So the time has come, my exchange in Canada is now over. After finishing my exams just before Christmas, being out here has given me the opportunity to travel around a bit. I spent Christmas with a friend living in New Jersey, who I met last year when she did an exchange at Southampton. New Year’s was spent in New York City with a bunch of friends I met on exchange. My friend, Alice, who is currently doing an exchange in North Carolina, and I have just finished a road trip from New York City down to the Florida Keys. It’s been great fun, but I already miss Canada – I’m now looking into MSc Neuroscience programs at Western, McGill and U of T. Despite the maple leaf-shaped hole in my heart, I am more than excited to come home, see friends and start my final semester!
