May 30, 2013 Walking the streets of London like a pro!!! Enjoying my time here so far.

May 27, 2013 Very excited about this trip. Today I’ll be in Oklahoma, but tomorrow I’ll be on my way to London. I’ve been planning on this trip all semester, and now it’s finally here. I immediately turn this journey to its main purpose which is to learn about other cultures and actually have a personal experience in another country. I’m anxious and excited and really looking forward to everything that’s coming my way.

Our first full day in London

Yesterday was eventful, from riding the tube for the first time to venturing out to the hop on hop off bus ride, we had a great day and it really wore us out. I was so sleepy I fell asleep standing up a couple times and dozed off while sitting in the comfy warm double decker bus. We ate at a British pub last night and the salmon fish cakes were to die for.We got a lot of much needed rest that night and are ready to go go go today. We will see more of the city and get lost in the hustle and bustle of busy city folk. I want to do everything we possibly can!

London Tube: thank goodness we packed light!

 

London Calling

So impressed with students on day one. In the last 24 hours, they’ve flown on two jets, ridden multiple Tubes, one bus and one airport tram. Those who rode their first airplanes did so like pro’s. London thus far has included a stroll through Covent Garden, a tour through the heart of London, a real pub meal – and that’s while everyone was extremely jet lagged! One of today’s learning moments: how to sleep while standing with eyes open.
