Vacation Insights


This past August, I traveled to England on my own and not only was it an AMAZING trip, it was a real eye opener for me. I learned so much about myself and all the great things I was capable of doing. You can say that this trip was a rite of passage for me.

So I just wanted to share some the writings that put down while I was there (not much though, I was traveling from place to place frequently). I hope you enjoy reading them!


August 8, 2016   

Well, I’m finally here again! I really didn’t think it hit me until I looked outside my hotel room’s window and saw the beautiful stonework and the scenic landscape. I’m finally back in England! Windermere to be most exact. As far as I can see, Windermere is a gorgeous  small town. I already feel relaxed here. The streets are a little narrow but what do you expect for a small town?

Day 28: London



I would read in books and history books from school about the rich culture of London. From then on, I always wanted to visit it. And when I got that chance the summer before my senior year, as soon as I stepped off the plane, I fell in love. I just felt right at home. Since I grew up and live in New York City, some people are bewildered with my wish to move to London, when it is a major city like New York. Although they are both major cities, that is the only connection they have between them. London is full of culture and history in my opinion fails comparison to New York. And Londoners, I know you have criticisms about the Underground. Try riding New York City Transit for a while and you’ll think the Tube is a godsend.

So I would like to move to London one day. Anywhere in the UK if being truthful. But it is so expensive to move right now. So I have to settle with visiting right now.
