This post was written as part of the Club Carlson Global Traveler program; a three-week, eight-country adventure I’m taking through Europe, paid for and compensated by Club CarlsonSM. During the trip, I’m exploring the world of hotel points and how to take advantage of accommodations and upgrades with various strategies. And if you share this post (and others) on Twitter and Facebook with the #GlobalTravelerNora tag , they might even give me 1 million points to give to you (read on to find out how)…..
In all cases, opinions expressed herein are my own; don’t worry – I haven’t sold my soul.
“So….how cheesy and totally touristy is it of me to have loved Buchanan Street?” I ask one of the staff at the Park Inn by Radisson in Glasgow, where I’m staying.
She looks at me quizzically, as if not knowing what the “right answer” should be.
“Go on,” I say. “Be honest.”
“It’s pretty touristy,” she says, somewhat relieved at her license to tell it like it is.
“Excellent,” I reply. “Then I’m right on mission”.
The mission I’m referring to is Embracing my Inner Tourist; a style of travel I’m not accustomed to. With a lightning-quick itinerary as part of my Club Carlson Global Travelers European adventure, I have about two days at each stop. As such, the best way to capture the flavour of each city, is to simply be a tourist with reckless abandon.
This is just a teaser for this my full post, which appears on the Club CarlsonSM website. You’ll want to read it; I discuss the Glasgow kiss, Weegies, weather, and why I basically have the keys to the place.
