But here I am.
My application to the Brotzen Summer Travel Award was a disaster. My interviewer was unnecessarily hostile and disdainful, and it was obvious that I wasn't going to get the award within 30 seconds of the interview. But, that's behind me, and I'm quite alright with it now, because I just got the Focus Europe scholarship! Five thousand dollars! That's enough to pay for my entire trip!
Needless to say, I am extremely excited. This blog will be where I upload my travelogue as I tromp through the Isles, from Southampton to Orkney, from Belfast to Newcastle!
I have developed the proposal in a much more research-oriented project, and will soon post details. Cheerio!
