Winter Holiday

Just before submitting my dissertation (when everything was 99% ready) I had to have a small holiday. This period was extremely stressful for me and not even Christmas was not 100% relaxing due to my project, thus this 3 days holiday was so welcome. As I have done in summer, I decided to share with you some of the photos (this time you will find maths together with just landscapes and buildings ^_^ ).

Me and my boyfriend decided to visit some friends in Glasgow . Unfortunately the weather was our friend, but we have snow, rain, wind and ice all together ( expect this weather in January in Scotland ^_^ ). Though, I have some nice photos of the city:

Due to this incredible weather, we decided that inside was better (obviously), thus we have spent a lot of quality time just playing games (card games), talking and eating chocolate:

Even if the weather did not let us do much, we had to go and see the University of Glasgow :

An afternoon was spent in Riverside Museum, having fun with their interactive displays, and also I had to find maths related displays ^_^ :

In the small time we had between rainfalls we took a look at the Botanical Garden, and I fell in love with this little ferns. They are such nice representations of the mathematical concept of spiral, that I could not take my eyes from them.

The building did not impress me at all, and the interior was a little creepy if you ask me personally (especially some of the drawings with children), but the information I have found inside about how mathematics was taught is awesome. I have seen interesting old books, practical tests and more:
