I left the States on the 21st of August and am getting my feet under me here in bonny Scotland. For the next four years – pending any other life changes – I will be living in Dundee and going to school. Yup! I’m a student once more. Not only am I a student, I’m a “mature student” (read: old) lol.
I’m looking forward to this adventure, and am even more excited about it given I’ll be making many adventures around the British Isles with The Gent. Yup, I apparently had to move 4,000 miles to meet a boy that gets me all mushy and puts a stupid shit-grin on my face – but I’m not complaining 🙂
Anywho, given that whole feet-finding aspect, my latest adventures have mostly been in trying to decipher what a good deal is on sundry items (that whole USD to GBP math), what stores should be visited and which should be avoided, and where to get good food as a celiac (er… coeliac). Oh, and I’ve been a complete and total tourist in my new city!
I’ve visited: Dundee Law (a good little urban hike!), HMS Frigate Unicorn, RRS Discovery, found some of the Oor Wullie’s on the Bucket Trail, The Howff, Broughty Ferry Castle, and Broughty Ferry (the town). Tons of fun, though I am admittedly looking forward to my first trip in the the Cairngorms!
