Back in Swindon

Picture of the Christmas Market in Glasgow

Back in dull and grey Swindon. OK, Glasgow wasn't exactly sunny on my last day in Scotland either. Actually, it rained most of the morning, I was glad that I could shelter in the various book stores and at the stalls of the German Christmas Market on St Enoch Square. As I still had the long drive to Swindon ahead of me I could only drink one Glühwein, very nice.

The book shops also made way too much money from me again. I bought four of the pocket mountains guides: Central Highlands, Southern Highlands, West Highlands and The Islands (Skye, the Hebrides and Arran). They look very good and should provide me with plenty ideas for future walks, I wish I had discovered some of them earlier. I also bought Francis Wheen's Hoo-hahs and Passing Frenzies after finishing the excellent How Mumbo-jumbo Conquered the World: A Short History of Modern Delusions recently.

Now I'm back home and could probably need some help from Valerie with doing the laundry (found at Die Zeit)...
