SUPER useful post about not frying your devices overseas!
 
A Guide to #Electronics #Abroad - great #tips you don't want to leave home without! #studyabroad #london #travel

Love Star Wars? You'll be looking for Luke in Ireland, then...
 
#starwars fans - visit the Skellig Islands, #Ireland yourself! Here's how. #ForceAwakens
