Farnsworth House Fall trip

It has been a really really too long since my last post! I've attempted to write about my grad backpack trip, but never had the motivation to complete that post. It's almost winter in Chicago now, so I've decided to end this lack of motivation by squeezing a post about this mini trip I took a few weeks ago when it was still fall in Chicago. I will start posting more often, for those who still follow me! Thanks and sorry for the delay! Work life is really different from academic life, and after staring at the monitor all day at work you kind of lose motivation to work more at home.

Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour!

I thought I was going to continue writing about my previous summer backpacking trip, but I decided to write more about my time in London (since it's still fresh in my mind). This trip took place a few months ago, when congee gave me a free ticket to visit the Warner Bros studio because his friend couldn't make it. The Warner Bros studio is located northwest of London 15 minutes bus ride away from Watford Junction. This is where the magical Harry Potter Series was filmed, with original gimmicks and costumes used in the real film.  There are also a bunch of really nice models of architecture from the movie! Anyways I'll try to keep the picture count low in this blog, because my last post had way too many photos which made viewing the blog really slow!

Places to visit in London

So this is the post where I post a lot of pictures of places I've visited in London. I wanted to keep the picture count low for this post, but I realized that it is really impossible for me to make this a short post, since I've been living in London for around 4 months and been to a ton of places I want to share. All these places are organized in chronological order and no other specific ordering strategy! I will continue on my long a do eurotrip posts after this blog! First I'll just show a map of the places I've been in London! These places include architecture and restaurants that I visited and some places I wanted to visit but didn't have time!

I was tempted to split this post into many parts, but in the end I just went with this really long post! 

Here is the tldr photo album link of some of the places I visited in London

Cambridge Day Trip (10/17) | 2015

Cambridge is about 50 minutes away from London, since we had a lot of work to do that weekend so I only visited Cambridge for one day, which was obviously not enough to see everything. I went an unconventional route to see more of the contemporary and post modern architecture, instead of the older architecture by christopher Wren and the Kings College Chappel.
