Why hello there! My name is Madelaine, and I’m just a girl with a craving for exploration, a love of travel and a passion for theatre! Originally from the Pacific Northwest, in the Autumn of 2013, I embarked on my study abroad adventure to the U.K. and started this blog as a way to document my trip and keep my family and friends updated on my experiences living in a different city. Now, I’ve decided to continue this blog to share some of my experiences and advice as a student studying in London, as well as to continue to write about my travels so I can look back on these stories in the future! So feel free to grab a cup of tea, coffee or whatever makes you feel warm and cozy and follow me along this journey! Hopefully I have some interesting and funny stories to tell, after all, Audrey Hepburn said it best “laughing is the best calorie burner!”
What camera do you use?
I use a Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS and occasionally an iPhone 4S to snap photos on the go! It may not be perfect, but it gets the job done.
How did you come up with your blog name “A Rose By Any Other Name”?
I’m started this blog as a way to document my time studying abroad in England so I wanted to come up with a title that was both relevent to me and my studies. This is part of a quote from Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, and Rose is also my middle name so it just seemed to work!
