  1. I saw your post in the Writing101 commons. I am getting the impression that you are from Glasgow. I just paid a visit to Scotland a few weeks ago and only had 2 days in Glasgow, but I loved it! I visited the Highlands and Loch Ness and I can see why scenic adventures in Scotland made your list. I also noticed that you like bike rides somewhere scenic, well if you ever make it to Amsterdam, there is a place called Zaanse Schans nearby. It is about a 20 minute bus ride from Amsterdam, but cycling around that town was one of my favorite experiences on my trip.

    Would love to hear your feedback on my Day 2 list: https://whistlewhileyouwalk.wordpress.com/2015/09/08/bucket-list/


    • Thanks for taking time to comment. I am originally from London and have been living in Scotland for over 10 years and really enjoy it, although at the moment I am away. Bike rides in Amsterdam sounds great, I went there with school at the time I didn’t know how to ride a bike! So would love to go back now that I am a much more competent cyclist, will put Zaanse Schans on my list!
      I liked your list and lived near Glasgow Green for a couple of years the sound of bagpipes wound find its way into the flat during the championships. It always seemed like a fun event 🙂
