Tigers, gingers, bagpipes, drums and drams. What more do you want!
Great people. Beautiful scenery. Non-deadly animals. Amazing architecture. Delectable spirits (whisky and gin in particular). Quirky differences. Every day is a school day.
One week it was green and then it was red. Like something our of War of the Worlds.
Glasgow certainly has four seasons. We arrived in Autumn, in mid-September 2016. It got more spectacular as the days went on. All the way to Winter. When the days got shorter but no less beautiful.
There are 21 bridges running across the River Clyde, all within easy walking distance of Glasgow City.
Foot bridges, suspension bridges, railway bridges and general traffic bridges. Most of the bridges are between the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) and Glasgow Green. Further down the way is the Clyde Tunnel that runs right under the River.
Even though Glasgow shares its latitude with Canada and Moscow, it’s climate is a lot milder than the rest of Scotland.
Winter of 2016-17 saw early snow but milder temperatures throughout. Actually, Glasgow and many parts of Scotland saw some of the warmest and mildest temperatures recorded in nearly 100 years. Thank you, Universe for making our first winter so bearable.
