#LightUpKelvinWay

A different approach to my usual weekly segment. 

I want to write a post today to spread the word about a campaign set up by The Tab Glasgow to help install CCTV cameras along a road in West End Glasgow. For any of you who do not know Glasgow that well, Kelvin Way is home to one of the most popular parks in Glasgow: Kelvingrove. When paired next to a University campus and a short walk to student accommodation and concert venues such as the SSE Hydro, the road is heavily used by student and members of the community.

An open letter to Manchester

Dear Manchester,

I would be lying if I said that you’ve always had my heart because you haven’t. Before I left your tarmac streets in September, I thought you were dark, dull and dingy.

The quirkiness of Glasgow and its University is one that surprised me, when seeing a sign reading ‘Defend the craft, drink more beer’ I knew it was a place I’d fit in (no I don’t drink but I love the humour). I love Glasgow & hope to soon return. Hopefully next time I’ll have a place at the University, fingers crossed!

Here’s part 1 of the back log of all the adventures I’ve been on and places I’ve seen over the last couple of months without speaking to you all. I went to St Andrews to look the University because unfortunately it’s that time for me. The year to fly the nest so to speak, but with that comes all the new adventures and memories. Here’s just a snippet of my time in St Andrews & some of the beautiful scenery it holds. If you ever get the chance, go to Scotland. You won’t regret it.
