What do I want this blog to do?
Educate. Travel is knowledge, but the next best thing is reading. Before a trip, I arm myself with information. I studied abroad in England, but before leaving I spent hours looking for firsthand accounts and suggestions on what to expect, how much money to bring, where to visit, and what to pack. I want to create a space that brings all the information necessary to a traveler into one place. I give reasons as to why you should travel and use my expertise in studying in the United Kingdom to explain the process of planning and applying for a study away program, give accounts of my experiences, and provide travel tips. Whether you are interested in studying abroad, backpacking, or heading out for a vacation, I want this blog to both inform and inspire.
