Adjusting to Life Back in the States

So I can't believe my summer is over, and I'm back at Mary Washington for my final year (yes my senior year, I can't believe it either). Even thought its been a few months since I've been back, I keep thinking I'm heading back to London in next week. I miss it so much. Well clearly that's not happening, but I am very excited to be back at Mary Washington. And I have to say I have been putting off writing this post because part of me doesn't want to end this chapter of my study abroad. But after hand writing a...Read More

Bustling Canary Wharf

Hi there! So here's a little post for the week! This one is a little different because I'm adding a paper I wrote for my History class. We were tasked with a psychogeography walk. We went back to one of our favorite places that we toured throughout the semester and write a paper on our experience. We were supposed to take in our surroundings and reflect on the experience. So here it is! Canary Wharf is a beautiful area of London. Once home to one of the docks in the Port of London, it was a bustling area for trade....Read More

Stonehenge and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Hi everyone! I have to say I missed blogging! I've been in London for the past couple of weeks, I don't have any other trips planned for the rest of the semester. But I do have some other exciting things happening! In a couple of weeks my lovely friend (and future roommate!) Hannah will jump the channel from Bilbao, Spain to visit me! I went to visit her back in February, which seems like ages ago now. I wrote a post about that as well so you can go take a look at it here. Another exciting thing is my...Read More

Scenic Scotland

Hiya! So surprise! I wrote another blog post this week :) I was in Scotland this past weekend visiting the lovely Alice (go read her blog, she has some exciting trips coming up next week). Emily and Cindy also joined me on this adventure. And all I can say holy cow! It was so beautiful! This trip was a little different than my past weekend trips, I decided to leave on a Thursday rather than Friday. I only have one class on Friday so I wasn't missing too much. I took the train from London to Edinburgh, where Alice is studying. The...Read More

Mid Semester Reflection

Hello! So two weeks ago I passed that half way mark for my semester in London. But now its more like 6 weeks left until my parents finish and 8 until I come back to the States. Can you believe that! These past few months have flown by. I really want don't want it to end but I admit I am missing America. So in this post I'm just going to post a little reflection on what I've done so far and how I'm feeling now. So lets start off with few good things! I love the amount of traveling I've...Read More

Break in Barcelona

Hola! So its the mid way point in my semester! I can't even believe I'm halfway done. Its gone by way too fast. But this past week has been so much fun! It started out a little crazy because it was midterm week. I had a bunch of assignments due throughout the week that kept me pretty busy. So once I had that out of the way I was definitely ready for spring break and some sunshine. Carmen, Shannon, Cindy and I left for Barcelona on Saturday. Our flight was pretty early in the morning. It was so beautiful! We...Read More

Un Fin de Semana en Bilbao (A weekend in Bilbao)

Well it's been quite an adventurous week! I started off the week running catching up on a few assignments, including a video production trailer I made, you can watch that over here. Then it was the exciting part of my week! My friend Alice visited me from Edinburgh for a few days! It was so fun getting to show her the sights of London! I'm not gonna share too much of this part of our adventures but you can read her post over here. I was able to show her some famous landmarks of London and she was even able to...Read More

Taking A Break

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to write a quick post, to say this week I'm taking a break. I haven't done too much this week, only school work. But that's okay!!

I promise next week's post will be awesome! My friend Alice, who is studying abroad as well, is coming down from Edinburgh to visit me! She will be here for a couple of days then...Read More

See the Sea

Well I've been in London for a month now! Can you believe it? I've honestly had the best time so far, exploring bits of my new home and other places. A group of girls and I did a little more traveling down to Brighton. It was honestly really fun! We decided to do this really last minute and planned it this week. We all decided to do a day trip because we figured that we could go back another time since it is so close. I've always wanted to go down to Brighton and I thought this weekend would be perfect...Read More

Bonjour Paris!

Bonjour! So this weekend I was in Paris with my program. It was a great time! It was full of great food and sights, but the weather was not so great. It rained practically the entire time. But it was amazing nonetheless! The trip started out on Friday. After a late night trying to pack, I woke up on Friday morning to get to class. I was running late to class, but luckily that class was cancelled so I got to enjoy my morning before heading out. Back to bed! Only for a little though because we were due at...Read More
