These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I was in Glasgow the other weekend for fun and beer.

    Did the open top bus tour - which certainly blew away the morning's hangover and was quite interesting really.

    Then drank lots of beer - the good thing about Glasgow is people in pubs expect you to be drunk - sometimes when in other parts of the UK you get the feeling people in pubs get confused by people who have had a few drinks.

    Didn't have a fried mars bar though.

    I agree.

    Edinburgh is a city only built for tourists. You walk down the street and you barely hear any Scottish voices, most of the people in Edinburgh are either english, foreigners or tourists.

    Been living in Edinburgh for 6-7 years now but I'd move to Glasgow in a heartbeat. More vibrant, diverse and with more genuine people. Better music scene. Food and drink scene is comparable to Edinburgh. You get more for your buck if you plan on settling down and buying a house. Glasgow just rules.

    Edinburgh is brilliant.
    Glasgow is a barely domesticated tulip-hole.
