Glasgow is a lively place with great sights, architecture, shops and food/drink within its many lovely streets. Easy to direct yourself around whether on the bus, train or walking. Visiting Loch Lomond was our highlight! Adventure activities I liked: Loch Lomond – Hiking and kayaking. I saw the Lighthouse, Loch Lomond, Glasgow Cathedral, Glasgow University and Pollard Park. Strolling the streets at night time was nice and admiring the views of the city, as well as playing mini golf together at Jungle Rumble in the Indian Ocean 18-hole course.

The weather was spectacular, food was amazing. We hired rowing boats and played mini golf. I love Stratford, one of my favourite places to go, very pretty town with lots of quirky cute cafes. Went rowing down the river and played mini golf. The hotel we stayed in was very romantic and the spa was amazing! The weather was amazing and I loved every single second.

There is plenty of thing to do in and around Belfast... The city is surrounded by great views and hilltops.... Also Cavehill was worth the climb... Had a great time sightseeing and visiting all the local pubs of Belfast which were all really nice. The Titanic Museum is well worth a visit.
