24 May 2014: London, Don’t Make Me Leave

London from morgan gerber on Vimeo. God save the Queen if I never return to London. This city has properly raised me into something more than I was before I came. It will be a hard page to turn over. I had 63 hours in London, but each hour feels days apart. I went to…

20 May 2014: Oslo

In short, I learned how to say ice cream in Norwegian this week: iskrem. But in greater length, I found myself at the airport on Thursday morning staring at the departures board trying to remember where I was going at such an early hour. I find myself often not remembering my next destination, though. I…

14 May 2014: Edinburgh

I’m always early. I ended up sitting at the airport for what seemed like a very long time because of a delay and an unnecessary need to awake well before a 4:45am alarm. I took two buses to Stansted, flew a lowcost airline and arrived in Edinburgh before lunch. I checked in to the hostel,…

4 May 2014: Afternoon Tea

It’s about time I can cross Afternoon Tea off my must-do London list. As a last date with my flat mates, we dressed up and put our pinkies out at Soho’s Secret Tea Room. We entered through the bar and up a back narrow, spiral staircase to find a kitschy little room with mix-matched china…

2 May 2014: How is it May?

I was so confused about my Uni schedule before arriving here. How could I have three weeks off for break followed by a month of finals? I still don’t have the answers, but I do know that I’m now done with classes and have turned in all my projects and papers. I have a pending…
