For those of you who’ve been following my twitter or if we’re friends on facebook, or just friends in general, then you are probably aware of my upcomming trip abroad. Next friday, I leave for Edinburgh, Scotland for a 4 month study abroad trip. I will be studying at the University of Edinburgh, a top rated University in the UK! I am very nervous/excited about this trip, and can’t wait to share about all of it here. My first post will probably just prior to my departure, talking about just how I went about packing for a 4 month long trip across the Atlantic. Here are some interesting things about my trip that I know about already:
-I’m living across the street from the Scottish Parliament, near Holyrood Park
-The 4 classes I will be taking are: Fluid Mechanics, Differential Equations, German, and Scottish Studies. Lets just say I’m most looking forward to the second two, but the first two are required towards my degree (Mechanical Engineering)
-I will be living in a 5 person flat, which is like an apartment, without a shared space. We do have a small kitchen and a “water closet”
-I’m flying Virgin Atlantic, departing Logan airport at 7:45 pm, and will arrive in Scotland sometime the following afternoon.
