For those of you who may not be aware: in the middle of September I will be beginning my senior year of college. But not at Shenandoah. Madsen, and myself will be spending four months in Winchester, United Kingdom (go figure), attending the University of Winchester.
This was a decision we made in the fall semester of our Junior year, and we took off and ran with it ever since speaking it into existence. With this trips comes a great deal of research, preparation, and excitement. August is knocking on our front door, and we still have a grave deal of prep to do.
With that being said I will be taking a brief hiatus away from the blog to get ready for the trip coming up. Do not be too sad, I will still be posting photos in the Photo of the Day section from the mini trips we have planned prior to our shipment date, as well as my portfolio.
While we are in the United Kingdom, I am planning on having a weekly scheduled blog post giving personal insights, and updates on the trip. The Welcome to the Trap vlog series will be re-implemented as well to give you all some visual insights on a day in the life of two American college students, with different backgrounds, in a environment completely foreign to us.
The excitement is slowly creeping up, but the preparation is not complete. We want to bring you all the best content we can possibly produce during the months we are away. Until then, it is back to grinding until it is time for us to hop on the plane to Winchester.
