Day One

Despite some exhaustion from jet-lag and nervous jitters, I managed to have a great first night in London! Our professor took us on a walk around the neighbourhood to get familiar. My dorm room is very close to Waterloo station, a huge Tube stop station. I love the freedom of the subway here. We walked the Queen’s Walk on the South Bank, also very close to my dorm. She took us to a cool pizza spot on Gabriel’s Wharf. Then we got to practice taking the Tube to Leicester Square and saw the theatre district.


  1. I felt like I mastered the Tube the first time I was in London but the friend that was traveling with me...well I felt like I had to hold her hand. She couldn't figure out the map to save her life. Oddly enough as I type this there is a pencil case next to the keyboard that is a map of the Tube. :)

  2. P.S. I left out the part about finding a great nightclub on the first night, called DaVinci's! It's open all night, but I didn't make it long past midnight!

  3. OMG. I know that club! We stayed in the theatre district when I was there in '05.
