Two geeky engineers in Glasgow, a rather grey day in Glasgow = a trip to the Riverside Museum. Which unsurprisingly is on the river. Approximately a 10 minute walk from my flat (aka I live next door.) I always call it the transport museum as that ultimately is what the museum is about. The museum is free to enter and very popular with all the kids on holiday.
You can also visit the beach! Just ignore the fact there is no sun, idyllic blue sea and smell of sunscreen.
There is a fascinating exhibition on about the Para-Sport Tandem cyclists (Aileen McGlynn and Louise Haston), who competed and won Gold at last year’s Commonwealth Games. The thinness of the wheels was impressive, looking at the bike you can tell it’s very light.
Wandering around you are faced with anything and everything. A supposed high street of Glasgow way back when.
Complete with pub that allegedly females wouldn’t have been allowed into.
The original subway design.
A bike that looks as terrifying as it does fun, perfect for double dates!
Geeky plane bits, that make my inner engineer way too happy.
Bikes and cars line the walls and ceilings.
3D drawings still give me nightmares having attempted to render them (badly), from CAD software.
Outside you will find The Tall Ship, which has a small fee to enter and tour around.
A slightly different view of the Clyde to what I see out my window.
