Glasgow

Things we love:

Everything costs less… compared to London anyway.

The New York grid structure was based on Glasgow’s.

Everyone is ridiculously nice – some offer tours for no reason, they just wanna show off their city.

It’s the 4th largest city in Europe.

Things we wish we’d known:

It all smells a bit like fried food wherever you go (is that the deep fried Mars Bar?).

That accent is strong, concentrate.

The weather can do anything – sun, rain and snow, be prepared.

Wet Wet Wet are from Glasgow as is Sir Alex Ferguson – take your pick!
