Beginning of Travels

This week has been very exciting, I visited Tower Bridge, received a box of cookies from grandma, planned trips to Scotland and Amsterdam, and ended the week by visiting Megan and then going to Brighton. It was so nice to see someone I know. Classes are still fine, but starting this week some I have to begin writing my essays because deadlines are approaching. Monday I went with Deanna and Emily to visit Tower Bridge. We had seen it briefly on our boat ride to Greenwich but we wanted to go back to actually see it. It was quite nice.

One of the most exciting things was receiving a package from grandma!!! It was a box filled with cookies! Me and some of the girls on my floor have been really enjoying them!

This week I also have planned trips to Scotland and Amsterdam. I will be visiting both of these places over weekends and I am so excited. Also when I go to Amsterdam me and the girls I am traveling with are staying on a house boat! Friday was a pretty busy day for me, I had to visit a museum for my history course and then get a train down to Eastbourne to visit Megan. It was a long day but I was so glad to see a familiar face.

Saturday we both took the train to Brighton and did a little walking around and explored the area.

I am now finding myself more adjusted to the culture and every day is getting easier. I can begin to tell that saying goodbye to this place is going to be hard, but good thing I have three more months of this wonderful life.
