What we're about

A meet-up in Edinburgh for socialising and discussion about all things travel related. For locals, people new to the city and tourists to discuss their travelling experiences. Enthral others with a story or two from your past global explorations. Share your ideas, plans, questions or concerns for your next international adventure. A real opportunity to share stories and be inspired for your next trip abroad.

Hopefully this will be a positive group to share information and meet like minded people with the possibility of making new friends, expanding social circles and potentially arranging trips.

A few items I'm looking into ticking off the bucket list are: Cuba, Sao Joao Festival in Porto, Haro Wine Battle in Northern Spain, Morocco to climb Mount Toubkal, Norway for Hiking and Kayaking, Burning Man, Southern US trip to Texas/New Orleans/Nashville maybe do the Bourbon Trail, South Korea to see Seoul and attend the Boryeong Mud Festival, Japan, Rome for the Marathon and plenty of carbo-loading, as well as many others around the UK and further abroad.

Plan will be pick a date, pick a location, hang out there with a few drinks and repeat!

The Monthly Travel Tour & Talk in Glasgow! 🌆

Needs a location

We'll be doing a travel meetup in Glasgow! We decided to postpone to June to get more numbers and find a different venue that doesn't require a deposit. Join us on a day trip to explore the friendly city that may or may not open up its arms to us Edinburgh peeps 😂

Here is the plan:

12pm - Lily & Gary's Glasgow City Centre Tour for Cool People
Meet at the Sir Walter Scott statue right in the middle of George Square. It's round the corner of Glasgow Queens Street Station. This is where our tour will start.
This is our take of Glasgow from people who are not from Glasgow! We hope to show you a few cool places and hidden gems we like whilst trying to entertain you a bit. We will try to squeeze in as many facts and history during the tour but we cannot promise anything- we will just do our best!

Please note that this is not a serious or proper tour of Glasgow at all. This is just for fun! We have provided real walking tour information further below if you want to book a Glasgow tour run by real professionals. They are held earlier on in the day so it's perfect if you want to explore Glasgow before meeting up with us. The professional tours have nothing to do with this Travel Meetup so if they suck, you should have come to our one instead because at least we set your expectations in advance 😂!

1:30pm - The Monthly Travel Talk @ TBC
We will confirm the venue for our travel talk nearer to the time! You can skip the tour above entirely and join us here instead. We will look for free function space. We usually share travel stories and tips and just have a fun time meeting new people or catching up with familiar faces. You can also order food here if you're hungry.

5pm - Karaoke @ Supercube
104 Bath St, Glasgow G2 2EN
This is where you decide yes or no! Feel free to explore more of Glasgow on your own or in groups - go to one of the places from your tour or head home! If you would like to join us for some karaoke, please let me know by saying 'Yes' when prompted with the question at the time of RSVP. I can then get the numbers and book it for us and let you know the final costs when I've worked it out 🙂

If you don't want to come, that's ok! Feel free to explore more of Glasgow, go to one of the places on your tours or head home!

8pm - Drinks and food at TBC
Need to refuel after karaoke! We'll find a place closer to the day. For those who went off to do something else instead of karaoke, please come join for a drink before you leave for home ♥

The last train home to Edinburgh is 23:45 from Glasgow Queen Street Station. Knowing me, I'll probably miss it and stay at a hotel instead!
