History and Culture Park!

I’ve been around many parts of Seoul already, and even outside of the main region since I began my studies here. However, I feel as if I haven’t done as much touristy stuff as I was hoping to do. For this reason, I finally forced some time after midterms were over! When visiting Korea, I ...

Stuck in Mykonos!

Just like a normal university back in the United States, we were given a week long Spring break here in London. With our freedom from class and extended vacation, I took the opportunity to do a bit of traveling around Europe! Early on in the quarter, we planned our Spring break trip, so we were ...

Living in Korea

Although I very much miss my parents and friends back in Philadelphia, there are 3 perks that I will miss about living in Korea and wish could be emulated back in the States. They may seem like such simple things, but I think they’re important when it comes to an ideal place to live in. ...

Shopping at Gangnam Terminal

Gangnam is known for their extremely luxurious and lavish products. International brand name stores could be found here, boasting the title of the home of the only official Apple store in South Korea. I’ve actually been told to skip out on visiting Gangnam as it just wasn’t college-student-wallet friendly. The once popularized song, “Gangnam Style” ...

You could tell midterm-week was approaching by how packed the study rooms were. Eyes were ...

Is This My Stop?

Wow! I’ve been in Korea for over 10 weeks now! Time sure flies! Reflecting on my experience so far, I realize I’ve been traveling around Seoul a lot recently. So, how do I usually get around Korea? Depending on where I want to go, I rely heavily on the subway system. If I can’t get ...

Traveling Around: Edinburgh Edition

There are endless great things about studying abroad. One of the best things about being in Europe in particular is how easy (and affordable) it is to explore and travel to other countries within the continent! We have a friend from Drexel who has been studying in Edinburgh, Scotland since January. Our first weekend experience ...

Four-day Weekend at Japan

Somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit growing up was Japan. Japanese culture made an entrance to my life early on once I discovered art and animation. It continues to influence my style in drawing and holds a near and dear part of my childhood. I figured since I was doing study abroad in Korea, and ...
