London Wrap Up

Well, it came and went so quickly. Three months just did not feel like enough time in London. If I could stay for longer I would in a heartbeat, but the Drexel quarter system is waiting for me to come back and do spring term. Studying abroad in London had its ups and downs like ...

Day Trip to Brighton

Although traveling to different countries is always exciting, England has so many places to offer that are only a train ride away. This week I ventured on the hour long journey to Brighton!

Camden Market
