Lucky me, I got to attend the graduation ceremonies for my Masters course at the University of Leicester this past weekend. I graduated with a Masters in Museum Studies ‘with Distinction’, alongside the rest of my classmates from around the world. One of those classmates happens to be from the same city as me, so I traveled with my friend and study-buddy Lauren, and to make the trip worth the effort we stayed an entire week.
Staying in Leicester with one of my CouchSurfing friends, we hit the pub to watch some football (don’t remember who played), visited our favorite tea shop more than once (St Martin’s is the best in town), indulged in Indian food and late nights out with friends, and were even treated to a homemade Sunday roast (wish I had taken a picture of it, delicious!). To top it all off, we stayed the last day in London, visiting the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studios and enjoying Thai food in London’s West End, followed by drinks on the Thames. All in all, not a bad week!
