Heaven on Earth?

As impressed as I am with the man-made structures in Scotland, I am more impressed with the structures that man had no part in creating.  By no means am I exaggerating when I say that the Scotland may just be the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I have  ascended into the jungle mountains…

Lunar New Year in London

Coming back to your uni routine after a long break can be challenging. I spent my holiday staying up late and running out and about. Now it’s all about tutorials from 9am and afternoons spent in the library… welcome back I guess. Before I truly accept this fact, I thought ‘why not go on a…

From the very south to northernmost point.

Back to the old routine, now. Essays, tutorials, lectures, library times. The holidays are over now. However that does not mean we cannot enjoy the wonders of the island. I spent my holidays not going back to my country (as most visiting students do) but staying here and enjoying the places of England. I went…

72 Hours in Dublin

A few weekends ago, I was lucky enough to spend the weekend in Dublin, Ireland, visiting a good friend who’s doing an internship there. Dublin is a truly wonderful city, with a rich history and interesting layout. The vibe of the city varies from truly historical and seaside to modern and cosmopolitan to edgy and…

Rugby : the beeline to Scotland’s heart

When you are an exchange student you tend to meet a lot of other international students – exchange or not. Especially in an university as cosmopolitan as Edinburgh. It is a great experience, you get to discover many traditions from all over the world. Everybody is far from home and want to try to keep…

Getting Lost in Edinburgh

It is hard to believe that I have been in Edinburgh for more than two weeks! I suspect the next 4 months will go by at a seemingly rapid pace, which is a shame because this place is wonderful. The Old Town is stubbornly stuck in a century past. If for some reason you forget its…

Dublin and Belfast city breaks.

Hi there, and welcome back! I’ve never written an article comparing the academic style in Edinburgh and in France. However, if there’s one thing I can say is a hundred per cent better here, it’s having all your exams in December and not in January. Being able to enjoy Christmas without guiltily thinking that you…

The Highlands… again

I keep traveling as usual.  I will never change that …at least this year. Although I have been out of the UK this month exploring the Scandinavian countries, I will tell about my journey through the Highlands. Obviously, I had my weeks of studying. Not all the month was travelling. As exam period I spent…
