So nine days ago I boarded a plane in Jacksonville and then 12 hours later I found myself in London. I remember getting off the plane and into the left passenger side of the car which was picking me up from the airport and being in shock. None of it felt real. Was this really another country? Was this really happening? To be honest, I don’t think that any of it has fully sunk in yet.
I arrived in Durham, UK on Wednesday September 25 (25 Sept, for all my British friends) and since then I have been trying to get settled into my room and my new college. While I was in London I took over 1,000 pictures of various sights and views around the city from the outlying countryside to the busy streets, the beautiful architecture and the fascinating museums. There was so much to see I only barely scratched the surface.
On the train ride up to Durham, I finally got a chance to begin editing some of the pictures. I only got about half way through. This upcoming week is Induction (Orientation, for my American friends), and classes do not start until the 8th of October, therefore I should have some time to finish editing pictures and writing down some of the really cool experiences I had around London. Because I did not want to leave anyone empty handed, I went through the whole week and picked out a few selected favorites to tease what is to come. Click on one of them to open up the gallery. Thank you all for your prayers and support so far. I definitely think that the best is yet to come!
