Welcome to my travel blog!

I’m moving to Scotland (again) this fall to study Publishing at Edinburgh Napier University. I’ll be using this blog to chronicle my adventure abroad. I’ll also be creating and sharing content with you (such as articles, top 10 lists, etc.)  about travel, publishing and anything else that catches my interest.

I semi-regularly updated a Tumblr account called FromSanDiegotoScotland when I studied abroad during my junior year of college. Now that I’m returning to Scotland, I decided to create a new, fancier site using WordPress.

I’m challenging myself to regularly update the blog so that:

  1. I can stay connected to my family/friends and let them know what  I’m up to across the pond.
  2. I can record my memories and keep from forgetting all the experiences I have while living in Scotland, studying at Edinburgh Napier and traveling around Europe.
  3. I can build my portfolio of writing and media samples, stretching my creative writing muscles, since this is the kind of stuff I want to do for a living.

I  hope what you see on this blog will inspire you to have adventures of your own. Whether it’s visiting a new park, eating at a restaurant we’ve always wanted to try or booking a plane ticket to a country across the ocean, there are all sorts of adventures waiting for us on this big, blue planet. I’d like to have as many of them as possible. 

Thanks for checking out “No Place Like Somewhere New.”
