One of our orientation events was at Smithy's Wine Bar and Restaurant. We enjoyed some canapes like mini sausages, chicken fingers and cheese biscuits and listened to some great music by a popular DJ in London. Definitely one of the most fun evenings...we headed to The Rocket after a few hours :)
After our first day of classes, we decided to dive in and explore London...and boy did we. We took the Tube to Piccadilly Circus (the Times Square of London) and walked through all of Piccadilly, Theatre District, Oxford Street and Leicester Square. We picked up some hot drinks from Caffe Nero to keep us going and saw a lot of cool stuff! We also got to visit the Topshop here and it was packed even on a Monday afternoon!
Of course, we had to take the cute red telephone booths as a photo-op:
All in all, it's going great here so far! I'm really glad I chose to study abroad :) Definitely a wonderful experience to learn new things and a different culture.
