Ancora Imparo

Going abroad was one of, if not the best, experience of my life. It was challenging yet rewarding. It was terrifying yet exciting. I have grown so much as a person and learned a lot about myself through the program. I was able to meet people I never would have before, and seen things that…

The Beginning of the End

We are reaching the beginning of the end with our time here in London. Reflecting back on the semester, we all were faced with several challenges and needed to figure out ways to deal with them. In the beginning it was smaller things such as adjustment to daily life and a little bit of culture…

Different Perceptions

Last week, my family visited London, and essentially Europe for the first time. It was so nice seeing them and it gave me a really good break in the normal routine I have fallen into here. At the same time, it was clear that my parents had very different perceptions of London than I did…

Traveling: Do’s and Don’ts

So far on this trip I have traveled to 5 different countries: England, France, Italy, the Czech Republic, and Germany. Preparing for the trip may be the most fun part but it can also be the most stressful, so I’ve compiled some do’s of don’ts of preparing: Do: Plan ahead! Schedule your trips as soon…

Around the World in 9 Days

We survived Spring Break 2018! Now that we are back in London it is nice to reflect back on the 9 days of traveling around Europe. I last left off leaving Prague and headed to Berlin. Berlin was like everything I had seen before but completely different. Walking down the main streets made me feel…

Living like Lizzie

So spring break has begun! Although we can’t completely forget about our school work and class this coming Monday, we can certainly take this week to experience something outside of our daily routines. My flatmates and I began our adventures with a lovely trip to Rome! We stayed in Trastavere, a very richly cultured neighborhood…

All the Little Things

Having been in London for over a month now I am starting to realize all of the little things I thought about in the beginning as new, that I now do/ understand without thinking. Standing on the right side of the escalator when I don’t feel like walking up it: I don’t even think about…

One Month Down

I am starting to feel very comfortable and at home here. We are all falling deeply into our classes now that we have covered a lot of the introductory materials. I’m going to include a brief summary of what each class is covering at the moment/ what we’re doing. Detective Fiction: we have just finished…

Mind the Gap

It’s been about 3 weeks here so far and I’m feeling more into the routine of London life. I think the clearest I was able to see this was after my return from Paris. Going back to the beginning of last week, we had class as usual. On Thursday I spent the day exploring the…
