Scotland was a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
Today was my last day and I am currently in an airport after many hours of traveling (and many hours still ahead to go).
Today I am reflecting on my journey that was Scotland.
What did I learn?
The most valuable lesson: you make human connections wherever you go. The connections you make are much more important than the places you go.
One of my favorite places I went to in Scotland was the Highlands. We had an amazing bus tour (thanks to our driver Stuart!) The scenery was beautiful and I gained respect for the Scottish culture. I learned that Scots are prideful. Strong, proud, kind and brave. That’s how I would describe the history and culture of Scotland.
After the first two weeks of being in Scotland my body finally got used to all the walking. I got to know the city of Edinburgh very well in that short month. And I had just finally got down the currency right when it was time to leave.
My favorite days in Scotland where when it was pouring rain. One day it poured all day long. Never stopping and never letting up.
Scotland was remarkable and I plan to go back someday to finish my journey that ended too soon. (ONE MONTH IS NOT ENOUGH)
I also went to London which taught me that I’m pretty good with a map and can get to places all by myself. I love their Underground transport system.
There’s so much that happened that I can’t put it all in one post.
However I’ll never forget this trip to Scotland. Studying abroad exposes you to different lifestyles and gives you the chance to see the world from an entirely new perspective.
