It’s hard to believe that I’ve already completed one month of my summer placement in the U.K.! The four months between when I was awarded this placement and arriving in England were a whirlwind between finishing school, getting everything in place for my travel, and finally finding out where I would be working and living […]

The June Blog Hello readers, welcome to my blog!  It seems that the first month of my Prince of Wales Forest Leadership Award internship has come and gone, meaning it’s already time for my first monthly blog post.  As such, I’ve decided to use this space to briefly introduce myself, and to give a bit […]

So big that it would cover most of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and my home county Suffolk (Figure 1) if only we could commandeer it from the Canadians. The park is 763,555 ha which […]

Welcome to the Jungle! I landed in Port Hardy, north Vancouver Island on Wednesday 14th June. Dave Johnes; a former Prince of Wales award winner and fellow University of Cumbria graduate, was there to pick me up and take me to Strategic’s head office in Port McNeill.

     The five months between when I found out and the start of my internship went by really quickly – still in study mode, and field course mode, I barely had any time to prepare. My visa and driver’s license situation were sorted out already due to the special nature of my heritage. So […]

     I have finally completed my first month of the work-exchange at AT Coombes Associates in Norwich UK, which was provided generously through the Prince of Wales Leadership Award. Even though there were many steps to get to this part of this exchange, everything went relatively smoothly. My application for a UK visa was […]
