While our time in Paris had been wonderful and I will always love that city, we were ready to head back to Edinburgh for a few weeks. We needed to reconnect with old friends, some of whom were flying in from the US and elsewhere. This visit marked the end of our time in Europe (for now!), and saw the completion of our reason for being over here in the first place: Scotty was graduating!
I cannot tell you how good it was to soak up time with the people who we shared this experience with. There’s something about going through this together that bonds people together. We’ve survived, and thrived, in another culture, we’ve been pushed out of our comfort zones, we’ve discovered aspects of our personalities we never knew existed. And it’s good to be with the people who saw that happen to you and know what its like to have it happen to them.
Scotty’s parents also made the trip to see their son become a doctor – I don’t know who was prouder, his mom or me! Anyway, it was a very special day. Here’s some of the pics I snapped.
