Study Abroad Week #18: Saying Goodbye.

Are you wondering why I skipped week #17. Well, it is because at some point tomorrow, afternoon, it will have been exactly 18 weeks since I arrived in the UK. I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was on Wednesday, Feb the 03rd, around 4:30 pm that I landed at the East Midlands Aiport. I can’t believe how fast time goes by. As it is been said by many, time flies so fast when you are happy, and the more fast it flies the more it makes you sad.

Study Abroad Week #16: Trip to Belfast and the Last Exam.

Last week was hectic as usual. I started by embarking on a trip to the Nothern Ireland’s capital, Belfast. I went there on a Tuesday morning, checked in at my hostel, and then walked around the city for the rest of the day.

Other than walking aimlessly around the city centre, I also went on an hour-long tour at the Belfast City Hall. After that, I visited the Queen’s University Belfast, the Botanic Gardens, and the Ulster Museum. Continue reading “Study Abroad Week #16: Trip to Belfast and the Last Exam.”

Study Abroad Week #15: Weekend Trip to Cymru.

This past weekend, I had a chance to visit Cymru (welsh for Wales). I spent two days there, and while I was there I got the chance to visit the Snowdonia National Park, the towns of Bangor & Conwy, and the small village of Rowen which was one mile away from YHA Rowen, the hostel I was staying at.

To give you a clear idea of my adventures in Wales, this post will contain a lot of pics that I took on my journey. I use Canon Powershot (model sx520) to take almost all the pictures, and I hope you’ll enjoy them!

Study Abroad Week #14: Exam Time.

As of now, I have only one month left for my study abroad adventures. Time is going fast, and I know that because it feels like it is only been two or three days since I wrote the last post, and that was one week ago.

It is going to get even worse as starting today, I will be getting more busy as it is exam time. Out of the three modules (classes) that I am taking this semester, I will have to sit for two exams, and write one essay. Continue reading “Study Abroad Week #14: Exam Time.”

Study Abroad Week #13: Lake District National Park.

Voila! It’s been 13 weeks since I arrived in the UK. For this special occasion, I thought why not post in a form of a photo essay? Last week, I wrote an opinion text-only post as I had some time to spare, but this week I am kind of busy, so I hope that these amazing pictures, that I took using my Canon Powershot camera on my weekend trip to the Lake District‘s town of Keswick and the Catbells mountain range, will suffice.

Without further ado, here are the 10 photos that I chose for the occasion: Continue reading “Study Abroad Week #13: Lake District National Park.”
