London & Cambridge - July 2011

  Back in 2011 I spent two weeks in London on a summer course. It was amazing. I met so many people from all over the world. In my apartment we were six girls: me and my friend, from Portugal, Daniela, from Italy, Shihoko, from Japan, Lilian, from Hong Kong and Aida, from Tehran.

  We had classes almost every morning and we used to spend the afternoons walking around the city, visiting museums and  sightseeing. It was fantastic to get to know the British culture from the inside. We weren't at a hotel, we lived in a apartment and we had to live like any other person in the country. We had to take the bus or the underground every morning to go to school, to shop for groceries to make dinner and, in the end of the day, we had to walk in the middle of the crowd in Oxford Street to get a bus and simply go home.

  We visited Cambridge, it's such a beautiful town. It took my breath away.

  At lunch we went to this little restaurant where I tasted a Jacked Potato. Delicious.

  London is such a great city. I visited Notting Hill and the Portobello Market, the world largest antiques market. Those little houses are so adorable. It became onde of my favourites parts of London.

  It was an amazing experience and I think everyone should have it. Live in a foreign country while learning a language and discovering its culture it's one of the best adventures of life.
