Sorry for the lack of posting. The past three weeks have been pretty crazy between the end of classes, packing up/stressing about getting my French visa in time, and finally arriving in Paris and getting my bearings. Of course I got my visa at the very last minute. It definitely brought back memories of last August trying to get my UK visa in a similarly short period of time.
(Also internet is sketchy/expensive *whimper*)
It’s been a nice couple of weeks hanging out with my parents and doing various touristy things in between other more serious matters like finding a place to live for the summer and reporting to the police here as per my visa requires. So far things are coming together and I start my first day of work tomorrow. No idea what that’s going to be like. It will be nice to have a regular schedule again though.
I did some cool stuff with my parents in Glasgow in the few days we were there. We went and saw Edinburgh castle which was fun however I found it very similar to Stirling castle. If I had to choose I’d recommend Stirling over Edinburgh since is was much less crowded and had the same great facilities.
This sign was down the street from my residence and I hadn’t noticed it until nearly my last day in glasgow.
I had forgotten that John A. Macdonald was Scottish!
