Today it is exactly ten days since I moved to the south of France. Time is flying already! Avignon is beautiful. I’m very lucky to have the unique opportunity to spend seven months in France, but I’m double lucky to be somewhere as nice as where I am.
 Avignon is bigger than expected,...

Ciao a tutti! About 6 weeks have passed now since I moved to Italy, which has given me considerable time to get used to the so-called ‘dolce vita’. However,  one considerable presumption and seeming relatively large misconception I made when embarking upon my year abroad was that Italy,...

Bonjour! I’m beginning my fourth week as an Erasmus student here at Limoges University and I’m just starting to feel settled here- I’ve sorted my timetable after a plethora of scheduling problems, joined the local gym, began to discover the city and its many restaurants, shops and...
