Hi everyone,

Well we made it back to Glasgow. We had quite the long weekend...Alan got here Thursday morning and Thursday night we went out for supper for Ben's birthday. (He's getting so old, haha) Friday night we took the bus down to London and then from there took a bus to Oxford. We loved it. Oxford was beautiful. Gabi & Hermes showed us around the city and then we enjoyed a quiet evening at their apartment. Sunday morning we got up early and met the bus and took it back to London, Gabi came with us. It was so much fun, London is amazing, Ben & I would love to live there haha, too bad its so expensive and so far away. There were so many beautiful parks there. We saw Buckingham palace, Big Ben ( we took a picture of Big Ben & "Little Ben"), London Bridge, Tower Bridge, and went to the London Zoo but it was closing. It was a really neat city.

Sunday night, Gabi took the bus back and we waited in the bus station for about 6 hours until our bus left. That was almost as entertaining though. A beggar asked me for a bisquit, I had just opened them and he got my first one. That was our amusement for the night, watching him walk around and scope out for food. We arrived back in Glasgow around 7:45 am Monday morning, exhausted. We didn't do much Monday.

George Square was lit Sunday night, so we walked down and had supper at the Wetherspoons near there to look at the lights last night. They're so pretty, I can't wait until the ice rink opens this weekend.

Alan is leaving early in the morning, its been really nice having him here, & actually seeing someone "familiar" :)

Things are going alright, Ben & I are getting to the point where we're ready to come home I believe. I think Thursday is going to be tough for us, but there's only 3 more weeks until we come home. We're really excited. We love it here, but we miss everyone.

Since we will not be around to say what we are thankful for this year in person, here is what we are thankful for....

Ben: I am thankful for all my friends and family and the opportunity to have this amazing experience.

Holly: I am thankful for all of my family & friends. I am also thankful for this experience abroad, we will remember this always.

We hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. We will really be missing you. && of course all the great food :) We are so thankful to have such caring friends and family. You have all really helped us get through this time away. We love you all very much. And can't wait to see you when we get home.

xoxo Holly & Ben
