Stonehenge

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

I am having a great time spending the end of my senior year with these two on the London Study Abroad trip. We went to Stonehenge and learned all about the things they DON’T know about it. The theories are many and varying but it is well accepted that this was a magnificent site most likely used for religious purposes. The audio guide was very informative on theories as well as historical excavations. Some of the rocks built here would had to have been carried 40+ miles. I can definitely see why people thought of this as a magical place. It filled me with ideas for future novels. I was surprised we were able to get shots without seeing the numerous tourists in the photos. My only disappointment was we were unable to walk inside the Stonehenge due to its fragile foundation. 

The London Theater Scene

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017


For the London Study Abroad program, I am a member of the theater group. In addition to blogging, creating Facebook posts, and writing a final paper, as a class we are expected to attend many planned shows during our travels. So far, we have seen Agatha Christies “The Mouse Trap”, “The Woman in Black”, and “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.” Agatha Christies “The Mousetrap” is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running play in history. Every night they perform a show is a new world record, and I was present for one of those! The Woman in Black is exactly the story you’re thinking of, the one that became a movie with Daniel Radcliffe. I was curious as to how a play could get me afraid but it was successful! But no spoilers for these shows or Curious Incident, you’ll have to see them for yourself. Before the trip is over, I am excited to be seeing Wicked and Kinky boots as well as an array of several other performances on our schedule. 

Harry Potter Universe

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017


Our faculty Abroad sure know their students! Everyone in the London Study Abroad group was thrilled to be visiting Harry Potter Universe this week. This is the location of many surviving Harry Potter sets and thousands of props from the movies. I have stood where Daniel Radcliffe stood, walked where Emma Watson walked, and eaten where Rupert Grint has eaten.
