A Florida Update

What up guys!

Hey so I'm still down in Florida chillin right now and its pretty nice. This is one of the first chances I've had to write well I was down here so I just though I would let you know I'm still alive. I've had nothing but warm weather and I'll let you guys know more about what was going on when I was down here later but I'm going to bed so peace out guys

Well whats going on guys. Hope all is well on your end of the spectrum. Well just to give you a slight up date I'm headed down to sunny Florida this morning. I'm leaving the rapidly cooling New England climate to get down to the nice warm shores of Florida.

It seems like every winter break I have made the journey down to Florida. The main reason I go down there is to see my Grandparents on my fathers side and see how things are going down there, and spend some time with other family that's down in that neck of the woods.

But yeah I'm sitting here writing this in Logan Airport in front of some burrito stand and behind a Dunkin Donuts, and traveling even now which is months away from going to England is just getting me even more pumped to go and see what its like. But to be honest I just like the fact that I'm traveling and having the opportunity to travel today is great.

I do like to fly though. I've flown from Boston, and Manchester its been to many times to count. I've flown all over the country, the longest being to Washington State to Seattle. Although I was only there for about four days tis was a great time and got to spend time with my father before he shipped off to Iraq for his second tour which was great. That trip caused me to fall in love with the Seattle area, and why I choose to support the Seattle Sounders in the MLS, but I'll get into that later. But the people you will see flying is something special you will see people from all walks of life, different economic backgrounds, and with different reasons to fly.

So yeah I have another I think two and half hours till my flight so yeah I'm going to search around for something to do instead of sitting in front of burrito stand so you guys have a great day and I'll be writing again soon.

The Beginning of a Journey

Hey everyone, my name it Tucker Moss and if you are reading this your about to embark on an awesome adventure with me. I hopefully will, and by hopefully I mean that I will be studying at Plymouth University in Plymouth, England for my junior year of my undergraduate degree.

Plymouth is a relatively large city of 250,000 people, and it is on the southern coast of England in Devon county. Its about 190 miles away from London, which is about a three hour train ride from what I have been told. Plymouth University has about 26,000-28,000 students and is the tenth largest University in England.

Well I'm writing this I'm new to two things the first writing a blog. To who ever is reading this I want you to understand this blog will cover the events leading up, during and shortly after my trip abroad. I want you to see what my journey is like through my eye's and what the college experience in another country is like. I might not post everyday, but don't think I've forgotten about this I want you the reader to enjoy reading this as much as I am enjoying this trip of a lifetime.

Now the second thing that I am new to is well going abroad. I have lived in the United States for nineteen almost twenty years and I have never once leave the boundaries this country. (Well once I went into international waters, but lets be honest with each other that really doesn't count.) This trip with be the first time I have ever left the country. I'm pumped to see what the rest of the world has to offer me and my first stop is studying in Plymouth. 

So since I have never left the country and before I can really go and start the process of getting a visa and applying to Plymouth University to become an exchange student from Plymouth State University I kinda had to get a passport. Honestly in retrospect there wasn't an heartburn over it being difficult or anything like that I was for the most part just the sticker shock I had on the price of a first time passport, but I looked at it this way as it was pay itself off with one stamp when I land at Heathrow.

Its just I found it quite funny when I gave the gentleman that was doing passports all of my information and paid I got this feeling that "wow this is really happening!" I started to think that I am a bit nervous, but I quickly got over that feeling thinking that there is going to be so much to do that I wont have time to get nervous at all.

So I will keep posting to let you know how its going with the process of getting over there and of some things that I'm really looking forward to be doing, or seeing when I'm in plymouth but I hope you'll enjoy reading this as much as I will be doing it.
