“Leaving On a Jet Plane” and “Take Me Home, Country Roads”

Hi everyone,

So it is with a heavy heart that I inform you that I will be home within the week. I cannot believe I am writing this post already. I have been here for four months now and I have to say it has not been long enough. I don’t want to leave! I have fallen in love with Scotland and I don’t know how I am going to handle going home. My earlier post of my top 10 was written with tears in my eyes and now I feel comfortable telling you all that I am actually crying over my keyboard right now.

I am looking forward to going home in a very small way. For example I want to cuddle my dogs and have a cup of Chai. My friends and family are coming to visit over the summer and I know next semester will be a blast. But, I also feel like there is so much I haven’t seen and done yet and I honestly don’t know when I will be able to come back to Scotland. It is the strangest confused feeling I have ever been faced with.

My Mom will be here soon and that means the end has come. I will be taking her around Scotland as a final farewell and then I will be, as John Denver so beautifully sang, “Leaving On a Jet Plane”, then when I will be back in the US where country roads will take me home. So goodbye Scotland, I will miss you!!
