    A Sip of Scotland for Mental Well-being: why we all need a ‘do-nothing’ trip

A Sip of Scotland for Mental Well-being: why we all need a ‘do-nothing’ trip

I’m a city girl through and through. I love the noise, the hustle-bustle lifestyle, the traffic. It keeps me entertained and occupied. Plus, it is very convenient. Anything and everything is available within a one-mile radius. But sometimes, it does overwhelm you and when you feel yourself getting physically and mentally exhausted, you know it’s time to take a […]

My Top 5 Day Trips from London

London is an excellent choice for travelers as it is located at an accessible distance to world famous cities and attractions in the UK. I get some time to see London on a off day during the week, and a few European cities during the term breaks. However, there are a lot of beautiful cities in the UK that […]

Why We Should all Start Chasing the Sun

Although the weather here can feed my creativity and learning, I was also severely lacking vitamin D. We found a cheap last-minute flight to Milan and planned a weekend trip.

Oxford – a lot more to offer than Oxford University!

What do you guys usually do on your weekends? I went to Oxford for my last weekend in Michaelmas term.

Friends around me have been saying how convenient it is to travel within the UK by train, but that concept hasn’t sunk in until I went on the journey and realised it only took me a little more than an […]

    Venturing to the Parts Unknown: The Importance of Travelling as a Student

Venturing to the Parts Unknown: The Importance of Travelling as a Student

Before living in London, I haven’t seen many parts of the world, let alone destinations in Europe like most millennials. Even moving to London was a big step for me. After watching many episodes of the late Anthony Bourdain’s travels and seeing beautiful pictures of destinations in other parts of Europe on Instagram, I was motivated to move to […]

Documenting my student life in video blogs: The LSE-Fudan Exchange Programme

A guest post written by Firzanah Firdaus, undergraduate student in the Department of Statistics

My terrible teenage crises (think boys, puberty and mean girls) were slightly more bearable thanks to YouTube. Every time I had what was then seen as a ‘first world problem’ I would type: ‘how to get over your first heartbreak’ on the search bar and 15 minutes […]
