What else should I do before I finish university?

1 Week Mary x



  1. Not sure how common they are at your university but going on a subcrawl is a must! We do them in Glasgow because it’s a circle and the aim is find the nearest pub/bar to each subway stop and have a drink in it, working your way around the stops! Not sure how it would work unless you were on the circle… but it’s great fun!

    1. Yayyy I’m so glad to hear that! And of course not, I’d love to read that!!! So sorry for the late reply, I’m never getting this behind with blog comments again (I hope!) xxx

  2. ooooh if youre in london definitely walk along a few canals, check out the canal bookstore (last i checked that was in islington) go to a few rooftop places (rooftops bars and gardens) x

    1. Oh my gosh that sounds so nice! Definitely have to check out the canal bookstore & I was planning on going to some rooftop places, but for some reason never did lol, thank you for reminding me! X
