…to follow along with my new ADVENTURES!
If you haven’t noticed, I created a new blog for my current trip to Cairo. Check it out!
So I arrived safe and sound on Sunday night! The flights were long, but it’s great being back home. I head down to Santa Barbara today to unload my luggage, see friends, and start writing my 15 page paper that’s due in two weeks :(. Even though I’m glad to be back, I can’t STAND the jet-lag. This morning I was wide awake at 5 am, and couldn’t fall back asleep. So naturally I woke up and began to be productive.
It was a great few months, and I wouldn’t of traded it for anything in the world. Even though it was bittersweet to leave Egypt it was good to get out into another part of the globe to explore. Thanks for being devoted “followers” and for caring so much about my time abroad.
Until next time!
Last Day in London :(
So for my last day in London, I’ve decided to go and see another West End show. It’s a 2:30 matinee of “The Children’s Hour”. Look at the picture below to see who’s starring in it :).
It’s been a great journey, and I feel that I’ve grown up quite a bit in the past few months. It’s the farthest that I’ve even been away from home; and quite frankly it’s been the most disconnected from everyone in my life that I’ve ever been. I can’t wait to be home now to see everyone and to tell more stories that couldn’t fit in this blog. I fly out from Heathrow tomorrow at 11:05 am to Munich, and from Munich to Los Angeles. I’ll see everyone when I get home :)
Second to Last Day in England
The moment that I’ve been dreading is slowly drawing closer and closer; I leave for home in two days time. Although it will be great to get home to see friends and family (and to give my “Mum” a big hug!) I still want to stay here in England. It has been such a great trip, and such a lucky opportunity for me. Who would of guessed that I would of essentially taken a quarter off of school to travel around the world. Just a recap of the trip so far: traveled to 6 countries, “lived” in 8 cities, flown 7 times (with two more to come), countless times riding the undergrounds throughout Europe, 1 train ride through the Chunnel, several other train rides into London, and too much money spent to keep track of. Not to mention I’ve visited and seen 3 cathedrals, 10 important (world-class) museums and art collections, and 2 west-end plays. Whew!
Today I’m going to the University College of London William Petrie Musuem and Saint Pauls Cathedral.

Anonymous asked: Antiquities? No! Don't support looting!
But it’s so Tempting! I can’t resist :)
A Foggy Day (In London Town)
Hello all! The weather over here in England has been a bit miserable; lots of overcast clouds and RAIN :( (not particularly my favorite). My trips to London on the train have been jam packed and full of many adventures. One of my favorite things that I’ve done this week: antiquities hunting! My parents for my 21st birthday have decided that I can buy my own Egyptian Antiquity if I find one. Keep your fingers crossed!
Some of the things that I’ve seen and done: Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abby (Where Prince William and Kate will be married), Cleopatras Needle, Trafalgar Square, the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum, and Picadilly Circus. After this I will head over to Buckingham Palace, perhaps I’ll even see the Queen!
More to come soon!
