Three long flights later, I arrived home last week.
Studying abroad has transformed my life. I experienced the beauty and diversity of Europe, and Scotland became my second home. I forged friendships with people from all around the world. And I learned the fundamental importance of embracing the unfamiliar.
I said it before, but going abroad was by no means an easy decision. A year on, I am beyond grateful for those in my life who encouraged me to seize the opportunity. I hope this blog has helped others on the fence do the same.
I will always cherish my time at St Andrews and hope I will one day have the opportunity to return to that incredible community. Until then.
