As I'm sure you've noticed by now, I'm a big fan of day trips because you can see quite a bit packed into one day and you're back in time for supper. Somehow we've come to the end of my traipsing across southern England, because it's officially the end of my exchange! I had time… Continue reading A Day in Windsor and a Royal Wedding
We've been having gorgeous weather in England this last little while, so I'm trying to make the most of it before heading back to Canada and into working indoors for the summer. One of the things still on my list was Blenheim Palace, so the other day I took a break from studying and spent… Continue reading A Day at Blenheim Palace
I'm back with another spring-y post today! I know I missed last week, but I have a good reason - I was spending some time with my dad and brother who had come all the way from Canada to visit me. I'm convinced they brought the summer weather with them, because a couple of days… Continue reading Spring Day Trips
I finally got back up to Scotland! This time around I had a wonderful weekend with UK Study Tours in Edinburgh and the highlands. I loved everything, but could definitely spend weeks exploring the gorgeous highlands! After an overnight coach ride, we arrived in the Scottish capital and immediately started on a morning walking tour.… Continue reading A Weekend in Edinburgh

I made the multiple train and bus journey to my idea of heaven, Hay-on-Wye (also know as the Independent Kingdom of Hay), a bookworm's paradise!… Continue reading A Day in Hay-on-Wye
As any self-respecting bookworm will say, I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter universe - books, movies, characters, settings, magical-ness, everything! I was understandably rather excited to see Oxford on the list of cities with partner universities that I could choose from for my exchange, because there are loads of places that appear in… Continue reading I’m in Harry Potter heaven!
I actually stayed in the UK this past weekend, and went on a rainy day trip to Cambridge! A walking tour through town, a couple of hours at the Fitzwilliam Museum, and a walk along the River Cam behind King's College made for a lovely day out. I heard some people say that Cambridge is… Continue reading A Day in Cambridge
