Graffiti Town

Yesterday was quite a lot of walking. I’m surprised how much stamina I have had throughout this trip. It almost feels like we have a workout everyday. I wouldn’t have it any other way though. In the morning we met up and headed out to our first tour, which was a graffiti tour of one ...

Rosetta In All Its Glory

Another day, another museum! Yesterday me and my classmates attended the British Museum, which is dedicated to human history, art and culture. There was so much to be seen in this museum it was almost overwhelming. I am truly so fascinated by the extensive amount of artifacts there were, and felt that there was much ...

Into Wonderland

Yesterday was our first full day out in London. I started the day bright and early walking around South Kensington, and eventually landed at a coffee shop called Guillam coffee house. One thing I’ve been looking forward to in London is the food. The city is full of authentic restaurants, cafes, and pubs. This may ...

Touch Down In London

Hello from London! On Friday, December 10th, I made my way to the Philadelphia International Airport for my very first study abroad program with Drexel University. I couldn’t be more excited to have a week in this beautiful city with my classmates and professors. To do a quick introduction of myself: My name is Juliana ...

Call me a Londoner!

York Reflection

So here it is. My final day in the UK. As I sit here in terminal five at Heathrow Airport, I can’t shake the fact that I am actually leaving. This semester will truthfully go down as the or one of the best semesters of my college career. In middle school I talked to one ...

The Great British Tour

Ok the title may be a little misleading since I’ve only seen three places, but that’s good enough in my book! Before I left York, my floor mates opened up their homes to me for a couple day stay if I wanted to (I know I know they are great mates!). The first stop was ...

Your Handy Dandy Guide to British Lingo

Let me just spare you the endless amounts of confused looks and “what?”s that you will endure with this handy guide to the British lingo. When I got here, I was expecting a lot more of the “posh” British accent that is portrayed whenever there is a British character in any American movie or tv ...

More British Countryside

If you read my blog about my previous hike, you may be asking yourself why I decided to do another hike. And you would be right. One of my floor mates has a car on campus and likes doing little excursions every now and then. One day she said to a small group of us ...

Weekend Trip to Mum’s

A couple weeks into the exchange I told one of the floormates, Niamh (pronounced like Eve but with an N), that I wanted to go home with her because she lives in an area I wanted to visit. She lives near the Yorkshire Dales which is a national park known for its rolling hills and ...
