Glasgow

Posted: March 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

In search of the prefect outfit for my birthday, a friend and I went to Glasgow last Wednesday after class. One of the greatest parts of living in the UK is the availability of the public transportation. For around £8 I can visit the largest city in Scotland. Glasgow doesn’t have the same archaic beauty as Edinburgh it still presents a great wonder to observe. Walking around Glasgow it was fun to see all of the hustle and bustle of urban life. We spent some time relaxing in a cafe called simply “Eat” and watching the people of Glasgow walk by. There are around 8 shopping centers in the city. Two of them are on each end of the main street. The train will drop you off two streets over and is only an approximate five minute walk from many different shops.

While I thoroughly enjoyed Glasgow, I did find out how much Stirling has to offer. Many of the shops in Glasgow are also in the Stirling City Center. For being the same size as Grand Forks, the city center is very nice.

In the end, we ended up spending the majority of our time (and money) in H&M, a shop available in Stirling. Moral of the story, you don’t have to travel to get the best shopping. Often the best experiences are right on our own doorsteps!
