I’ve reviewed my past study abroad programs here and here. But I’ve yet to review the University of Westminster, the university I attended for my Master’s degree in Public Relations. A few study abroad programs offer semester partnerships with the University of Westminster, so you can still come even if…

Americans have plenty of good stereotypes about the British. When we think of a British person, we usually think of someone with an amazing accent sipping tea with royalty and generally being well educated and polite. We think of top hats and tradition, the beautiful Houses of Parliament, and a…

Last year in early June, we took our first glamping trip to the Lake District. Despite a little bit (lot) of rain, we had a great time and wanted to stop in the Lake District again on our way up to Scotland this month. Because we were in the midst…

As the most popular tourist attraction in London, the London Eye is impossible to miss as you’re walking along the Thames. It was originally built in 2000 as the “Millennium Wheel,” though the Millennium is almost 20 years behind us now and it’s still slowly rotating over the river, steady…

London is a massive city that is home to people of all different backgrounds and religion, the rich and the poor, tourists and residents, Taylor Swift fans and Kanye lovers. But within that mixture are different boroughs that do have distinct identities and values. One of my favorite districts of…
