I spent a semester abroad in London, England and it changed my life for the better. I came back to America a much more humble, appreciative and mature woman.
While being in London I have learned:
It will rain when you least expect it
The tube is really hot and will stop whenever it is least convenient for you
Bikes will run you over
Pounds are much more expensive than dollars
Indian food is devine
It will take 3 different tubes to go 2 miles
No one actually calls the bathroom the “water closet”
Establishments barely take credit cards and when they do, they never take American Express
Everything is expensive
Bumble is a great way to meet British men
Dryers don’t really exist
Everything is a scam
A night out will cost you at least 40 Pounds… that’s over $60
If you’re lucky enough to have a club promoter, it doesn’t help because they barely supply any alcohol
Everyone is always dressed nicely (suits on suits on suits)
Cabs are expensive
& I could go on forever…
Take a look into my first few weeks!
