Trondheim = Winter Wonder Land

go to Bergen. When we arrived in Trondheim it had just snowed and while we are the way to our hostel the snow came pouring down. So there is at least a foot of snow altogether outside.
This morning we got up at 7 and ate breakfast, and then went walking all over Trondheim. We have been back in the hostel ever since about 11 this morning after we got an adapter and some food for today and tomorrow.
Here are some pictures!!:

Oslo – the Capital of Norway

 Hello All!,

We are in Norway, which by the way is amazing! Oslo was a great city. There were lots of parks and pieces of art throughout the whole city.  Here are some pictures!!!

Highlands Weekend

Hello All,
This weekend I spent all my time in the Highlands of Scotland. Saturday I went up to Loch Ness on a bus tour. It was gorgeous, and lots of fun. The tour guide was loud and funny. He talked to us the whole time, but he knew his history.
Here are a few pictures from that day:

Then yesterday I went to the Highlands again, but went on a whiskey tour of the oldest whiskey plant in to Scotland. That was a lot of fun.  It was a shorter tour, which I was thankful for. I was tired and ready to go to sleep! Here are some more pictures from that day!

Hope you enjoy these picures!!!
I miss you all!

So many things have happened!

Hello All,

Since the last time I posted I have been clay pigeon shooting, to my first polo lesson, and to Edinburgh, Scotland.
Clay Pigeon was a lot of fin. I was the only girl other the captain for the women that had experience with a shotgun.
Polo was amazing. I learned how to wing the mallet and then I also got on a polo pony and hit the ball from a walk. The polo pony's name was Rhino. I can not wait to go back this week!
Edinburgh was a beautiful city. Rachel and I walked the whole thing. I stayed in a hostel for the first time. That was fun, but of course me being me I slept like a train through people coming in and out of the room.
Below are pictures of Edinburgh.
I hope all is well with everyone in the States. I miss you all!

St. Andrews Freshers Week

Hello All!

I am all moved in and settled. I live in Andrew Melville Hall, which is about a 30 minute (max) walk from main campus. I could live farther away, so no complaints from me.
This week I have been on a Pub Crawl, been to a Bop at the Student Union, sat through many meetings at the Divinity school and SALTIRE. Its been a busy week!!
I get some down time tonight, and lots of sleep hopefully!

I love it here at St. Andrews! The town is so great, and Rachel and I realized that we have not even explored half of the whole town yet! Definitely on our to do list though.

Today I want to Saints Sports Wednesday and learned to hit a polo ball. They had a wooden horse that had a saddle on it, so I sat on the horse and the guy taught me the two types of swings! It was so cool! I can not wait to actually get on a horse! I am so animal deprived.

Also here at St. Andrews there are BUNNIES! That is right BUNNIES! The campus out my way is littered with rabbit dens, and at dusk/night they come out. I see at least one hundred bunnies everyday walking back and forth to town and such,

Well anyways. I am ready for classes. I am matriculated, so I am taking three classes. That is a full load here. They are all three Divinity classes. I am very eager to start learning!
Anyways more later. I hope all is well. I miss you all!

Finally St. Andrews!

Hello All,
We have arrived at St. Andrews. We are about to go and walk about the town. My dorm is far away, so I will catching a taxi to move in tomorrow. Lugging all the heavy stuff across town does not seem like a good option, since their sidewalks are not wide at all.
Its going to be a lot different than London, and I love London. So we will be seeing how this goes.

The Louvre

Hello All,
 I just went to the Louvre for the first time and it was gorgeous! All the paintings were fantastic and I took lots of pictures!
I went by myself, and enjoyed the quiet. I was there in line at 8:45, and the museum opened at 9am. I did not have to speak to a soul! It was nice that all the museum attendants spoke English though.
Well... I am sitting in the room and Barbara left to go get postcards.
That is all I know for now. I am working on uploading pictures on Facebook!

We are in Paris, and I have taken some time out to go down to the lobby and post.
Paris is beautiful! We are going out to walk around soon, and hopefully find something to eat!
I think London stole my heart though.
Hope all is well with everyone!

Day #2 in London.

Hello All!
Today we got up, and I throughly resisted the whole way through waking up. But I got up anyways.
We had breakfast. There was blood pudding there, and I am so sorry; I did not partake. Looking at it was good enough for me!
We then went out and got tickets for a play, and then got phones! So I have an official British phone. I have yet to figure out what my phone number is, or how that works here.
The play we saw was "Love Never Dies" by St. Andrew Lloyd Weber. It is the sequel to Phantom of the Opera. It was so good, and of course it made me cry.
We saw St. Paul's Cathedral. It was gorgeous!
Now we are back in the room. I am going to go scavenge for some food.
Tomorrow we get on the Chunnel to Paris! I know no French, and I find now that I think in a British accent. This WILL be interesting.
Hope all is well back in the States. I miss you all terribly!
More pictures soon!

I have been to the Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Gallery, and Westminster Abbey today! They were all beautiful!
It is about dinner time here, so I will go take care of that sometime. As always I would love to go to bed.
Hope everyone is well in the States.
I love it here in London. It is such a great city!
