Have you heard about Pokemon Go?

If you haven’t heard of Pokemon Go in the past month, where have you been? Everyone is on it trying to catch their favourite Pokemon. So what exactly is it for those of you who don’t know? Pokemon Go is an originally American App which can be downloaded on iPhone and Android. It is a game which shows all your favourite old school Pokemon characters coming to Earth, and gives you the opportunity to catch them.

All you have to do is walk around with your phone and it will vibrate when a Pokemon is near. Some give in easily; others resist capture, and will keep you jabbing at your phone like a loon for a good few minutes, before you maybe give up and actually go on with your commute.

Once you catch your Pokemon, you can go to a ‘Pokemon Gym’ to fight with others. And the rumour has it, these are the best Pokemon Gyms in London:

Big Ben

Piccadilly Circus

Covent Garden

Fourth Plinth

Waterloo Station

London Eye

However, in order to catch Pokemon, you need ‘Pokeballs’, which can be collected at ‘Pokestops’. We found out that these are the best Pokestops in London:

Savoy Hotel

Charlie Chaplin statue in Leicester Square

Winston Churchill statue in Parliament Square

Waterloo Bridge

Cenotaph

Some may say that this App is bad, as it leads to young people being even more attached to their phone trying to find the next best Pokemon. However, it is different to all other gaming Apps, as it gets you out the house, and gets you exploring the amazing city of London!

Top 7 reasons to choose Lyon rather than Paris

Yes, we all know about the beauty of the French capital, its historic monuments, dining scene, spectacular river banks… and the list goes on.

But what about the city of Lyon, just a two-hour trip to the south by train? We never hear Lyon bragging about what it has to offer.

Just for starters, it’s rich in Roman history and the first motion film camera was invented there, but there’s actually a whole lot more going for this city than you might have thought.

A new way to think about music in London

Music and London is a great love story. Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, all marked the history of music, and all made their first steps in music in London. The city evolved with the rhythm of that music from various origins. Today, the British electronic scene is one of the most legendary and accurate in the world, and it is in London that DJs are practising their sets. In mythical clubs such as the Fabric or the Village Underground. It seems impossible to go inside these temples of electronic music without wanting to come back, again and again.

Top roommate you will find in every Erasmus flat

This morning, I sit in this tiny café. In this tiny street of this town that has become so tiny. I’m vaguely trying to do my work. This coffee I’m drinking, I do not think it is good; in Paris, I would have hated it. Yet here I love it. Like this chair wobbly, uncomfortable, and those passers-by who became friends, ye I do not know them. At home, we ignore the people that have crossed; we certainly don’t invest the time to sit and admire them. It’s strange, but I needed to love the people who live here; those who have always lived here, been here three months, arrived yesterday, those who will depart tomorrow and those who will remain all their lives.
