2012 Exchange to London, England

a trip by Michael Burgess
From: December 29th 2011
Until: May 30th 2012

Starting in January 2012, Mike was studying while on an exchange semester through King's College in London. After 140 days, over 36,200 km, more than 60 new friends and travels through 13 countries, the semester came to an end. It sounds like a lot, but it flew by. What a ride it was. Thanks to all of our new friends for being such great people and travel buddies!

While Mike returned to Canada, Elysia continued to travel in Europe for two more weeks (through Romania and Portugal) before coming back to Canada at the end of May.
