10 for a strawberry milkshake. He approved. 10 10 used to be Monty’s, which used to be Montgomery’s.

 
 

The Good Coffee Cartel

Oh my, isn’t it exciting when you discover a new coffee shop? Not only that, but one that happens to be a 5 minute walk away… and is dog friendly? The Good Coffee Cartel is nailing it.

The Good Coffee Cartel is a coffee place, roaster and retail shop.  Get ’em checked.

 
 

Coffee at Kelvingrove Cafe

Met my pals, Lindsay and Joe, for brunch at Kelvingrove Cafe. They were hungover. Aside from my cold I was fresh as a daisy. Still, I treated myself to a big breakfast—the brioche french toast. It was so good I ate it before I could take a photo. Here is a picture of my coffee, though.

 
 

Squinty Bridge

Every morning Indie and I take a walk before work. It means I get to sit at the computer in peace. The past couple of days have felt very spring-like, so I took my camera with me. This is the Clyde Arc—or the squinty bridge as it’s known by locals.

 
 

Blizzard Faces

We had a crazy blizzard hit the UK. People were stuck in their cars overnight, shops were shut, people panic bought bread and milk. It was a very strange few days. I have never seen snow like this! Indie enjoyed it… for about 10 minutes.
