I came to study on the mainland of Europe, so I would have opportunities to travel easily between various countries. Having been here nearly 3 months, I thought now would be the time to act on that. Last month, my university were offering a trip to Antwerp, Belgium, for €15 so it was an offer I… Continue reading A Day In Antwerp
Ever since my adopted cousin, Ian, moved to England three years ago, my parents have thrown a Thanksgiving dinner for him. We usually celebrate the weekend after the Americans, however, this year it was easiest for us to celebrate a little earlier, on the 11th of November.
I had a week off school for Autumn break and I had originally planned to stay here in the Netherlands. However, when my mum texted me to say that Stockard Channing was in a play running on the West End, we decided it was essential that we went to see it. So last Friday, I… Continue reading Back to Old Blighty (Again)
Anyone who knows me or has been here before will probably know that I have friends, who are so close they might as well be family, in New Jersey. Seen as my cousin of sorts lives in Leicester, his parents flew over to England to visit him for a few days. Last weekend, my mum… Continue reading Surprising My Family

The first time I visited New York, I was 13 years old. As soon as my feet hit the pavement, I felt at home. I think I managed to pick up an American accent by the time we'd walked the 10 blocks from Penn Station to our hotel. That week we did everything a tourist… Continue reading A New New York Adventure
A friend of my parent's emigrated to the USA long before I was born. Coincidentally, he and his wife had children the same ages as my brother and I, so when we were kids we became pen pals and would often email each other. In recent years, Sandy, their daughter, has become one of my… Continue reading The Life of an American Teenager
If any of you aren't new to my blog, you may know that back in January I wrote a post about how I have been accepted into Utrecht University of Applied Sciences. Earlier this month my mum, dad and I took a trip out to the city to explore a bit more and spend some time looking at what we could see of the accommodation.
As you will know if you read my most recent post, I recently took a trip to France. We spent most our time in Disneyland, but took five hours out from all the magic and happiness to spend a Saturday afternoon in Paris.
