It’s now beginning to dawn on me that I have just over two weeks left of my time here in Italy! Where have those 5 months gone? So as I’m finishing final language assessments, work projects and Erasmus documentation I thought I would reflect a bit on my time in Pisa.  As much as it...

Bonjour! First of all, I apologise for the awful pun in the title. It had to be done. I only have just over 2 weeks left of my first Erasmus semester in Lyon before I go back home to Birmingham for Christmas. I have been here for nearly 4 months now, which rather a long time but it has actually gone...

Come prepared It is very easy to assume that you can access all the same goods when living abroad. Well, think again. In many countries basic medication, like painkillers, can be purchased for next to nothing. However, in Italy you can pay anything up to €10 for a small packet of paracetamol. Secondly,...

For me, one of the highlights of my time in Italy has been travelling around; working 5 days a week mean I quite literally live for my weekends off, often jumping on a train straight from work on a Friday afternoon. Italy is such a diverse country with endless places to visit and recommendations, it...

                  Now the weather has turned, our hobbies have certainly changed. Four months ago we might have thrown an impromptu barbeque, but tonight our only plans include sitting in front of the TV, watching I’m a Celeb and inhaling the...

On Sunday the 26th of this month, I will have been in Avignon for two months. That means it's two months since I was home, since I saw my family and my dog and my boyfriend. In all the pre-year abroad departure days, one of the things that was stressed to us was how quickly the time will pass when you...

I can’t believe I only have 16 days left until my first placement is finished! It has been an intense three months that has really forced me out of my comfort zone. Whilst I’m still here I think it would be nice to write a bit about the more challenging elements of my time on the animal sanctuary...

Bonjour! Believe it or not, I only have just over a month left of studying in Lyon. To say it has flown by would definitely be an understatement. Over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to tick off some of the places I want to travel to whilst here, mainly when I had the week off university for...
