That’s me in St. Petersburg, Russia! Man am I glad I went last summer because I would be a lot more hesitant to go now as an American to be honest.

Anyways, my name’s Jackie! I’m nineteen years old and studying abroad at the University of Edinburgh this semester. Originally I am from a small suburb outside of Chicago and go to school at Villanova University (Go Cats! We’re really good at basketball and won the 2016 National Championship). I love my school, but I wanted to see the world and what better way to do that than to study abroad?

I am an avid reader, enjoy watching various tv shows, occasionally like to knit, and I am seeking everywhere while here. This blog will be about those adventures and may be as common as a bookstore I found in Edinburgh or as extraordinary as seeing the Northern Lights in Reykjavik (I’m going this weekend and I really hope I see them).

As I discover everywhere, I’ll share it with you!
