Surrey meets India

An insight into life at Surrey from two current Indian students.

Summer Break!!

Hi all, Hope you all are doing well. It’s been a long since I blogged sorry about that was busy with the exams. As it was difficult for me to commute during the revision weeks I decide to stay in the university accommodation. When I told the same to accommodation services they were kind enough […]


End of exams

Hello guys, Sorry for being so inconsistent with the blogs. I am finally done with my lectures and also my exams. To be frank, I did not experience much stress during the exam time. That must be because I had just one exam and had plenty of time to study and revise. That was not […]

Long time no see

Hey guys, So sorry for the absence of blogs for the past few weeks. The university was closed for Easter break and I was bombarded with courseworks as soon as university reopened. The past few weeks have been very eventful I must say. Before the easter break, the university hosted a number of events run […]


Stone Henge

Hi all,

Hope you are doing good. Last Saturday was my first visit to a historical monument in UK and it was Stonehenge. It is one of the pre-historic monument and was built in 3000B.C. And the surprising thing about it is, there is no particular reason why it was built. There were excavations recently to know how and why it was built. All the valuables were displayed in the exhibition which was at the entrance. Some of them were like Facial reconstruction of a man who lived there when the Stonehenge was built. I watched in many TV shows that facial reconstruction is possible but when I saw it there, I was speechless. As we exited the exhibition we could see the old homes which were also reconstructed recently. It showed how the people in the past lived their and also some the tools that they used to hunt animals like knifes, bows and arrows. Just beside the exhibition there was artificially made which resembles just like one of the stones used in constructing it. There was a rope tied to it and visitors were allowed to pull it. I tried pulling and it said 99 more needed, this showed me how weak I’m and also the purpose of it was to show how hard it would have been for the people in 3000 B.C to bring it there and place it in such a position that, a person standing in the circle of the Stonehenge and watching the sunrise on June 21st “Summer solstice” is nothing short of magical. The only disappointing thing when we visited, it was very cold with heavy wind, we were not able to stand their and admire the beauty for more than 3omins. I would definitely recommend visiting Stonehenge if you are in UK even for a short trip. The best time visit is on the Summer and winter solstice. Will see you next week with more updates on my Cardiff and Italy trip.
