I had a fever of over 102, couldn't get out of bed and asked if they could send a doctor to my house (which had been told to the students in the beginning of the program could be done) and I was told no, I needed to travel 45 minutes to a doctor which was extremely hard to do. I ended up having to take an uber which was expensive because I couldnt make it to a bus stop or tube stop because I was that sick

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
