Glasgow; Why I Love My City

By |November 8th, 2018|Destinations, Scotland|0 Comments

I’m fiercely passionate about my home city, Glasgow. I’ve lived just outside the city for my entire life and have always loved it.

A massive section of the Botanic Gardens are covered in lights that will dazzle you as you walk around. It’s pretty much the perfect way to embrace the darkness now that the clocks […]

If you’ve never been to Glasgow before then let me warn you before your visit…it rains a lot! The west of Scotland is pretty much the wettest part of the country and Glasgow has around 200 days of rain per year. That’s more days with rain than without!

A couple of weekends ago I finally went somewhere I’ve wanted to go for ages. I went to Big Feed, Scotland’s biggest indoor street food market!

The weather during my time in this area was incredible, which I’m sure definitely contributed to my enjoyment, but I think it’s […]
