Until Next Time, My Love xx

Before September 2019, I had no plans of ever studying abroad during my time at Drexel. I enjoyed living in my bubble of comfort and taking minimal risks. But more importantly, I genuinely didn’t believe I had the bravery or courage to leave behind everything I knew to “start a new life” for a term. ...

The Grass Really Is Greener on the Other Side

One of the main perks of choosing the University of Bristol is the city’s immediate access to multiple transport and travel options. I’ve been able to travel by bus and train to other countries within the UK with ease to see everything each city has to offer. Several weeks ago, I took my first international ...

My Many Adventures in Bristol

One of the teacher’s unions at the University of Bristol was on strike last week and most of my classes were canceled, so I decided to use that time to explore parts of Bristol and just get lost in the city. I didn’t have much of a game plan for each morning, but the campus ...

A Stone Cold Day

With my study abroad term quickly coming to an end, I’ve made up a list of places I wanted to re-visit in England. Since Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated in England, many cities started setting up their Christmas decorations and displays in mid-November. My flatmates helped me go through the towns I had visited since September and ...

Walking Amongst the Oxonian Greats

Out of all the towns I’ve visited in England, my day trip to Oxford last weekend was definitely the most “quintessentially English”. I always imagined the prestigious university to be filled with archaic buildings, freshly manicured gardens, libraries filled with every book possible, and ancient history bursting from every street corner. Thanks to an amazing ...

A Scotland Reunion

When I found out that two of my closest friends at Drexel would be studying abroad in both Scotland and Spain at the same time I would be abroad in England, I was beyond ecstatic! The last time we were on campus together was pre-COVID, so spending a few days in Edinburgh last week with ...

Traveling Through Bristol and Beyond

When I first began to research the different study abroad programs Drexel offered, I quickly realized that I wanted to attend a university located in a major city just like Philly. Traveling and sightseeing the country I’d be living in was also a goal I wanted to accomplish while abroad. That’s how I picked the ...

A Drexel Dragon Visits the Cardiff Dragon

Last Wednesday night I realized I hadn’t planned anything for the weekend and spontaneously decided to book a train ticket to Cardiff for Saturday. Cardiff is the capitol city of Wales, located in the Southern Coast of the country, and is only 45 minutes from Bristol. Like the rest of western England, a storm was ...

A Brilliant and Beautiful Day in Bath

I looked forward to visiting Bath the most while in England. It’s a city known for it’s crescent rows of flats, stone buildings, and of course, the Roman-built baths. The city was just a quick bus ride from Bristol, and I did some research the night before on what I wanted to see. As soon ...

Bristol Tips and Tricks

Now that I’ve been at the University of Bristol for a full month, I’ve had plenty of time to settle in and find my way around. I’d like to share tips and tricks for those who want to study abroad in Bristol, those who were recently accepted, or for anyone who wants to read about ...
