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 ...

A trip to Helsingør

Although Denmark is a small country compared to the US, it is very rich in culture and history. Recently, I was able to make a trip to Helsingør. This is a port in Eastern Denmark and on the other side of the water is Helsingborg Sweden which is only 30 minutes away by ship. Now ...

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 ...

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 ...

Hiking Adventures in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is known for its hikes because there are very tall hills and peaks with amazing views. The two hikes I have been on while in Hong Kong are Victoria Peak and Sunset Peak. Victoria Peak is a well-known peak for tourists because it is the highest hill on Hong Kong Island. There are ...

Ocean Park Hong Kong

Ocean Park is one of the most well-known amusement parks in Hong Kong. My friends and I took the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) from our dorm halls to Ocean Park, where the trains stopped in front of the park. We decided to go on a weekday because it is very crowded, and this is a ...

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 ...
