I’m an International Superstar!

Haha! No, not really, but it makes an eye-catching post title doesn’t it?

But I am the focus of an article about my working experience in the UK thirty many years ago.  I first wrote about my summer working in the UK during the April A to Z Blogging Challenge in my “L is for London” post. BUNAC, the sponsor of my work abroad program happened to spot it (why you should always tag your posts). They contacted me and asked if I wouldn’t mind writing a post for their blog about my experience, to help ease anxieties of those considering the program.  I said, “Of course!”, dug out some old photos and souvenirs and sent them on.

Today BUNAC emailed informing me my guest post is up AND added this extra tidbit that still has me giddy:

We’ve also been approached by The American magazine, an ex-pat magazine for Americans living here in the UK, who want to run the blog as an article. We’ve forwarded on your story and photos and I believe they’re planning to run it in the August issue.

How cool is that?

So, yes, in the post are photos of me right after I graduated from college, taking my first baby steps out into the big, scary world that wasn’t so big after all.
