Edinburgh may be the primary site of my Study Abroad explorations, but it certainly won’t be the only place! In a mere 10 days, my flatmate Abby and i will be off to Amsterdam for a long weekend of Van Gogh paintings and canal rides. Amsterdam’s been on my top 10 list for a long while (the Van Gogh thing, again) and to think i’ll be jetsetting off so soon is kind of unfathomable.
But the country i’m presently living in also has its own unbridled landscapes and mysteries to explore. To help focus my travels while in Scotland outside of Edinburgh, i’ve crafted a bucket list of the top 6 things i want to explore and see!
1. See the cathedral ruins at St. Andrews. (Completed 19 January 2013)
2. Venture to the Isle of Skye. (Completed 26 April 2013)
4. Visit Loch Lomond with the song of the same name stuck in my head.
6. Go to smaller Scottish town/city (like Perth) and take a quiet day outside the city.
Naturally, there are lots of other sites i’d dream of seeing – Loch Ness, for example. But in the interest of making this a list of things that are most likely to happen, i’ve confined it to these six things. Here’s to making them happen!
Friends who know Scotland: anything else that should be on this list? What’s your favorite place/thing to do in this country?
