I'm Back! My Trip to the United Kingdom

IMG_9010 2.JPG

Hello! If you follow my blog closely you'll know that I've been on a bit of a hiatus for the last three weeks. I've been taking a well deserved break from productivity and traveling quite a bit, as well as adjusting to some exciting life changes. Being able to travel to Scotland and England before the Bone Marrow transplant was a blessing. I learned a lot about the country and the history, as well as a lot about different religious aspects of the places we went. The trip was organized by my universities humanities department and was led by two professors, one in Religion and one in English. The group was small and easy to travel with, which was nice considering how much we moved around. We started out in Oxford, where we visited the university and also took a day trip to Salisbury to see the Cathedral and Stonehenge. Next we went to London for a couple of days where we went to Museums and the Globe as well as Kensington Gardens. Afterwards, we spent the rest of the time in Scotland, starting in Fort William in the north, and then going to Edinburgh and Anstruther. Fort William was actually my favorite place that we went, just because it's so beautiful and peaceful. I've wanted to go to so many of those places for so long, and being there was a blessing. Scotland is just a beautiful as I'd imagined and England just as wet. Here are some photos from my trip! If you're interested in reading more about it, all of my activities are documented on my Instagram.

P.S. I'm back to my regular schedule this week! I took a couple of days to myself after getting back to rest, but now you can expect my blog posting to go back to once or twice a week as usual. As the BMT gets closer, things will begin to adjust themselves, but for most of June, my goal is to work on my manuscript and keep up my blog as much as possible. Thank you for the support as always!
