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. ...

Shopping Is My Cardio

Saturday was our final day out in London, as most students had a flight to catch the next morning to head home for the Holidays. Being that each day throughout the week was packed with exciting tours and museum visits, our professors gave us the day on Saturday to figure out what we wanted to ...

Rare Type and a Fleet of Jellyfish

On Thursday me and my peers had yet another unique chance to experience old typography, and the past ways of printing. In the morning we made our way to the St. Bride Foundation Institute, which houses some of the world’s rarest type specimens, including original samples of fonts that we know and love today. We ...

Hogwarts and Very Old Books

On Tuesday, me and my peers had the once in a lifetime chance to see some extremely old books. Courtesy of the University of Reading, we were able to view books from the 18th and 19th century. These books contained original typographic forms from these years, leading us to understand how they evolved and developed ...

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 ...

Graffiti Town

Yesterday was quite a lot of walking. I’m surprised how much stamina I have had throughout this trip. It almost feels like we have a workout everyday. I wouldn’t have it any other way though. In the morning we met up and headed out to our first tour, which was a graffiti tour of one ...

Rosetta In All Its Glory

Another day, another museum! Yesterday me and my classmates attended the British Museum, which is dedicated to human history, art and culture. There was so much to be seen in this museum it was almost overwhelming. I am truly so fascinated by the extensive amount of artifacts there were, and felt that there was much ...

Into Wonderland

Yesterday was our first full day out in London. I started the day bright and early walking around South Kensington, and eventually landed at a coffee shop called Guillam coffee house. One thing I’ve been looking forward to in London is the food. The city is full of authentic restaurants, cafes, and pubs. This may ...

Touch Down In London

Hello from London! On Friday, December 10th, I made my way to the Philadelphia International Airport for my very first study abroad program with Drexel University. I couldn’t be more excited to have a week in this beautiful city with my classmates and professors. To do a quick introduction of myself: My name is Juliana ...
