When you work in tourism, you should know what you sell. Right? I didn’t know as much as I wanted when I started out in Scotland, so my company sent me on the trips I was selling – a perfectly normal training approach but totally new to me.
Last summer I realised that I love walking. In fact, I love it so much that I do it for several hours every day if I have the time – from Merchant City to the West End or to Springburn, you name it, I walk there and back again.
Back at uni that’s suddenly not so easy anymore and my ambition is additionally scrutinised by horrible weather. Luckily, a friend called me up recently and asked if I wanted to spend my weekend walking the Thomas Muir Way, except from finish to start – Bishopsbriggs to Clachan of Campsie via Kirkintilloch. Sounded like a great day out to me.
I have been wanting to start a blog for quite a while now and for a variety of reasons.
After I moved to a different country, I always felt the need to let everybody back home know what I was doing, seeing,discovering, feeling and so on. Working in tourism, the seeing and discovering part was most important though, with my curiosity constantly growing.
