Hello and thanks! Eating out was fine as long as I made sure to get the waiter/waitress to double-check with the chef that there wasn’t going to be any eggs in my meal. It’s basically the same as anywhere else, really. Cheers! x
At the beginning of the month, I made the long trip over to Hong Kong for my maternal grandpa’s funeral. The trip was a quick one and I was sick the entire time because of a nasty cold bug I caught the weekend prior to leaving. If I remember correctly, this was my eight trip to Hong Kong but it was the first trip where I’ve had to stay in a hotel, which was an interesting change. What was great about this trip was to see relatives from my mother’s side all in one place, even if it was under these circumstances.
Anyway, here are some pictures…
Until next time! x
If you follow me on Twitter or if you follow my main Tumblr, you’ll know that I went to Italy last month. And before your start becoming jealous of me, I wasn’t there for fun as I was there as “nanny,” so to speak. My cousin and her husband invited me to join them on their family vacation but I would be there to take care of their children aged 2, 4, and 9. Safe to say, it was an exhausting two weeks in Tuscany…
Apart from chasing after the younger children and wiping bums, here are some pictures of things that I got to see during my travels to and from Italy, as well as in and around the Tuscan countryside.
Just wanted to do a quick update. Yes, I’m still alive. This blog will remain here so that I can always look back and remember my time abroad. If any of you have questions about studying at Leeds Uni or travelling in Europe, feel free to ask. You can ask me through this blog or my main blog and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
And so ends my posts about my semester abroad in the beautiful city of Leeds…
It’s been nearly 2 months since my return back to Vancouver and I’m no longer in the I can’t believe I was just studying in England stage. Right now, I’m in more of a TAKE ME BACK TO ENGLAND AND EUROPE/I WANT TO BE BACK IN ENGLAND type of stage. IIt’s that dreaded exchange withdrawal period that every exchange student goes through and I’ve been stuck in it the moment I stepped foot back onto Canadian soil. Every single day, I stumble upon reminders of England and Europe, from friends who are still studying abroad or tweets about certain things happening in Europe. It probably doesn’t help that I’m taking a semester off because I returned a month into the semester… And if you ask my parents, they’re probably sick of me talking in my appalling London accent all the time. It was my way of trying to get them to send me back to London but it didn’t really work. But anyhow, I’m coping with my withdrawals and trying not to constantly dwell on the fact that I’m no longer in Europe.
For those considering going on exchange or even on exchange at Leeds Uni, I’ve uploaded my exchange report here. The report is something that my university requested all returning exchange students to complete for future exchange students so I thought it would be good for my readers to have access to as well. I know quite a few people have had questions regarding accommodation, travel and such, so I hope that I was able to answer a few questions in my report.
I really do hope that you all have enjoyed reading about my experience on exchange and maybe it’ll convince you to take a chance and apply for an exchange too!
