Glasgow colour walk

Just over a week ago I took part in one of the best events I've ever been to - the Glasgow colour walk organised by In Colourful Company. I'd looked on enviously when these happened in other cities, so when I found there was going to be one in Scotland I immediately put it on my calendar (and started planning an outfit!).

We were meeting at Partick station, which was somewhere I'd never been before, so I was relieved when I got there and immediately saw Tracy (@aspiedoodles) who turned out to be just as lovely in real life as she is online!

Our first stop was SWG3 which has loads of amazing murals which made fantastic backgrounds for our photos. We then went to The Hidden Lane, which has been on my list of places to visit for ages, and I'll have to go back as I didn't even explore any of the shops! We stopped off at Tantrum Doughnuts, where I had one of the best doughnuts I've ever tasted (somewhere else I need to go back to, and soon!), then ended up with a pinata bash beside another mural.

We got many smiles, waves, toots from passing cars, and questions from curious passers-by along the way. I really loved the old couple on the vintage bus who waved at us and took our photo!

I met so many amazing people on the walk. Everyone was really happy and chatty, and I felt really at ease in their company. I know that a lot of people (like me) were a bit nervous about going along and meeting new people, and I hope they all enjoyed it just as much as I did. And apologies to those I haven't done a collage photo of in this post - I loved you all but I came home with more photos of some people than others! There are more photos on Dropbox here.

And the goodie bag - wow!!! This was a free event, so those donating to the goodie bag were just doing it out of the goodness of their hearts, and they were so amazingly generous! I waited until I got home to open mine, and I was almost moved to tears by the generosity of those who had contributed!

Thanks so much to the organisers of the walk - you took us to wonderful, colourful places!
