A Travellerspoint blog

First few days!

After a journey that felt like ages, I landed at Heathrow and took the Tube to Bounds Green where Jordana picked me up and we walked to her house. I was obviously exhausted that night and I can never remember being so excited to sleep. As tired as I was, I couldn't believe that I slept til noon the next day! I hoisted myself up and took the train out to Russell Square where I went to the British Museum which was beautiful...and free! Later in the day, I came home and Jordana took me out for delicious Indian food and my first pub!
Today I went to the Sherlock Holmes Museum which was tiny but pretty interesting (I didn't realize that people actually think he was a real person? I thought we all just agreed he was fictitious). Then Jordana met me for yummy pizza - they had a cheese free pizza with garlic right on the menu which is perfect for me! And then we went to South London to see the famous sights of London: Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and Parliament.
I have found that people are so nice here! And it has been such a pleasure learning about a new culture and seeing all the diversity here in London. Tomorrow I am heading to Oxford by train to move in at the same time as my fellow Visiting Students. I have had a blast with Jordana and am so grateful to her for showing me the ropes and being so welcoming; I will definitely be back!
PS shout out to Maddie, Jordana's dog for being adorable and also welcoming!
