Whether by bus, plane, or boat, Temple students studying in London have gotten the amazing opportunity to easily travel around Europe. Students have traveled to Greece, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Sweden, Barcelona and more.
“I feel very independent and I feel like I’ve matured almost because I’ve never had to travel by myself before, I’ve always done it like with my parents or family,” says student Emma Saperstein.
Trips can last anywhere from two days over a weekend to a whole week during fall break due to the close proximity of countries. Living in Europe allows quick and inexpensive travel for students. To put it in perspective, the distance from Paris to Amsterdam (267 miles) is about the same as the distance from Philadelphia to Boston (271 miles).
With a little over a month left abroad, students are still planning to travel to other countries in the weeks to come. Even though Temple students abroad have fallen in love with the city of London, getting the chance to travel around Europe has been a once in a lifetime experience.
