My number 1 goal for this semester was “meet Scottish people,” and I’m not going to lie to you, it was kind of difficult at first. You don’t really get to meet people during classes, so you have to put yourself out there. That’s why you’ll hear everyone from the IFSA Scotland office stress joining clubs, or some other kind of organization, instead of just hanging out with the other international kids, which is fine too but… anyway.

(Becoming friends with older couples is A+, they adopt you as a grandchild and feed you food, highly recommend) The point of this MEET PEOPLE!!! rant is that if you make local friends, they can show you all of the things they like to do, and in return, you can take them to go explore the tourist traps of their country, because I can promise you they haven’t seen them.
