In the fall of 2006 I completed the last semester of my BA in Glasgow, Scotland, while on exchange at the University of Strathclyde. It was my first time moving away from home, my first time travelling out of Canada alone, and my first taste of what the wider world has to offer.
Since these were the pre-Facebook days (did they really exist?) I kept family and friends updated via good, old fashioned emails. I’ve slightly edited them and posted them below for your perusal. It was on this trip that I met some of the most amazing people I currently have the priviledge of knowing and travelling with, so it is helpful to present our stories for your reference ~ I know they will be an ongoing part of my travelling existence!
I hope you enjoy these earlier attempts and don’t forget to check out the pictures here.
