Discovering the UK- Part 1

Now that the summer break has begun and all submissions have been submitted, it is time to go on vacation! While there are so many things to do within Dundee and Scotland, as an international student howe -ver, I wanted to take the opportunity to travel to the other parts of the UK.

Seriously, it is really cool to live in an area that has over 30 castles in a 30-mile radius, quite a few which are open for us to descend upon like locusts. Less than an hour up the road from Dundee is...
