Glasgow Makes Grocery Shopping Exciting: My Walk to Tesco

Anyone who has studied in Great Britain knows how central Tesco, a popular supermarket chain, is to everyday life. With decent prices and locations at what seems like every corner, it is every university students go-to. I pass two on my walk home from the University of Glasgow and I usually stop in every day to pick up whatever I need for that night’s dinner. However, the smaller Tesco Metros don’t always have the selection I need, so I make the 10 minute trek to the huge Tesco nearby.  To get there, I walk along a beautiful tree and apartment-lined canal, which makes every trip special.
