Here is a recent picture of me in Eugene, Oregon a few weeks prior to my travels.

I leave for London in five short days. I can not believe that a trip that I have been planning for months is nearly here! I am getting more and more anxious as the time of my departure gets closer. I am thrilled to have this opportunity and feel so blessed to be able to go on such an amazing adventure.

Having never been to London, I am not quite sure what to expect. I am thankful that English will be spoken but I am also aware of the strong accents that I will be coming across. I know that there will be cultural differences between London and my hometown (Portland, Oregon) and I am excited to discover them along the way. I am excited to meet people from all over the world, as I have heard London is a culturally diverse city. I’m hoping to drink lots of tea while I am abroad and try some new food as well. I can’t wait to see different historical sites and learn more about the English culture.
