I’ve lived in Glasgow for 9 years in May.
Before Glasgow, I spent a couple of years in Edinburgh, then, before that, I moved around England for a while, but was mostly around the Liverpool, Manchester, Chester area.
Honestly, I wasn’t very keen on Glasgow for the first couple of years. Couldn’t put my finger on it, but it didn’t feel like “home”
That has well and truly changed as I settled down with my wife and had kids.
I’ve become pretty fond of this city, and I’m very happy to raise my kids here.
One of my favourite things though is that I feel safe.
I’ve stayed in some dodgy places over the years, including places I didn’t feel safe going out after dark. That just isn’t the case here, especially in the south side.
It’s also a great location, being within driving distance of some of the world’s best mountain biking both up north and down by the borders!
We’ll be moving out of Glasgow in 2019, just looking for somewhere bigger for my family. Out of Glasgow, maybe over Stirling or Falkirk way just seems like we’d be able to get more for our money.
I’m definitely going to miss Glasgow.
