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 Vegan Weekend in London!

With COVID restrictions lifting slowly here and there, I got the wonderful opportunity to travel to London. In a country that speaks English, I got the luxury of just requesting that my meals were vegan and not having to say “Senza latte e uovo e formagio e burro e prodotti animali per favore!!” I took ...

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 ...

Cheung Chau Island

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 ...

The Locals in London

The break time is here and classes are finally over (well, almost). This means I get to travel around as much as I want and don’t have to wake up at 7am anymore for classes. I love the flexibility which is provided to us because I feel there is a good balance between traveling and studying. ...
