9 hours to go...
I literally cannot wait for the Sheffield study tour to commence. To conduct research and field work in an overseas city with the University is an amazing opportunity and one I couldn't possibly pass up.
I'm a bit fearful of the plane trip as its been almost ten years since I've been on one - but I've been assured that Emirates are one of the safest airlines in the world, so I'm sure everything will be fine.
Looking forward to meeting Sheffield students - just to live and study at another University for two weeks will be exciting and a great experience I'm sure I won't forget.
Also looking forward to visiting and staying in Dubai and comparing the old and new parts of the city.
As for the field trips around England - since I'm an English student, Chatsworth House and the Bronte Sisters Parsonage is a real treat.
One of the main difficulties will be fitting everything in!
More to come..
