Exploring Camden Market

When I’m not at Queen Mary reading away, my favorite thing to do in London is explore. Walking new streets and finding new things is pretty exhilarating to me.

Layover in Madrid

I was on a plane, Air Europa flight 92, during New Year’s Eve. At midnight, the lights were off and most passengers were asleep. This was the first time I didn’t celebrate New Year’s Eve with my family, all because of choosing a flight with a 19-hour layover in Madrid, Spain. I was going to ...

Landing in London!
