London Blog: “So Long, Farewell, Aufedersein, Goodbye!”

We woke up at 6 a.m., had our last breakfast in Stratford, then lugged our heavy suitcases downstairs to load up the bus. As we drove away from Stratford we passed mile after mile of frost covered countryside in the morning light. The entire landscape was a gradient of gray – from the pale gray sky to the dark gray silhouettes of the bare trees. Even the frost on the ground was a shimmering gray. It was beautiful and I did not want to say goodbye, but before I knew it we were at the Heathrow airport, ready to catch our plane. London and Stratford will always have a place in my heart and I know it won’t be long before I return to them. Maybe someday I’ll even move to the U.K., but for now I’m on my way back to New Jersey for my final semester at The College of New Jersey. I’ve been on an incredible journey these past two weeks and I’m sure it will take some time for me to fully realize all that I’ve seen and experienced, but right now all I feel is overwhelming happiness. I’ve met some incredible people and made some wonderful new friends and I am anxiously awaiting my next journey abroad. I hope that this is only the first of my travels and perhaps someday I will become a world traveler. So, until next time, “So Long, Farewell, Aufedersein, Goodbye!”
