As part of my Thankful November theme, today’s post is an ‘I Spy’ photo story. So, here goes!
I spy ten things that make me thankful to live in Stirling, Scotland:
The Stirling Castle: What a breath-taking castle! And local residents (that’s me!) get free admission. So you know where I’ll be spending a lot of time!
The University of Stirling: How lucky am I that such a beautiful city is home to a great university with a media research centre.
The Stirling Smith: Stirling has a fascinating history, and the Smith tells the story so well. They even have lectures and events—one of which I’m attending later this month. (Story to follow!)
Easy Rail Links: I’m a 10-minute walk to the train station and from there I’m only an hour to Edinburgh or 4 hours to my in-laws in Billingham.
Compact City Centre: Everything you need is right there. And I’m less than 10 minutes away from it all!
Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe: An entire shop dedicated to sweeties. It’s like a little corner of heaven right here in Stirling!
The Burgh Coffee House: It’s great to have such an inviting place to sit and relax whilst sipping a cup of tea and surfing the Internet with free WiFi.
The Junk Rooms: Friday night cocktails are amazing here. It’s not just the drinks but the comfortable atmosphere, too!
Good Friends: Having an amazing friend like Rebecca here is fantastic. The fact that she’s a great local guide is an added bonus!
A Re-discovered Smile: The thing I’m more thankful for in Stirling? My re-discovered smile. Life is good here. And that is really something to be thankful for.
