Timeline: Adventures to come


Getting to know the city
Michelle experiences what it’s like to live in Edinburgh during the world’s biggest festival


It’s time for freshers week. We meet the lecturers and students studying alongside Michelle. We’ll also be taking a trip up to the ancient town of St Andrews and perhaps a caber toss at the Braemar Highland Games.


Beautiful Scotland
Michelle will breathe in the crisp sea air on some of Scotland’s most sturdy islands. And if that wasn’t enough there’s a trip on the Harry Potter train in store.


Life at Edinburgh Napier
With Michelle’s MSc in full swing, we will spend the month in Edinburgh, learning more about her time in this great city. We are also hoping Michelle cooks us thanksgiving dinner.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year
Christmas in Scotland is full of cheers. Michelle will enjoy the Christmas markets of Edinburgh and the sights and sounds of Glasgow, our neighbouring city.


Hogmanay and Haggis

If there’s one thing Edinburgh is known for, it’s the biggest new years street party in the world: hogmanay. Michelle will enjoy another important tradition in January- a Burns Supper, with customary haggis!


Edinburgh’s best
Join Michelle, as she experiences some of Edinburgh’s best tourism attractions. Think history, heritage and the occasional ghost.


Lochs, Castles and Kelpies
A trip north is on the cards to see some of Scotland’s most beautify scenery. As well as this we’re finding time to to Michelle along to see Scotland (win) at the Six Nations Rugby
