From street food to historical architecture.

10 Reasons To Love London

With its vibrant culture and extensive history everywhere you look, London is truly one of the most amazing cities in the world. Living there exposed me to some of the most wonderful things the city had to offer.

1. The Delicious Food

Whether it is street food you can find at markets or dishes by world-renowned chefs at boutique restaurants.

3. The Cool Music

London has tons of live music venues of all genres. Some of the biggest bands got their start in the popular music venues throughout the city. It’s the perfect place to discover new bands and music that will probably be on the radio in a couple of years.

4. The Trendy Shopping

Whether you’re more of a commercial, big brand, Oxford Street shopper or a vintage, Shoreditch bargain finder, London has the best shopping spots. It’s a fashion capital for a reason.

6. The Free Museums

Most museums in London are free to everyone. So, you can see amazing fragments of English and European history at the British Museum or the Museum of London, or witness the newest pieces from modern artists at the Tate or Design Museum.

7. All The Parks

London is known for having lots of parks in every part of the city. In fact, it has more green space than any other city in the world. You can walk through the trees at Hampstead Heath, see the skyline at the top of Primrose Hill or ride a paddleboat at the ponds in Regents Park.

Paying students is not the fundamental problem.


It is March and with it comes madness, and with that madness comes the exhausting debate on whether or not college athletes should get paid.

Things To Do In Austin Over Spring Break

From swimming holes to SXSW, I got you covered.

Spi Abroad

With spring break quickly approaching in the next couple of weeks for high school and college students, most will be heading home to spend time with family and friends, while others will be going to explore new places such as the beach or someplace new to go. Austin has been ranked in numerous lists of best cities to visit and move to in the U.S, but having been born in raised in Austin, I can tell you everything there is to do.

With spring break around the corner, it's time to look at some ground rules. We are used to seeing insane partying in Panama City Beach and other Florida locations. We have an image in our minds of what the perfect Spring Break is as depicted in countless movies. We are ready to party hard. With that in mind ... we all wanna make it back alive to continue on our path of this wonderful journey for a college education.


1. Rally. Do you really want a hangover at 8 p.m.? I don't think so.

2. Buy souvenirs. I know you want a new tank top to wear every day. 

3. Spend most of your hours on the beach. You don't want to come back from Spring Break with no color. Being the pale friend is no fun.

4. Take a ton of pictures. These will help you remember the week for years to come.

5. Remember to have #NOREGRETS. What happens on Spring Break, stays on Spring Break. (The Vegas Rule.)


1. Don't do anything in public that you wouldn't want your mother seeing a picture of. Your friends will take pictures, I promise. You don't want this as wedding blackmail years later.

2. Don't get sick in public. If you don't feel good, go back to your hotel.

3. Don't leave any friends behind. They most likely won't be comfortable with the area. They may not even speak the native language.

4. Don't get caught. Take this whichever way you want.

5. Don't break the 'Vegas Rule'. I don't care if it is 10 years down the line.
