Oh, hai

Okay, so things got a little busy. I mean, REALLY busy. While in Oxford, being inside on my computer was basically the last thing I wanted to be doing with my time; and when I was on my computer, I was working on school. So here are some highlights from my trip since my last post:

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta (completely unforgettable).


A weekend in Glasgow (and a day in Edinburgh) with a best friend!


Saw Dolly the cloned sheep at the Scottish National Museum!


Went to the Victoria and Albert Museum:


Went to the Tate Britain and the Tate Modern


And St. Paul’s


And Postman’s Park


We went on class Field Trips to Hampton Court Palace


and Blenheim Palace.


Some friends and I also saw a production of Pygmalion (it was amazing)!


I also went to the Churchill War Rooms, the Natural History Museum, played soccer, saw the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum, drank beer, won first prize at a pub quiz night, ate lots of really yummy food, cried at the Imperial War Museum, bought a fantastic trench coat, made some really wonderful friends, ate at a Jamie Oliver restaurant (best polenta of my life), learned A LOT of British History and wrote a pretty good paper. Oh and I guess it was kinda a big deal, but I was chosen to sit at the high table for our honorary dinner:


All in all, it was pretty much one of the best experiences of my life.  Halfway through my flight home I asked the flight attendant for a cup of tea and burst into tears realizing that the trip was officially over (and I wouldn’t be drinking British tea anymore). Maybe I should just chalk that one up to lack of sleep, but either way, I had an amazing time.

I’m going to (try) and go back to blogging regularly now. I keep coming across things to share and then remember that my blog has been a little dormant and then I feel guilty and sad and basically things should change. This is (potentially) my last year in Canada, and I’m trying to make it count.
