Having access to Facebook once again (via my new VPN) has re-ignited a lot of old memories, as names and faces from my distant past pop up on the screen with all their latest news. And old photos such as this one bring back a flood of nostalgic recollections. This was a story in an American newspaper where I and seven fellow students from Westminster College, Oxford, were asked to contrast our usual UK place of learning with the much larger Connecticut College where we were studying for four months on exchange [I'm far left]. Most of us had a fabulous time there, although the article does lament the lack of custard! For me, it was notably the place where I cemented my love of (solo) travelling, heading off for a 3 week trip alone around Eastern US on a shoe-string budget (hence being a registered vagrant in Florida ...free bed and breakfast! Woohoo!).
