A day out in Warwick

As I told you in one of my previous posts (http://blog.ucb.ac.uk/index.php/blog/2018/09/11/exploring-birmingham/), my family visited me a few weeks ago and we had tons of things we wanted to do, but not enough time for everything ☹.

My train playlist

My train playlist

As an inner city college, most people don’t live anywhere near UCB, and that means one thing. Commuting. Commuting is horrible, tiring and extra minutes or hours on top of an already long day. I’m complaining, but some of my friends travel ridiculous distances to […]
