So Long, London!

As I sit in the airport to head back to New Jersey, it’s hard to even know where to begin in regards to my seven weeks abroad. Of those seven weeks, six were spent studying and interning in London, while the remaining time was spent traveling in Madrid. Although I had been abroad once before,…

I have spent my six weeks in London interning in the finance department of Clic Sargent.

Flags hung from balconies, plates sold in markets, and the royal wedding was the main, if not sole, content of the Evening Standard. All of the buzz and excitement around the wedding made it even more surreal…

Arrival Survival: London Edition

I made it! Despite the storm at home, my 10 pm flight from Newark took off relatively on time with no issues or delays. The flight was a quick seven hours, three of which I spent sleeping. When we landed in London, we deplaned and took a bus to the Queen’s Terminal, where we spent…
