British Isles Field School


Well... the main point of this blog is to document the stories and all of the fun encounters of my Study Abroad trip this summer. I will be taking a trip to the British Isles (England, Ireland, and Scotland) in July with the Geography Department at UNT. We will be there for 3 weeks and hopefully it will be a lot of fun! While there, we will be visiting the cities of : Dartmoor, the most infamous Cork, Galway, Bangor, and Edinburgh. We will be living in University Residence Halls (which shall be interesting) and will only be in each city for about 3 days. The thing that I am ost excited about with this trip is that we will not be doing what the average tourist does. We will be driving throughout the countryside and visiting cities that are not average tourist traps. These are big cities in their own, but not ones that people flock daily to. We will be like we are citizens or long staying visitors where we will live like these people and will be able to develop an appreciation for how they live their life. That is going to be awesome!

Sweet deal dude, you're going to have a lot of fun.

Will you have any weekends for off-time? If so, I'd recommend visiting at least a few of those "touristy" sites: Stonehenge to name one.

Also, Edinburgh is actually the most touristy city in all of Scotland. I was there for a day and I found more Americans than Scots!

Anyway man, I'll keep track of your Blog. Good day to you sir!
