Gosh, it feels like forever since I’ve thought about anything blog-related… it’s just been such an exciting and overwhelming week as I’ve tried to adjust to life across the pond! I arrived in Glasgow, Scotland, on January 5th to start my five-month long study abroad experience at the University of Glasgow. I am beyond ecstatic to have finally made it here, as I’ve been trying to come to Scotland since pre-Covid (and have wanted to study abroad basically my whole life before that, not to be dramatic or anything). Traveling during a pandemic isn’t quite how I imagined the experience, but it’s safe to say that all the stress and worry I was feeling pre-departure has melted away now that I arrived.

For those of you who don’t know, I will be studying abroad at the University of Glasgow in Scotland for the upcoming semester, from January to May. My long-time followers know what a saga it has been to get to this point… I originally started the study abroad process in 2019 and was supposed to go to Scotland in the fall of 2020. Obviously, Covid had different plans. A few re-applications and a whole lotta disappointment later, it looks like this dream will finally come true! I, of course, won’t fully believe it until I’m kissing the Scottish ground, but I otherwise have my plane tickets booked, housing contract signed, and bags packed. Glasgow, here I come!

To commemorate the past three and a half years I spent at school in Denver, I decided it was about time to share a blog post rounding up my favorite restaurants and activities in the Mile High City. I used to feel like I didn’t get out of my campus bubble very much—especially freshman year—but I realized I’ve done a lot of fun exploration throughout my time in Colorado, even given the complications of the pandemic. I hope you enjoy this Denver travel guide! Continue reading “Mile High City Travel Guide”
