After being accepted to all 5 of the universities I applied to in the UK, I decided that a visit to the schools would help me make my decision. I will be flying to the UK on March 16th and I am so excited. I have never left the United States before and I have always dreamed of visiting England because it has such deep roots in the type of literature I like. Visiting Shakespeare’s home country has been a dream of mine for so long and I cannot believe that in a few months time I will be walking streets that he walked. This trip is strictly to visit schools, but I hope that there will be some free time for me to explore many of the historic buildings. After my trip, I will be posting about things that I saw and experienced while in England. I feel that this trip starts a new and exciting chapter of my life and I cannot wait to share it.
