This past spring, in addition to assisting in the general study abroad experience for our spring kiddos, I helped with a lot of the logistics for our summer custom programs (CPs)! This involved countless hours of planning tours and pricing out activities for our many CPs that visit London for short summer immersion trips. I… Continue reading The Champagne Life
Whilst running work errands last week, I found myself next to the Palace Theatre, most famous for being the current home of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play. It’s a massive production, featuring two three hour long parts, and it’s been on my bucket list for a whole year. The play is notoriously hard to… Continue reading Pure Magic

I was entirely mentally unprepared the first… Continue reading London To-Dos
London is HUGE. HUGE. There is always a cultural festival happening, a new restaurant to try, or a new art exhibit to see.

In an effort to become… Continue reading City Detox
