Hello America from Sunny(ish) Guildford!

Be it the literal first word or not, ‘twee’ is likely what comes to mind when most Americans picture a life in England. Whilst it’s true that this 16th century village life can (almost) be had just down the A25 at Shere or Gomshall— two lovely villages near uni— there’s far more to the UK, England, Guildford, and of course university life, and it’s this that brought me to the University of Surrey. Over the course of this blog, it will be my job (literally) to bring to light for you, the hopeful American, why this one university four thousand miles away is the destination for you as it has been for me. I do hope you enjoy as I detail the joys of passing my UK driving test, the perils of a new ‘language’, and of course the academic life that simply cannot be had anywhere else.

Ta-ra for now,
