Hi! I'm Kaylie and I am currently studying abroad at Queen Mary University of London! I'm currently a Music Industry major at Drexel University, and abroad in London to see the live music and community they have to offer. I enjoy alt rock music, skiing and lots of food!

London Wrap Up

Well, it came and went so quickly. Three months just did not feel like enough time in London. If I could stay for longer I would in a heartbeat, but the Drexel quarter system is waiting for me to come back and do spring term. Studying abroad in London had its ups and downs like ...

Day Trip to Brighton

Although traveling to different countries is always exciting, England has so many places to offer that are only a train ride away. This week I ventured on the hour long journey to Brighton! Brighton is a wonderful city right on the ocean, that even in the chilly spring days was extremely enjoyable. If you’re looking ...

Traveling Alone

Traveling alone. Something I never saw myself doing. And yet while I was away in London I decided to travel to Paris for a weekend alone. I was never against the idea, but always enjoyed the company of other people so I really didn’t think I would like traveling by myself. Boy, was I wrong. ...

Museum of the Week

This week my University was still experiencing strikes, they are now over but it meant one more week without going to a museum for class. I still managed to find one that I enjoyed and wanted to share though! London is known for its world class museums. People usually make their way to South Kensington ...

Boats and Books

Any city wouldn’t be complete without some unique spots covered in local flair. One that I was lucky enough to find this week is called Word on the Water. Now, I have talked a lot about the canal boats that line Regents Canal in this blog, as that canal is right on my campus. But ...

Museum of the Week

As the strikes are still on-going at Queen Mary this week, I did not go with my class to a museum. I did however go with a friend to the Science Museum! On a rainy day there really is nothing better than walking into a free museum. Located in the museum hub that is South ...

Exploring London Neighborhoods, Shoreditch

London is home to many different neighborhoods, each with its own unique identity. So far one of my favorite places to go, day or night is Shoreditch. Now Shoreditch is what one may call a hipster hub of some sort. Complete with coffee shops most millenials would enjoy, and old shipping containers turned into shops, ...

60 Degrees and Sunny, a Weekend Away in Malta

During my study abroad experience I’ve been lucky enough to take some of my weekends to travel around Europe. So far I’ve been able to experience a great mix of what Europe has to offer. I’ve found myself in city life in Amsterdam, in the skiing world of the French Alps and most recently the ...

Museum of the Week

Even though I did not actually have museum class this week because of the strike, I decided to go on ahead and go the museum by myself! This weeks museum was The Tate Britain. The Tate Britain is a museum dedicated to artists from England and the work they have created. The museum is set ...

Queen Mary Staff on Strike

Academically, this has been a very easy week for me, for my professors have been on strike. This strike has been a long time coming with poster hanging all over campus since I arrived in January. The professors who are striking at Queen Mary are part of the University and College Union, which called the ...
