Today was a bit more exhausting than yesterday, and I think the main reason for that is waking up at 6:30am when I slept at midnight the night before. Six and a half hours of sleep was not ideal; I had set an alarm for 8am. I left the house this morning around 10am, and I boarded the tube to London Bridge station to visit the Tower of London. As I walked across the London Bridge, I could see the magnificent and world-famous Tower Bridge ahead. In the middle of the bridge, the
London is an absolutely wonderful place. It has an amazing mixture of modern sharpness and rush and historic remnants. Since I fell asleep around 9:30pm the previous night, I woke up at 5:30am feeling refreshed and energized. I immediately proceeded to planning an itinerary for the day's trip. My Airbnb host Susan helped me revise and provided me with suggestions. As lively as she could be, Susan looked up ticket prices and Underground tube routes for me. (Have I already ment
I am here in London! After nine and a half sleepless (sigh) flight, I landed safely in London Heathrow at local time 11:30am, which was fifty minutes ahead of schedule. London is truly breathtaking in multiple ways; I shall elaborate on that later. Most of my friends know that I was extremely nervous about leaving the day before. I sent at least twenty Snaps to everyone every hour just to project what misfortunes I would face when I arrive. Spoilers: It wasn't bad at all! How
These few days have been a series of meetings with people to say goodbyes. As I've said in a previous post, more and more friends are leaving for greater things. I don't want to lament the fact that we get to spend less and less time together each year; I want to rejoice in the fact that we are spreading our wings, and our free trials of life are over. Also, I regret starting packing the same week as my trip!
Ahhh! It's already been a day since my last post! The day of my departure is fast approaching. Today was less eventful than what I would like it to be. I woke up at 11am this morning (my Antelope Canyon trip has really drained me out), and I had to make a list of the things I will bring to UK and another list of things I would like my parents to bring to Berkeley in August. That took waaaay longer than I thought because I was distracted by fixing my phone (I have iOS 11 since
As a college student entering Junior year, I think it is natural for me to begin spending time outside of the comfort of my home more and more. This summer, I am proud to say that I will be conducting industrial economics research at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom, and I will be leaving in exactly a week from today. Am I excited? Heck yes! This will be my first time in Europe, and I can't wait to take new photos at locations I have yet to explore. In addition to
