Traveling 101

The Easter holiday for the University of Manchester started two weeks ago, and this is the first day I’ve been back in the United Kingdom and able to relax! I spent the past 14 days visiting six cities across Europe with a group of American/Canadian students I met here. The trip was amazing and I […]

Scandinavia and the Baltics

This past week, I returned from my trip to Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn (Estonia). While a lot of the American students I know here were going to places like Italy and Spain, I chose these cities because, even though they may have been cold, the more time I’ve spent in Denmark, the more fascinated I’ve […]

La Senda del Poeta: A journey

I did something this weekend that I never expected to do in my life: I took a train to a city 70 km away and walked back. The event was called La Senda del Poeta, or “The Path of the Poet.”  I showed up to the Alicante train station at 9 a.m. Friday with all […]

Done with classes… already?!

As this post’s title implies, I have, in fact, finished classes since last I blogged. I’m done so early because Lancaster University has three terms instead of the typical two, and each is only ten weeks. The last term, which begins after Easter Break, is reserved for exams and submission of final papers; it’s like […]

Prague and Budapest

Prague and Budapest

I have no idea how to begin to describe my visits to Prague and Budapest. Seeing Eastern Europe’s unique culture was absolutely eye-opening. When we landed in Prague, we were immediately shocked by the complicated language and currency. We exchanged twenties in euros for thousands of Czech koruna… it took some getting used to. We […]
