An Evening Jog on the Millenium Walk

Just got back from a 45 minute jog along the River Thames. It's an amazing thing to go for a run and pass such world-famous sites as Big Ben and the Parliament building, the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe Theater and the Tate Modern museum. My apartment in which I'm renting a room is practically in the shadow of Big Ben--the location really couldn't be better. I found the apartment through the website AirBnB.com. I've always found jogs as a great way to either orient yourself in a city, or get a break from the bustle. While you may be dodging throngs of tourists, it's always entertaining at least to dance through these groups on my quest to break a sweat. MapMyRun.com is another good website--one that let's you post your favorite routes anywhere in the world, or take suggestions from others.

Happy Backpackers

The trip to Budapest was amazing! I did not know what to expect from Budapest because my roommate just told me to go with her so I was up for anything, but it ended up being one of my favorite trips so far of my study abroad experience. The hostel we stayed at gave us an excellent taste of the Budapest night life while Bogi took us to places that I definitely would not have been able to get to on my own or had known about if not for her WSA tour. It was a great weekend and I highly recommend it.
