Approximately 1/10 of my time here is over now (I’m leaving in June) – it’s impossible to believe, though perhaps that’s because I simply refuse to do so.
Even though I’ve really just arrived, I’ve grown incredibly attached to this city – the campus, the city centre, the various places to explore, and of course the people! Even though I’m still at the beginning of my experience here, it pains me to think of leaving in a few months.
Here’s a few photos of what I’ve done so far:
My friends and I took a leisurely walk near the city centre and stumbled upon some gardens
That evening we went down to the city centre to buy coach cards for a discounted price on our bus ride to London. I’d never been there at night, and it was simply beautiful.
The other night, Rachel and Lee and I went down to a local pub called “The Unicorn.” We met Lee’s flatmate Jess along the way and got her to come along too :) The pub was even better than I expected. There was a lovely, traditional pub atmosphere, which was only improved by the prints of the famous unicorn tapestry series (which, in case you don’t know, were used as the tapestries in the Gryffindor Common Room in the HP movies). I can’t wait to try new pubs, but I will definitely visit this one again!
There are more photos in the gallery, if you’re interested! :)
