Ciao! (Please excuse the mandatory and exceptionally cringe greeting) My name is Ellie and I am in my third year at the University of Edinburgh studying Spanish and Italian, which means that I have begun my compulsory year abroad. To start things off, I went to Peru for 5 weeks of volunteering, something...

A couple of weeks ago I decided to visit some friends of mine from semester 1 in Lyon. This was all well and good until I came off a racing bike at 30mph whilst coming down a winding inclined road from the Fourviere mount. About a week later, after travelling around Europe by Flixbus in a flurry of Swiss...

I’ve been back at home from my year abroad in Madrid for nearly a week now, and it feels like I never actually left and that the past nine months in the Spanish capital was just a weird, rather long dream. Leaving Madrid was very difficult, and on reflection I rushed leaving - I flew back home...

With only a few weeks left of your wonderful Erasmus experience and with the whole student body stressing over their exams, you’ll find that certain things can be easily looked over. However, this is not to say that just because your time abroad is ending (for now), you can’t still enjoy...

After moving back from Spain, I went away a day later to Greece. It was super hectic moving back with all my luggage, and desperately trying to make everything fit despite having thrown out so many things, so it was nice to have a chance to relax and visit another country. Now it's back to reality though,...

I’m sure that you’re all familiar, by this point in your year abroad, with good and bad language days being a real and tangible struggle that can strike at any given moment. One minute you can be speaking perfect French, then switch to German and forget every word you’ve ever learnt...

It still hasn’t sunk in yet but last week I finished uni forever! No more education, no more writing essays, revising for exams or trying to figure out how to Harvard reference.  The past few months have been a very stressful period for me, and it can often be easy to forget how far you’ve...

Before going on my year abroad, my secret fear was that I would come back without the dramatic language advance that my tutors all promised me. Would there ever come a time where I wouldn’t forget to include the verb at the end of a convoluted sentence? How noticeable is it when I have to mumble...

I’ve finally finished university and I really can’t believe how fast the past four years have gone. However, it’s not quite over yet and I still have 2 essays, my dissertation and 7 exams to do before I can finally say adios to my university life. The four week Easter break will probably...

I don’t think I ever really felt homesick until my year abroad. I love my home but I always thought of myself as independent and loved travelling. But being abroad on your own and totally starting fresh for a whole year can eventually take its toll. There is nothing I don’t love about my...
