Glasgow is an edgy city, reborn from its industrial roots with a modern, metropolitan vibe. It is the third largest city in the UK, and the largest city in Scotland, making it a hub for world-renowned research and academia. Previously seen as a “gritty” city due to its development in the industrial revolution, Glasgow has evolved into a metropolis of art and culture. It is a truly multicultural city, drawing people from all over the world whether they come to work or study in Glasgow.

Edinburgh is the quirky capital city of Scotland. It is situated in the lowlands but it does not take long to get to the rolling hills and highest mountains of the UK.

Dare to Done

last year

Were an Aussie expat family (mum, dad and two sons) living in Glasgow, Scotland. We moved to Scotland Land of the Brave on a UK Ancestry Visa in September 2016. We plan to become UK citizens and hold dual Australian-UK citizenship by the end of 2022. We have British blood, Scottish spirit and Aussie pride. We say it like it is and if you dont like it you can move along.

I am originally a Florida girl, but made Washington, DC my home before settling in Edinburgh, Scotland. I was seduced by an accent and moved to the UK, over two years ago, with my husband. Cheers Blondie is my highly entertaining expat blog that shares my adventures of living abroad and pokes fun at the cultural differences between America and the UK. I write about my day-to-day life in Scotland, traveling around Europe and life as a wife to a Scot.
