My girlfriend is from the same town as me, and when she recently went home for a visit, she spent an evening at my family’s house, where everybody ate a massive roast (prepared by my mum, who has ruined quite a few foods for me because I know I’ll never be able to cook them as well) and played...

My flatmate recently returned back to Australia, leaving me in Spain on my own until June. Initially I panicked and assumed I’d be lonely and hate it. But living alone is way better than you might initially think. There’s obvious benefits, like being able to shower with the door open, walking...

If there’s one thing that Italy does well, it’s food. And while ‘il bel paese’ is best known for its pizza, pasta and gelato there are so many different types of food, pastries and even types of coffee to be discovered. Italy is such a diverse country with each region packed with...

Getting your money's worth in Italy is easy - but you need to predict the rip-offs and learn how to beat the system. You could spend 15€ on a glass of wine in Rome's Piazza Navona or you could grab an incredible 3€ slice of pizza and a beer and make yourself comfortable...

So this blog post I thought I'd talk a bit about the things that you might not expect to find in Spain. Not only is Spain a lot bigger than I thought, it's a lot more diverse too. So it's a great place to go for so many different reasons.Snow Not just up the mountains, but in towns and villages it snows...

On the 21st February I move out of my home in Avignon. The last six months have been nothing short of an adventure, to say the least. I have grown to love this city like an old friend and I feel like even now I still fall in love a little bit more every day. From the way the white stone buildings reflect...

The end of January and the beginning of February was a very fun time in my year abroad, as I had back to back visitors before France’s February vacation. On the last weekend of January, my boyfriend came to visit and feeling that I had probably already dragged him around too many Lille sites,...
