I’m not sure if I’ve previously said this, but for most of the year I’m a full-time student. I’m currently in my second year studying Ancient History at the University of Birmingham. For those who aren’t certain what this means exactly, Ancient History looks at the Romans, the Ancient Greeks, the Ancient Egyptians and the civilisations of Western Asia – although this year I’m beginning to specialise more on the topic of the Romans.
Now on the one hand, I could simply limit my blogging to when I go abroad (in my case this would mean outside of the UK). However, I don’t want to do this. I personally believe that you can explore your own country just the same as you would a foreign one. Every single time I visit somewhere new in this amazing country, that is me exploring another small corner of the world. And besides, some people who read my blog don’t even live in England, so for them it truly is still ‘foreign’. On top of that, I don’t like the idea of going months on end without writing anything here – which sadly could potentially happen if I only wrote about my adventures outside of England (one of the disadvantages of being a poor student). So I hope you enjoy my writings about England. I’m sure there will be quite a few posts about Birmingham, but hopefully i’ll be able to do some travelling and see some other places as well!
