Help us Create an Australian Biosphere in the UK (Letter to the Care Package Fairy)

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

We gotta say, we don’t miss the bloody spiders, the stinking heat or the dust storms.

There's a few things we wish we could’ve brought with us, or could get over here. That’s why we’re writing to you, the Care Package Fairy.

We need your help to create an Aussie Biosphere in Scotland. It should be about 3m x 3m and let us do the following things - with a few modifications.

Glasgow City - New Years Day - 1 January 2019

Glasgow City - New Years Day - 1 January 2019

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.

Glasgow's History in Brief

Glasgow's History in Brief

When we arrived in 2016, Glasgow's population was estimated to be around 600,000; with more than 1.2 million in the Greater Glasgow area. It is the biggest city in Scotland and the third biggest in the UK after London and Birmingham. As proud Auswegians, we are in awe that we live in a city that had established trading routes to America and which had built many of it's modern day icons, years before Britain had established penal colonies in Australia in the late 1770's.

There's a lot to the Glasgow Story. The following information is but a sample of its rich history.

Things I love (...and dislike) about living in Glasgow, Scotland: Pros and Cons

It would seem to me that these days a lot of people love making lists. So in keeping with that idea I've compiled a list after living in Scotland for the past 7 months. Time has flown by and with that I have come to appreciate living here. Here would be Glasgow. As with everything, there is good and bad that goes with living anywhere and that includes living in Scotland.
