Bonjour! Just under 2 weeks and I’ll have moved to Cologne. Last minute preparations are majorly stressing me out (don’t ask me how many to do lists I have), but at least my inner millennial is glad she’ll finally have something new to post on Instagram. Anyway. I thought I’d...

After enjoying a short but sweet break back a home over Christmas, it has now been over one month since I touched down in Madrid to embark upon the second part of my year abroad, where I will be teaching English for the next 6 months.

Salut! Long time no blog. It’s been just over a month since I’ve been back home from Lyon, and it’s definitely good to be back. After not being home for a solid 4 months, it was quite hard to settle back in again after such a long while. Also, for the first few weeks I would accidentally...

Therefore, you can imagine my relief when a colleague from school contacted me to advertise that she rented an apartment in the city centre....

Home for Christmas Two weeks spent visiting family and friends, catching up at home and fully indulging in takeaways and television, also known as the epitome of British culture, and I am now back and settled into my routine in Spain. Of course when away, you miss the people back at home, but I surprised...
