In 2006 I studied English Language and British Culture at the University of Bedfordshire summer school in England. This was my first true experience abroad (holidays not included). If my teacher wasn’t so persistent about me urging to go there, I would have never ended up in England. 

As part of the British culture program we visited Windsor Castle (summer residence of the Queen), Stratford Upon Avon (where Shakespeare lived) and Oxford (yep, the famous university). Also I visited London several times. Long story short, I had a great time in the UK.
