S.O.S. Straya: Care Package Needed for Aussies in the UK

It’s been more than 2 years now since we traded in our thongs (flip-flops) and sunnies (sunglasses) to move to Glasgow, Scotland.

Take a walk with us around Glasgow City on New Years Day - 1 January 2019. So quiet. Very few people and cars. See the streets without the distractions. We walked from Hope Street to the Necropolis (left to right of the city centre) and from Cathedral Street to Glasgow Green and the River Clyde (top to bottom of the city centre). We found a new Billy Connolly mural as well among the beautiful street murals.
