A Bit Nervous in the Old World

“Oh, man I’m kind of nervous” were the first words I thought on the day of my flight to Bochum, Germany on April 4, 2018. How would I navigate around if I did not know the local language? How would I learn to cook if I spent my entire life being dependent on my parents, ...

Getting Around London

If you talked to any my friends back home, they will most likely tell you that public transportation is not my forte.  I’ve taken the SEPTA to get to and from clinicals, but besides that my main source of transportation in Philadelphia is Uber. That being said, you can only imagine how proud of myself ...

I Can’t Read!

4/6/2018 I was successfully able to check in all my bags and board on the planes that allowed me to arrive in Germany. I had to take two connecting flights.

4/3/2018 I remember being 10 years old and the most distance I ever traveled was for a trip to Disney World. I remember waking up early in the morning right as the sun began to peek through the clouds. I had to aid my Dad with packing all of our heavy luggage and each time ...

Making Friends at Hanyang University

Hi everyone! Seeing as this is my first blog post here in Korea, I figure I should start off with an introduction. My name is Cat and I’m a third year biology student at Drexel University. I decided to study at Hanyang University in Korea right after my fall-winter co-op and I have been here ...

Walking in Royal Footsteps

“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” – Samuel Johnson I’ve only been here for almost 2 weeks and I already feel as though I have been here for much longer. After adjusting and settling into my new home in Kensington, I have had a some time to explore the ...

London…I’m here!

I’ve made it! After enduring a winter storm that caused every flight to London to be cancelled, luckily except mine, I can finally say that I’ve made it! The journey to London would have been a lot smoother if the weather in the U.S. did not decide to act up on the one day that ...
