Study Abroad Part II: York and Edinburgh

On the York Wall

On my second weekend in England, I soaked up the rich culture of the town of York. My friend Mallori and I took a train to this historic city and enjoyed an evening walk on the city wall. We particularly enjoyed the free 2-hour walking tour, where we learned that the York wall is actually half Roman, with a Medieval wall built on top of that, and finally a Victorian renovation that allowed for a walkway around the city.

One of my favorite memories this summer was exploring Edinburgh, Scotland. We hiked to the top of Arthur’s Seat, a giant hill in the middle of the city. It was cold and rainy and completely awesome. I loved the land in Scotland. Certainly a memorable part of my trip. We also tried blood pudding and haggis, both dishes native to Scotland. I recommend trying them if you want an interesting cultural experience, but they aren’t for the weak-stomached.
