Craig's Experience in Wales A personal documentation of my journey as an exchange student in Great Britain

And so it ends

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 5 Jun 2007 | Views [857]

As I write this I am at a Subway in Bristol, England. I just got back earlier this morning from the first round of my travels in England and Scotland. I spent a few days in Kettering, England with my good buddy Jamie Hurd and then went off to Lodon for ... Read more >

It's the people

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 24 May 2007 | Views [941]

“Yes,” I tell my friends, “I will be back to Swansea. One day.” This journey, full of boundless blessing and memory, is now near its completion. I have likened this stage of my experience to the last .1 of a 3.1 mile cross country race… I’m about to finish ... Read more >

I love Wales, I love travel

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 15 May 2007 | Views [1280] | Comments [4]

Whew, it has been way too long since I last wrote an entry. In my entry before the rugby one I mentioned how I would continue to write about my Austria trip. Well… I’m not going to do that. Due to various distractions such as paper writing, hanging out ... Read more >

Rugby at its finest

Tonight I saw my very first rugby game. It was an absolute blast watching Swansea University take on our rival Cardiff University at Cardiff's stadium. For all of you Americans reading this, I'll paint a wee bit of a picture for you. This match is like ... Read more >

As I sit here and write this now, I am not sure if it is 5:50 in the morning or at night. When I told people what I was doing for my month break, they informed me that my body was going to be confused beyond belief. I didn’t believe them nor did I pay ... Read more >

In a postcard

SWITZERLAND | Saturday, 14 Apr 2007 | Views [843]

As of this moment I am in Lausanne, Switzerland. Tomorrow that will change, though, as I head back to Innsbruck, Austria to spend some more time in my favorite place thus far. Boy, where do I start right now... looks like I have 15 minutes left on this ... Read more >

At the airport!

I feel a bit like that little guy in the photo accompanying this entry. But unlike the koala who sleeps 20 hurs and plays 4, I am about to use all my energy in seeing Austria and Switzerland.  The fun begins shortly as I board my RYANAIR flight 306 plane ... Read more >

I haven't been able to put together an "Aussie Entry" due to a bit of uncharacteristic proctastination and having to get things together for my Austria and Switzerland trip. I leave for that area of Europe this morning as my coach leaves Swansea at 6:... Read more >

About how long does it take one to get from Newcastle, Australia to Swansea, Wales? If your guess is in the 35 hour range than you're about right. This afternoon at noon I finally got back to my flat in the Student Village. I take in a deep breath as ... Read more >

It’s hard to believe that by the end of the week I’ll be in Australia. The fact that I’m going to Australia, Austria, and Switzerland really hasn’t sunk in quite yet. In reality, I don’t think it will hit me that I’m doing all this until I get to London ... Read more >

Pieces of a puzzle

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 8 Mar 2007 | Views [1032] | Comments [4]

Being here in Wales is about as surreal an experience as I have ever had in my life. Granted, I am only 20 years old and God willing I have much more of life to experience. It seems to periodically hit me at random times that I am actually IN Wales. This ... Read more >
