More Than Just Haggis
The first words out of every person’s mouth after I told them I’d be spending the semester in Scotland was “Are you going to eat haggis?”. I never really knew what to say because sure, I’m up for trying new foods, but also there’s more to this nation than a strange meat concoction.
Sometimes in America we forget to relax and enjoy our food, constantly taking coffee to go and eating a boring granola bar at our desk. Scotland (and the rest of Europe) understands the importance of taking a little time out of your day to appreciate a flavorful cappuccino with a fun design and a fresh baked chocolate croissant. I think we can all learn a little from slowing down and appreciating the little things in life.
