Kirby Lonsdale student Guy Taylor is currently enjoying a year's placement at Central Connecticut State University as part of the University of Lancashire's exchange programme.

The twenty year old former student of Kirby Stephen Grammar School initially wanted to travel after completing his degree in History and American Studies but decided to combine study and travel through the exchange programme.

Guy has kept himself busy since arriving in America and so far has been to New York, Newport Rhode Island, Boston and Hartford. He will be spending Thanksgiving with one of his flatmates before heading for Montreal with some British students for 'some serious partying'. Then in December he's planning to go skiing in Vermont with his roommate.

Despite the fact he's got twice as much work to do compared to last year, with lots of reading and 'pop quizzes' , Guy is enjoying his American experience and definitely doesn't miss Preston's rainy weather.

"The weather is still good here and you can stil1 feel warm wearing shorts on some days. I admit I miss the drinking scene in Preston but I sure as hell don't miss the rain."
