Check out this video from TED-Ed to find out why learning a second language is better brain food that all the fish in the sea:
Realizing that you’ve forgotten how long an inch was, but still haven’t really figured out centimeters. #worldtravelerproblems
London is truly one of the world’s great cities. Its history reaches back about 6,500 years, and today is a center of the arts, global finance, fashion, education—almost everything. It is remarkably diverse, home to people representing countries all around the earth.
A city that draws cultures of the world to it? Where you can experience not only local customs and food, but also those from scores of other countries? That sounds like a great place for a study abroad program.
And that’s exactly why, every other year, Shoreline sends students there. This past fall quarter, two Shoreline students were there. Your next opportunity to follow in Dolphie’s footsteps will be fall quarter 2016. It’s never too early to start planning for your study abroad adventures (especially if you want scholarships): if you’re interested, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Yes! A shot from the most recent episode of Game of Thrones basically recreated this photo. This isn’t even close to the first time that the city has appeared in the show, though. According to roughguides.com, Dubrovnik, Croatia (the city in the photo) has been used as the setting for King’s Landing since the second season.
So Dolphie didn’t just go to Croatia—he went to Westeros. And you know what? I’m just going to admit it: I’m jealous. A jealous nerdy nerd.
So who’s up for a study abroad program in the Seven Kingdoms?
The weekend after next, will I be feeling Charming European Town…
or Horrifyingly Awesome Human Bone Art?

If New York City is the big apple, what large fruits or foods might the other great cities of the world be? Is London the giant mushy pea? (Actually, it’s The Old Smoke, but who’s counting anyway?) Considering the damp and general grayness (sound familiar?) which leads to brilliant green grasses, it might not be the most inaccurate moniker. Especially since The Emerald City is already taken.
One particular aspect of London that Dolphie focused on during his stop there was the transportation. The big red buses, the black cabs, the underground (aka the tube, which looking at the picture in the slideshow below now makes perfect sense)—I don’t quite get why, but London’s means of getting around sure seem to have a habit of becoming iconic.
If you were a Londoner, how would you prefer to get around?
