For my Fall Break adventures, I decided to visit some friends who are also studying abroad this year. The first one I visited is spending the whole year in London, England at the University of Roehampton. She is also a junior at my college. After a day or two with her, I hopped over to Glasgow, Scotland to visit my best friend’s older brother (who I am also close to) where he, my best friend, and I spent another day or two together. He’s currently doing a master’s program at the University of Glasgow. Unlike the American master’s program, the three years is condensed into one intense year in Scotland. It was really heartwarming to see them again, but it did make me a bit homesick to need to leave them again to go back to France.
In London we spent a LOT of time walking around. Of course, we went past all the big monuments, but most of our time was dedicated to shopping. The retail therapy did me good. It was in Glasgow that I visited more museums, churches, and other historical or national sights (The statue of the Duke of Wellington is hilarious in person).
This was my first time traveling this semester, and I wish I hadn’t waited this long. I’ve gotten a taste and I can’t wait for more. Allons-y!
