On Our Own in Glasgow, Scotland

We arrived a day before our official tour was supposed to start. We do this regularly, allowing for the possibility of flight issues. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel in our paperwork, only to find out they didn't have a reservation for us. The manager kindly called CIE and found that we had been moved to a different hotel. We were put into a taxi, paid for by the hotel, and transferred to the other hotel. Glasgow is a small city and the ride wasn't more than 10 minutes. Check in went fine.

Of course, this made all the information I had researched about the area we were supposed to be in null and void.

The tour was supposed to officially start the next day with dinner. Plan for the day on our own was a visit to the Riverside Museum, formerly the Transport Museum. I had information on how to get there using public transportation but that was from the other hotel. A bit of research on my tablet gave me the information I needed from the new hotel and off we went. With help from the ticket agent at the subway station, we got our round trip tickets and headed off.

We really enjoyed this museum and recommend it to anyone looking for something different to do in Glasgow.
