First view of Glasgow

Elizabeth helped us with arranging cars and we started to office. OMG Galsgow is so beautiful with so much trees, peace, and beautiful greenery. The houses all looked a little thrown back in era compared to the modern world but there is where the beauty lies. You should see the scenery outside the office window. Such a perfect environment to work. And returning back we decided to investigate more ways to reach hotel and we tried taking a bus and then a subway. It was tiring a little but then when I am subjected to such lovely beauty it all fades at the back. Since we had decided to walk around a little we took the Byres road. Tell You wat 75% of the shops were closed. This wasn't wat I had expected. The cold was starting to get us through the leather gloves too. AFter doing some teeny weeny bit shopping and dinner we started to walk to the hotel following the directions"Take tht right, walk straight, take the first right and walk staight ahead. You will find it." We walked, walked and walked. Sorry we climbed, climbed and climbed and then we reached our hotel. And again all I cud do is go to bed straight ofcourse after dinner of a subway sandwich. 2 days of sandwiches *faints* *thud*.

Friday wasn't as eventful. . . had a walk of 2.5 hrs in the botanical gardens. Such a beautiful place off the highway. An idle walk and lots and lots of pictures. On the way back we decided to visit a 24/7 shop run by our neighbour as he says . . . a pakistani. Very helpful, answering our questions about asian markets and volunteering information for us, just as a good neighbour does. Then again back to the room . . . this time not to bed. I was so relaxed to go to bed. SO I decided to write my blog. Now as I have finished it am gonna post it and then head back out again, with more information and stuff to post here.

Visit to UK and my first taste of UK

I boarded my flight on wednesday morning. I had left home with confidence. Wat I didnt expect was the tears threatening to fall. Just cudnt a put a finger on why I felt so. The flight was a little tiring with travelling for 14 hrs straight and then boarding the flight to Glasgow from London Heathrow airport. It was all as I had expected. A busy airport very much business like. But the moment changed when I was flying to glasgow. Such a beautiful country. If the cloud permits you, , , all u can see is green green and more green. And somewhere in middle you can see a beautiful place with all identical roofed houses(thts all I can see from tht height, he he) and clear paths. Very wonderfully planned. And moving towards glasgow there's lot of those green fields and now its all dotted with white spots. . . I guess its all cows. I cud seeter a lot still on the way to office. We landed at glasgow and we had to call the hotel before reaching there. So we decided to buy a sim on the way to the hotel and tried to tke a taxi. Unfortunately the taxi driver didnt know abt the route. Still he got the address and took us to a mall where I can get sim. Everywhere everyone was so helpful. No frowning or anything. Scotland was all I expected and more. After the help from the sales person who volunteerly helped by guiding to the right kind of sim we needed we go it and left to the hotel. The rest of the journey was calls to family and friends. Reaching the hotel, we just wanted to reach the rooms and then Bed and we did just tht. But we were careful not to sleep coz' the best way to fight jet lag is to try following the time zone of the place we are in.We met Elizabeth, the owner and then walked into our apartment. OMG it was beautiful. A little rundown but was stright out of books with a fireplace, a rug in front of it and lovely couches where am now writing this from. I just peeped into a room just like the living room, big beds, windows and a beautiful lawn in front of the window. Wat more do I need. Tell me?????

Starting my blog again

Hi all,I know I know . . . Havent been here as much as I wud like to. But the truth is tht I was going through an important phase in my life and was very well engrossed in it. I got engaged last Feb and married in May.Well am not going to go deep into that. And after that now in UK.

And after being in such a beautiful country, I have decided to write a blog whenever I can. I see beautiful people, nature at its utmost beauty and the touch of GOD every where and I thought this is absolute heaven. Trust me . . . This is heaven.
