Hi! My name is Mackie Raymond, and I’m a 17-year-old senior at Myers Park High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. This blog now serves as more of an archive than an active travel blog.

In late 2012, when I was 16, I submitted an essay to the British-American Business Council in hopes of scoring a trip to England during the summer of 2013 through this awesome contest. I ended up winning! This blog was created as a place to record all of the thoughts, observations, discoveries, and more that stem from this experience. I also post a lot about British culture (or, more accurately, what I perceive to be British culture, and should thus be taken with a grain of salt).

And, for those who are interested, here’s my essay: ACS Essay

    • Kelise, thank you so much for your comment!!! Of course the trip means so much to me, but in all honesty, as an aspiring writer, the compliment touches me at a far more personal level. I so appreciate your presence on my blog, and I hope you continue to enjoy it!
