After 4 years spent living in Glasgow, I sometimes forget I am an expat and tend to be a bit blasé of the city I live in. Same walk to work every morning, same people wearing the same clothes, same subway stations and buildings all around.
But sometimes, the sun might decide to shine between two apocalyptic downpours, street art might surprise you on the corner of a street, you may discover a new shop where you had not been before, or hidden jewels.
On these moments, take your phone out and capture it. Then, collect things in a random blogpost to entice people to come and visit you before you leave (wink wink) or simply remind them to open their eyes to what their city has to offer, wherever they live.
Gorgeous Glasgow in a few shots…
The old mansions of Charing Cross & Kelvinbridge on Great Western Road :
Flowers blooming at the Botanics Gardens & overly friendly squirrels:
The University main building viewed from the library on a sunny day
Glasgow had one of the strongest YES vote on the referendum
Street art (or marketing…) here and there
The Clyde and BBC Scotland on a night stroll & the Canal at Speirs Wharf
And you, where do you live and what do you love about your city?
