Life in London and Iceland

Twenty days ago, was the first time I step foot in a different country solo. I wake up every morning feeling so grateful of the opportunity to study abroad in London. I still have not wrapped my mind around that I am here! It feels like a dream come true. It feels so unreal to be walking the streets of London. There is so much to explore. Someone once told me, “when you feel tired of London, you feel tired of life.” I understand the meaning behind it now and I can’t agree more!

The weather here is not too cold or hot. It feels like Fall most of the time. There is a nice breeze in the morning, but then it gets really cold at night. It is perfect weather to wear sweaters and boots, but it does rain on and off throughout the day which is why I try to wear a waterproof jacket or carry an umbrella with me. Rain boots are unnecessary because it rarely rains all day.

On Monday, I roamed around the galleries of the Victoria and Albert Museum. It was enormous! I felt like I could get lost all day in there. There were many beautiful architectures and rich history.  My favorite part was sitting outside of the garden named after John Madejski . There was a café inside the museum and there are amazing foods. I highly recommend visiting this museum and others in the area because they are all free. Who doesn’t love free admission?


This past weekend I went to Iceland. I don’t even know where to begin. It was extremely cold. The weather was not consistent and it rained on and off, but the views were breathtaking. I visited the Blue lagoon and went snorkeling between two continental plates. It was an extraordinary experience because the Blue Lagoon is one of the wonders of the world and I never went snorkeling in the cold before. Even though it was a short trip, it will not be the last. I want to go back to Iceland and explore other areas! I highly recommend Iceland to anyone who loves the outdoors and hiking.

Stay tuned for my next post in Norway !
