The 'honeymoon stage' are the first initial thoughts of living in another country traveling: interesting food, places, and thrills... Then the challenging factors start weighing in: speaking a foreign language, budgeting, leaving your boyfriend for 5 months etc... and...

To define this past weekend in one word?

 

Spontaneous.

 

No plan. Just raw adventure.

 

 

 DAY 1

 

When you're going to one of the most scenic countries in the world, there's only one way to do it, and that's by car! My Dutch friend, Lizette, offered to drive her car (Panda)...

I just returned this past week from a grand adventure across 8 countries over the course of 25 days... and I have no words. I've seriously been contemplating this post all week on where to even begin, but I can tell you that I'm already planning my next trips (and yes...

Since I got to the UK I've been sure to take advantage of each weekend and travel as much as possible! Two weekends ago I spent three days in London, last week Manchester, and this Saturday we're headed to York. It's surprising how much the cities differentiate from o...

It's sad to say the most intimidating part of studying abroad was the thought of having to cook edible food for 5 months. I'm proud to say that I've been cooking each week and have not burned anything- yet! For the past month that I've been in Newcastle, I've been coll...

Moving to a different country for 5 months is not the easiest transition, but having a space to come home to after a long day makes a tremendous difference. I made my home away from home for only 13£ (that's about $18). 

 

As many of you may know, decorating is like ther...

It has been a bit since I last wrote. I have so much to tell and don't quite know where to begin. Let me start with this:

 

I'm in England. I'm now in my second day of classes at Northumbria University and the campus is incredible. It's surreal that I'm here and fin...

Brace yourself because the dreaded word is coming...

 

Packing. 

 

When I decided I was going to study abroad in England I knew I would be faced with a triple threat challenge: packing light for cold weather for 6 months. I knew this would be tough because I need heavier j...

When choosing where to study abroad there are dozens of places, and lets face it, they all look amazing. So how do you choose where in the world you want to go? Choosing 'Where In The World' you want to study comes down to (practically) three factors:
