My Semester Abroad
I'm spending this semester in Cambridge, England on a study abroad program though my school, and after a day of traveling and a couple of days of settling down, I wanted to post here and say hello from the UK! The town is absolutely beautiful...old and English, loaded with history (the college is 800 years old!), but also new and trendy as well. When I got here, it was covered with snow and completely picturesque. Now it's melted a bit (thanks to warm 34 degree weather...) but only to reveal adorable cobblestone streets and wide swaths of grass (with strict restrictions against walking on them!) below. I have yet to really get a hang of where things are around the town, but it' slowly coming to me. So, for the next couple of months, I'll be updating with pictures of England, things I've seen, funny cultural differences, and just general news from across the pond!
