Arrived back into Glasgow just after 7am local time and not having slept. Bad enough having to queue to get back into your own country,especially at this time of the morning when there were no other arrivals, but I then got the third degree from the immigration officer. Normally they just scan your passport, but this time I was questioned on where I'd been, why and who with. maybe to do with the amount of travelling I've done recently, and all the various exit and entry points I've used in the UK :D , but this was the first time anyone had ever even asked about it. All I can say to the UK Border officials is it's going to get worse :d
Got my bag back pretty quickly and out through customs no problem.Not a great time to be arriving, with everyone going to work, and my old man being away, meant I had to make my own way home from the airport. The taxis at the airport are a rip off, and I refuse on principle to use them, even to the point that I wouldn't when i was travelling for work and could claim it back. Last time I had to, coming in in the middle of the night from A European away game it was £32 for a journey that takes less than 20 minutes :O
There is a bus,No. 500, that takes you into the city centre along the motorway and cost just £4-50, so I took it at 8am, all the way into Buchanan Bus Station and then got a local service bus back out to where I live and was home for ten past nine. Struggled through the rest of the day without going to sleep to try and bring me back into local time.
I had an absolutely fantastic time in New York, and would really like to thank all the people I met over there who added so much to the experience.
