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...

From the moment you start learning a foreign language you are repeatedly told that the key to success is immersion. This is why all language students wait patiently for their year abroad in hope, (praying) that everything will slowly come together. There is no doubt that living in the target country...

To embark upon a year abroad it has become quite evident to me you that you need to be a certain type of person, and in my eyes, one of these key characteristics is open-minded. You never know what situation you may end up in, with what people and how being in a different country can change your perspective...

Based on my experience and conversations I've had with others, here are some reason...

Since starting my year abroad I have gained a completely new attitude to travelling. In the past I considered holidays to be something that I needed to plan months in advance. Whereas now I have a much more spontaneous and open minded perspective. As I said in a previous post, one of my New Year's resolutions...
