May 2007 I had the pleasure of going to Glasgow Scotland and spending a week with a good friend of mine. I throroughly enjoyed the week seeing the sights in Glasgow, Paisley and also Loch Lommond. With the advert of the low-cost airlines, a round-trip ticket from Bergamo Orio al Serio Airport, near Milan, to Glasgow Prestwick Airport in May 2007 I spent about $60 on Ryanair. Sixty dollars doesn’t even fill my gas tank.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit Scotland yet, I would highly suggest going. I found Glasgow and the area very clean and green. The people were very warm and welcoming. They were genuienly friendly and open. Nor did I feel any Anti-American sentiment while I was there.
