My bags are packed. Well, mostly anyway. I have just reserved an aisle seat on my flight and printed my boarding pass! It seems like just yesterday I was applying for the program and 24 hours from now I will be on the plane flying to England! I am so excited! Mom and Dad hung out in my room tonight as went over my checklist several times. Hopefully I have not forgotten anything. I just can't wrap my head around the fact that I am going to another country to study Biology and will be there for an entire month. It seems like such a long time to be gone but I know that time will completely fly by. 

My flight leaves tomorrow, Friday, May 31st, at 7:25 p.m. We arrive at Heathrow, (London) around 1 in the afternoon. From there we will be transported to West Bay, which I understand is a good couple of hours away. The group will be all be staying near each other but we all have different places. Brooke and I, as well as another girl, Karilyn, will be staying in a cottage just off the beach. How cool is that? Below is a link with pictures if you want to check it out.

We should have internet but I do not expect to be on the computer until Sunday. We have a class dinner on Sunday night and then we will begin classes on Tuesday! 
I am hoping to remember to keep this updated with news and photos but if I start slacking send me a facebook message! 

Lots of Love


  1. This is an awesome blog so far! I'll be transferring from a university to NAU next fall and can't wait to study abroad myself. I like reading the student blogs until then and you've got a fun one to read. Thanks for posting about it!


  2. Thanks! It is a really great experience! Good luck with your transfer! NAU is awesome!
