With only a few days left in Glasgow, I wanted to share a quick blog post about some of the little things I miss from home and the U.S. more generally (and what I will miss from Scotland once I leave).

Going to Wales was tentatively on my bucket list for abroad, but I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make it happen once I actually arrived in Scotland. I was grateful that my parents were just as interested in visiting the country as I was, so we took a tour to North Wales from Manchester during our UK spring break extravaganza. I’m excited to share some of the pics with you today! Continue reading “A Day in North Wales”
