My friend Marisa was another big Disney fan in my study abroad group, so the two of us got to talking and booked a last minute trip to Disneyland Paris for our final weekend in Europe! We experienced quite the hassle getting there – there was an airstrike in France and our original flight got cancelled. So we took a … More Disneyland Paris Round 2!
The tour I was talking about was a walking tour through Edinburgh based on none other than Harry Potter! J.K. Rowling was living in Edinburgh, Scotland while she was writing the books, so there is a lot of Harry Potter history in this city. We met up with our tour guides at Greyfriars Bobby and … More Harry Potter Walking Tour in Edinburgh!
For the third and final country during our Study Abroad program, we traveled to Scotland! We stayed at University of Edinburgh. It had one of the coolest campuses I’ve ever seen… mostly because there was a castle right outside of my dorm building! On June 19th, we went on – you guessed it – another bus … More Scotland
On June 12th, we went on another bus tour (which evidently turned into a theme on this study abroad program) and our first stop was the filming location of Game of Thrones!

The day after I got back from Disneyland Paris was the day we headed out of London to our next destination – Dublin, Ireland!

Dublin had a much slower pace than London, but we got to experience some really great places while we were … More Ireland: Guinness Brewery & Cliffs of Moher
June 4th was our last full day and we were up and at the park for the early extra magic hour! We went into Disneyland and met Chip and Dale first, who are known as Tic et Tc in French. Then we hopped over to the other side of Main Street and met Mickey and … More Disneyland Paris Part 2
Hello everyone! Sorry for completely falling off the map for a while… life has gotten crazy busy. I finished up my study abroad journey in Europe, moved back to Orlando, and have been piecing things together for my new life ever since. It has been wonderful! One of the pieces I have been missing, though, was … More Manchester and Cambridge!
There are a few places in London that I have always wanted to visit, so I made sure to check off as many as I could from my bucket list! On this day, I started off with one of the most important. As you may remember, on my trip to San Francisco, I made sure … More Visiting Harrods!
This morning we were up bright and early for our tour of Windsor Castle, Bath, and Stonehenge! A group of us booked this tour with Premium Tours and had one of the most wonderful and memorable days of our program! The tour started at Windsor Castle which had such extravagant architecture. It was amazing to … More Windsor Castle, Bath, and Stonehenge
This morning we got to tour the Parliament which was a very special experience. It was interesting to learn about the lords, kings, and queens and see where everyone sat during debates. It’s an inexplicable feeling to be surrounded by so much history! Then I had to do one of the most important/touristy things on my … More Parliment/Sherlock Holmes/London Zoo
