GLASGOW, Out, Travel

The only place of calm in Glasgow!


I was thinking the other day that our lives are full of stress. We stress about things little or big, work or family, friends or foes. We stress because we are afraid. We are afraid of a future that may never come to us, we do tend to think that the worst is going to happen when times are not easy. This of course is a plain misunderstanding. Things will not necessarily get worse just because something negative has happened nor will the world stop going round because of our problems. We tend to blow up problems in our head like balloons and most of the time the size of these are nothing but air! When we pause a little we can see that around us there is nothing but calm and we can easily find this calm in nature around us. I have struggled with stress many times in the past and I am sure there will be sometimes in the future. But I have learned that, like all things, it goes away and what is left is a big relief that there are still things around me beautiful and calm that overpower any misery under the sun.

The photos were taken by myself at the Reservoir in Milngavie and I cannot recommend it enough for long walks when the sun appears. I am lucky to live right next to it so I take the opportunity to visit as often as the weather permits.


What is your favourite way to relax?

    It is very easy to get wrapped up in the daily craziness. Nature walks truly help to put things in perspective. We need to take the walks like this often so we don’t forget that sun rises every day no matter what. xx

      Hi Zuma, you are so right! I find these walks so inspiring also :-) Nature does the best colour combinations ever!

    Beautiful. I fully agree with you, we get stressed more than we should. A walk in a beautiful place always helps :)

    These pictures are absolutely stunning. Nature has an amazing way of getting us to unwind. I like to go on a jog or pick up a latte from a nearby coffee shop and walk around my neighborhood.

      Thank you Monica! Mmmm a latte sounds like the best thing for walks like this. Unfortunately there is no cafe in Milngavie Reservoir but I think that it is a great business opportunity for someone, they would be packed!

    What a lovely place to have next door. The views of the Glasgow skyline are just lovely! Great outfit too, I wish I had the courage to wear printed trousers!

    • GreekGirlGlasgow

      Hi Lindsay thank you so much for your lovely comments. These trousers are Zara and are full of kiwi prints. I really like them cause they are stretchy and comfortable and they make me feel like summer. You should definitely go for it and send me your link with photos for me to see :-)
      Looking forward to it.
