My first stop in Europe was St Andrews, Scotland. I arrived there by bus from the Glasgow airport. This is a beautiful university town where one of my best friends is going to school. My first day here was cloudy but not too cold. The best way to beat jet-lag is to get outside so as soon as I arrived we went for a walk to a beach near Lindsey’s house called Castle Sands, named for the ruins of an old castle that sits on a hill above it. It looks out onto the North Sea. We then continued on to the pier which we walked out on. Later that evening we went to a cute little pub called St Andrews Brewing Company for a cyder. It was an amazing first day! As always, click through the photos to learn more about them!
