Ayden and Ashley’s Day Out in Glasgow

Ayden and I planned a fun day out. It involved food, a trip up the Lighthouse, bubble tea, a visit to the Gallery of Modern Art and dessert. Now that’s a perfect day.

It began with breakfast at Bill’s, which I had never been to. Bill’s has a nice backstory and avoided the big chain feel despite having restaurants dotted all over the UK. Ayden ordered blueberry pancakes and I had the vegetarian breakfast. If all vegetarian food was this satisfying, I’d give up steak. Maybe.

After Bill’s, we burned some calories by walking to the top of the Lighthouse and taking in the panoramic view of our beautiful city, Glasgow.

Ascending all those stairs was a thirsty job, so we stopped off at Tempo on Queen Street for bubble tea. This was just around the corner from the GoMA, which currently has a neon art installation adorning the front of the building titled We Love Real Life Scotland.

It was almost time to head home, but not before devouring dessert at another location I had never visited—JellyBear. Ayden asked for “the most ridiculous looking dessert on the menu” and was handed a sundae with candyfloss in it.

I live-Instagrammed our day with my Eyefi, which—after a flaky start—has become my favourite toy.

Ayden, let’s do this all over again!
