Hallo! Finding somewhere to live for both semesters this year has been one of the hardest and most stressful things I’ve ever been through. If you’ve been on/are on a year abroad, you’ll know (unless you’ve been extremely lucky). Looking back, I was definitely very lucky when...

In light of the recent events in Manchester, my home university city, it feels wrong not to mention it here as a precursor to this week’s blog. Manchester is a brave and fiercely proud city, and will carry on through this difficult time with kindness and everything that makes me proud to call it...

Before my time abroad, I only dreamt of pastries and breads and sweets, The beautiful taste of rich yet delicate cake slices, And pastries crumbling, ruining my lipstick, ruining my diet, Ruining my waistline A delicious baguette, Crumbs all over the kitchen side, cheese and balsamic adorn it, Tomatoes...

After a month back home with family after finishing in France, I landed into Freiburg on Sunday and since then have been trying my best to get myself settled in to my new flat and have been battling the horrors of German university administration. Becoming a new Erasmus student here has seemed like an...

Everything is the same… but you’re different Forgive me for the clichéd title but after a well-anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed week at home I have had some time to reflect on certain things. Britain will always be home to me. Fish and chips at the seaside, weekends spent drinking...
