I last left you all with tales of my and Harrison’s trip to Lithuania, where we spent three wonderful days exploring the country before returning to Israel.
You all know I don’t rest on my laurels for long though, as immediately after I got home from Israel my friend Carlos came for a visit. (I mean literally the next day. We suffered from jet lag together). We met in Scotland during our Arabic Programme and I haven’t gotten rid of him since.
Carlos was in the US for a total of three weeks, two of which were with me (yay!) and I made the most of it by showing him all around California.
What did this mean? Well our itinerary looked a little something like this:
Yucaipa -> Las Vegas -> Ventura -> Pismo Beach -> Monterey -> Santa Clara -> Los Angeles
While we certainly kept busy, the slow pace of our travel meant nothing felt too rushed, and we spent quite a lot of time wandering around exploring the culture (and by that I mean food. All of it. Everywhere).
Before I get deep into my Vietnam posts, I wanted to show you guys all these extra photos that I have. They span from the month or so after Cairo and before Hong Kong, during which I spent two weeks in Edinburgh and two weeks in California visiting family.

Playing catch-up now, so I’ve got some Christmas photos for you all today. I spent three weeks in California visiting the fam, so I hope you guys are ready for copious amounts of me hanging out with my goober-y family.
A late Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope everyone is having a happy holiday. I’m home right now, spending some decent time with my family before heading back to Scotland. This obviously means copious trips to Disneyland and wine, though not necessarily in that order. (Sometimes even simultaneously!)
It’s been an interesting past few weeks, with my friend Katie coming up to visit (of Australia fame), my other friend Chrissy coming to visit, (all the way from the States!), and my exams at Uni, followed by one very…sober…celebratory evening with my classmates.
And those posts are coming!
But for now I’m going to go spend some time with my family.
