Almost Touched the Clouds

This week’s blog is from WatchHouse Cafe at Convent Garden. Cafes will always be my favorite spot to work from at London because there are so many work friendly cafes around London that it motivates me to get my work done. Right now, I am sitting in front of this huge window which overlooks the ...

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 ...

Milan: Philly?

This past weekend my roommates Lydia, Erin, Ruby, and I were in Milan. As soon as we left the train station, we were all caught off guard by how similar it was to cities in the United States. The buildings were a lot taller, there were much less cobblestones, there were distinct neighborhoods that all ...

Applying to Co-Ops While Abroad

I am a sophomore entrepreneurship major in the 5 year, 3 coop program. My first coop is in Spring and Summer of 2022. The coop job search process is divided into 3 rounds, A, B, and C. A round coop job listings were open the weekend of Halloween. I only had from October 29th to ...

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 ...

It’s So Close 

As I was sitting at Bafarat Cafe at Soho last day and getting my work done, I got a text from my sister asking me to look into flights for going back home. It’s at that point that hit me that I am here for only two more weeks. All these days I kept on ...

Under the Tuscan Sun

I spent the weekend in Tuscany. We were primarily planning a trip to Florence but I ended up finding a gorgeous Airbnb about 45 minutes outside of Florence that is in a 12th century castle. It was beautiful inside and out and was a great atmosphere to spend Halloween in. Every direction you looked, there ...

Not Enough Time

It feels like just last week that I had nearly 4 months to spend in Italy and do everything I wanted to do. The time went by so quickly. I now have less than 40 days left here and there is so much that I still want to do. I have more trips planned that ...

Halloween in Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s Halloween celebration is quite big and eventful for the locals. This past Halloween weekend was the most I have seen the streets become crowded. After speaking with most of my local friends, I learned that people do not trick or treat here. Locals do not trick or treat because the city is densely ...

Weekend in Venice

I remember hearing about how Venice was sinking due to rising sea levels when I was about 11 and I said to my friends that I wanted to go to Venice before it was impossible to visit, but I didn’t know when that would be. A lot of times we make big plans for things ...
