Ok, so everyone knows that studying abroad is awesome because you get to go to school in a different country. However, everyone also knows that when in Europe you tend to travel a lot because the countries are so close by!
Alright so with that in mind, do you guys recall that I am an undocumented student? After speaking extensively with my lawyer about whether I should travel Europe or not, he unfortunately advised me not to leave the U.K.
So you can only imagine how disappointed I was hearing that I shouldn’t leave the U.K., when I wanted to see Italy, Iceland, Norway and specially Greece. But after a lot of thought I realized that traveling outside of the U.K. was not worth the risk and potential loss.
However I knew I was not gonna give up the opportunity to travel as much as possible. So this past weekend I went to Edinburgh, Scotland! Shhhh…no one tell London, but I fell in love with Edinburgh. It is the most beautiful town I have ever been in. From Arthur’s Seat to Old Town and The Royal Mile.
The point is, that although I am not able to explore Europe there is more then enough to see in the beautiful United Kingdom. That said, I have planned to visit Belfast, Northern Ireland, Cardiff, Wales, Aberdeen and of course, Edinburgh, Scotland.
Always remember that no matter what the situation is there is always a way to make the best of it.
