Today I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from Edinburgh and a list of fun activities and things to do in the city. Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, located on the Firth of Forth near the North Sea.

If you read my blog post about differences in education between the U.S. and Scotland, then you probably already know I was a little disappointed with the academic aspect of my study abroad experience. Regardless, I still managed to learn (and make!) some interesting things!  Continue reading “Study Abroad Semester in Review”
