Quick Background: I was born and raised in Fayetteville, AR and have never been away from my hometown longer than a week at a time. I have had plenty of adventures though. I have traveled to New York city, the Virgin Islands, New Orleans, Denver, and a few other spots. I like to think that I have had a life filled with stories and if you ever ask me I love to tell them. I don't consider myself someone who is a momma's boy or who would ever get homesick but I have never been away long enough to know. I also like to think I have an open mind and don't expect to feel much culture shock, but I am as american as they come so there will probably be some customs that I feel uncomfortable with.
Anyhow, I wouldn't normally think that I am interesting enough to post a blog about my life. I am using this as a way to update friends and family, in an efficient and economical way, to my experiences while I study abroad. I plan on leaving the states June 27th. I will be studying at Cambridge and Oxford in England for 10 days each. During this time I plan on traveling a little on the three day weekends and after my stay I will be backpacking for two additional weeks until Aug 1st. This is going to be difficult for me because I will be missing the birthday of my favorite person in the world on July 28th, Adalynn's. She will be two this year.
I plan updating this as often as possible, including the days up until I get on the plane.
God is Good! (This is my dad's signoff for my grandfather's health update blog and i think it works wonders so this is how I will sign off as well.)
Look for some video blog entries to come in the future from some awesome spots.
