A few weeks ago, Guy and I went for a week up at Crieff Hydro in Scotland. It’s about an 8 hour drive, which isn’t terrible, but it can be a bit much for one stretch. On the way back, since we left Crieff later in the day, we needed…

London is home to some amazing markets, but there is no better place to stuff your face with homemade deliciousness than Borough Market. Borough Market is open from Monday to Saturday, with limited stalls on a Monday and a Tuesday. It gets absolutely packed on a Friday and Saturday, and…
one day in Oxford
Oh, Oxford. The city where much of Harry Potter was filmed, the home of the oldest university in the world, and one of my favorite places to spend time. Over the years, I’ve spent up to five days here at one time, but if you only have one day in…

Besides picking a program, the hardest part about studying abroad in London is deciding when to come. Of course, I’m an overachiever so I studied abroad in London all four seasons so you didn’t have to. The good news is that they’re all good times, obviously. But here’s how ‘the…
Things to Do in Crieff 12
After a really poor showing of sunshine this summer, London’s forecast for the next few weeks actually has more sun than clouds. FINALLY! I spend all year hear either waiting for or missing the summer, so if London didn’t shape up soon we were going to have to have some…
London fall packing list
London’s geographical heartbeat, the River Thames, cuts right through the center of the city to provide distinct “north” and “south” boundaries. While many popular London attractions are north of the river, South London is a treasure trove for beautiful architecture, residential neighborhoods, and fabulous places to eat and shop. Hey,…
