Blissfully traveling and soaking up all the worlds wonders with an occasional return to the U.S. for some In-N-Out burger!

York Reflection

So here it is. My final day in the UK. As I sit here in terminal five at Heathrow Airport, I can’t shake the fact that I am actually leaving. This semester will truthfully go down as the or one of the best semesters of my college career. In middle school I talked to one ...

The Great British Tour

Ok the title may be a little misleading since I’ve only seen three places, but that’s good enough in my book! Before I left York, my floor mates opened up their homes to me for a couple day stay if I wanted to (I know I know they are great mates!). The first stop was ...

When I Look Back

When I look back at York, I will reflect on all the adventures I had, the places I had the fortune to see, and the people that will stick with me for a lifetime, but as I was writing this reflection I felt like I was leaving a huge piece of my journey behind. I’ve ...

Hampton Court

A few days before I had to depart this beautiful country, I had the luxury to visit Hampton Court. Now I know you have no idea what that is (neither did I), but it is one of Britain’s many treasures. Here’s why! Back in the good ole times of the 1500s, this man named Cardinal ...

White Cliffs of Dover

Before leaving Uni, a bunch of mates invited me to their house and offered to show me around their town. One of those mates was my friend, Esther, who lived on the floor below mine back in the dorm. She invited me to stay with her in Canterbury which is almost as south east as ...

Your Handy Dandy Guide to British Lingo

Let me just spare you the endless amounts of confused looks and “what?”s that you will endure with this handy guide to the British lingo. When I got here, I was expecting a lot more of the “posh” British accent that is portrayed whenever there is a British character in any American movie or tv ...

Weekend Trip to the Dam

So let’s just get right down to it, we all know the major appeal to study abroad don’t we? SCHOOL. Obviously, and if you say differently then you are not a goal setting, well-rounded, studious pupil… ANYWAYS the second-best reason is easily the endless travel opportunities that you have when on exchange! As you may ...

Social Scene at York

There is no doubt that the Brits enjoy a good pub. Pubs are the social hub of almost every evening and that still rains true in York, but York has way more to offer! I am writing this blog to share all the fun there is to do that do not require anything but yourself! ...

Last Days in York

You know the saying, “All good things come to an end.” Perfect way to describe the end of a study abroad. The end kind of hit me like a ton of bricks. I always knew that the horrendous day where I would have to say goodbye to my floormates was inevitable, but I am talking ...

Exchange Friends Vs. Local Friends

Like I have mentioned before, I have been on two exchange programs. One to Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the other at The University of York in York, United Kingdom. Just by their location alone, I am sure you can just imagine the vast differences between the two of the exchanges! One of the ...
