Honors Abroad

  Choosing to study abroad was easily one of the best decisions I have made in my life thus far, but I’m pretty sure you will hear that from anyone who studies abroad or visits Europe in general. So what I’d like to talk about is studying abroad with the Honors College. This summer I studied at Worscester College – that’s pronounced “wuhster” by the way – for a month with the UA in Oxford program. This program is not...

Traveling While Traveling

I have been living in Oxford for the past two weeks and each weekend I have taken an opportunity to travel to a new place. Though the UK and Europe are the ideal places to country hop and sightsee, I have found myself feeling like I’m missing out when I leave Oxford. The first weekend I jetted off to Amsterdam to visit my father, who was there for business. The next we had a class trip to Penshurst Place and Canterbury to visit...

Due to Australia’s cozy position in the Southern Hemisphere, their seasons...

Life Across the Pond

Once I stepped off the plane at London Gatwick, I felt as if I was in the middle of dream. Everything was different. The people talked funny and the signs I had to follow were different than the ones in America. Flash forward almost an entire month and I still feel as if I’m catching up to my new home for the next few months. London was great. Buildings from centuries ago and skyscrapers that are still being worked on. When I...

Pre-Departure: Alpine Living takes the land of the Kiwis

In March I will be traveling around New Zealand as a photographer for Alpine Living magazine; a publication I have dreamed of working on since the magazine was handed to me during orientation. It was after seeing this award-winning publication that I knew I made the right choice to pursue journalism at The University of Alabama. I always tell people that my dream job would be to work for a magazine like National Geographic. Unfamiliar...
