    Glasgow, Scotland is a city rich in culture as described in my previous article featuring the top rated attractions when planning your trip.

    Today I wish to focus on perhaps the most influential and important museum in the world for those art lovers!  A trip to the Kelvingrove should remain top on your list along with the British Museum & the Louvre (Paris).  To be honest, I had not realized the wealth of collections ranging from the Impressionists to the famed Glasgow Boys who revolutionized Scottish painting – similar to the Pre-Raphaelites from the United Kingdom.

  • Georgia Choir Represents US at Cornish International Festival

    No one has ever explained to me why the hairs at the back of my neck stand on end when I listen to a choir in full voice, but, what I do know is that it’s a ‘good to be alive’ feeling all the same.

    So, imagine combining the resounding sounds of 70 choirs of all ages and many nationalities with the magisterial natural beauty of Cornwall, the UK’s westernmost county. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

    So best book your flights and tickets and head for the 2015 Cornwall International Male Voice Choral Festival.
