A Great Scottish Adventure

Tomorrow at 3:30pm I will be taking off to Raykjavik, Iceland. After a two hour layover, I will take off to London Heathrow, and from there I will make my way to Kings Cross Station, board a train, and choo choo to Edinburgh.

Hi everyone, it’s me again. I am reviving the blog as I will be spending this coming semester studying at the University of Edinburgh. I am nearly jumping out of my seat in excitement as I sit and write this blog post.

About a year and a half ago, I decided that I wanted to go abroad for at least one semester because even though I love Wooster, sometimes it is very isolating and small and I wanted to do something new. After a frankly quite challenging and sometimes really awful 10 months in Brazil, I decided to go to a country where they speak English (I have gotten enough comments about the accent already, just stop) and where they had a similar system to that of the States so while I will still be going on an adventure, I will also have enough familiarity and confidence to take myself to the University of Edinburgh and thrive. So I talked to my advisor and my friends and my parents and started planning.

Thanks to my mom and dad for supporting me in this new adventure, even though I am partly convinced that my dad just wants to have an excuse to go on a Scotch and Whiskey tour.

The next time I write I will be in the UK! Cheers from across the pond!
