Gorgeous colors, rich with the natural beauty of our earth. A keen eye, to see birds, waves, sunsets, and the talent to be able to capture it perfectly. A respite from today's busy digital world, where I can sit, breathe, and imagine.

London may be an ever-expanding tangle of concrete and gleaming glass but it also harbours wildlife that goes beyond pigeons, park ducks, and increasingly brazen gangs of foxes. From roaming deer and leaping lemurs to wallabies and alpacas, there are surprising creatures in every corner of the capital. Yes, a diverse array of city farms – originated by the band of early 1970s pioneers who turned a disused Kentish Town timberyard into London’s first rural hideaway – are dotted all over the capital.

Luckily, my program provider, Academic Programs International, included several weekend and day trips. There are still manyplaces I wished I would have had time to check out, but it was a great experience!

The ins and outs of getting around on the London Tube

Prior to studying abroad in London, I spoke with a friend about things I needed to know about London. The first thing he said was to get familiar with the tube. He also gave me a map so I could start studying. Before you leave for London, I would highly recommend getting familiar with the map. The tube will most likely be a part of your daily life. I’ve put together some information on the tube to help you get started!
