Differences between the UK v US

For my last vlog, instead of a travel video I decided to do one about the differences between the UK and the US. I know I’ve written a couple of blogs about the differences, but this way you get to hear the Brits opinions as well. This whole vlog is extremely chaotic, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t get to explain any difference fully because I kept getting interrupted, but you will get the just of it hopefully. Also, in case anyone was curious, I had to put the MNU logo in because some people, were doing inappropriate motions. It took us forever to actually get something that would sort of work, but we got there in the end. I am so grateful for having these vlogs to remember my time at NTC because without a doubt it has been the best year of my life. Cheers to everyone who has kept up with these because I know there was a lot. Honestly, if you ever get the chance to study abroad do it. I have learned so much about the UK culture, about the US culture that I had no idea about, and about myself. Studying abroad will change your life.

Mountain climbing in the Lake District and Blackpool

Last week we decided that we wanted to go down to the Lake District for the day and climb a mountain/hill. It felt like a mountain, but I think technically it is classified as a hill. Then we were on our way back to NTC and saw a sign for Blackpool and decided to take a detour through there before heading back to campus!

Newcastle 2.0

Two weeks ago I took my second trip down to Newcastle. My friend, Karl, was performing in Durham Cathedral for a youth event that his church was supporting. We decided to go down for the weekend and go to the beach, eat some of the best fish and chips I’ve ever had, and see a few castles! We saw Bamburgh castle which was right on the beach and was near an adorable little seaside town. Then Sunday we headed up to Durham and spent the day there and hung out in the cathedral most of the day.

The Capital of Europe

This last weekend I decided to take a weekend trip to Brussels, Belgium which is also known as the Capital of Europe! This was my first trip that I have taken alone and it was really nerve wracking at first. Being in a foreign country all on your own where you don’t speak the language is pretty scary, but it is also extremely empowering when you realize that you can navigate around all on your own! I met some really amazing people along the way and even though I took this trip on my own, I was actually rarely alone for most of it! Literally all I ate for those three days was waffles, frites (fries), and chocolate. There was a chocolate shop every five steps you took and every single one of them had samples of chocolate for you to try. I didn’t have any plans coming to Belgium except to get a waffle. It was so worth taking a trip to a foreign country just for their delicious golden waffles- I would totally recommend it!
