As I draw towards the end of my year abroad, with only a few weeks left of finishing admin and assessments, I can’t help but reflect on the year as a whole. I feel so unbelievably lucky and grateful for the experiences I’ve had. From dancing on rooves in Avignon and being beaten down by a...

As morbid as the title may be, it doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s still true. The official Erasmus experience (for now) has ended and everyone has left. Some back home and some to experience other cultures. One thing that’s for sure is that Louvain-la-Neuve is a place that...

So today marks a week since I've been in South America. 3 flights, 2 trains, a 3 day strike, and a missed flight later, we're in Lima, Peru. In this post I'm going to talk a bit about the different places we've visited and our personal experience, without focussing too much on the touristy things you...

Working 5 days a week has meant I really do live for my weekends and I always try to make the most out of them! There are countless destinations you need to see in Italy and everyone has different experiences, opinions and advice especially if they have lived there - but these are some of the (mainly...

After a relaxing nine days at home after finishing my year abroad, I was back at the airport to board my next flight, which was much longer than my usual Birmingham to Madrid one. This time, I was on my way to the bustling Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. I was only on this side of the world for a fortnight,...

Basel Clinging onto the borders to France and Germany for dear life, the Swiss city of Basel is located an hour by regional train from Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany and about an hour east of Mulhouse, France. This vibrant city is jam packed full of art galleries and 15th century buildings leading to...

I only have one week left until I fly to South America for 3 weeks! One of my friends has spent her Year Abroad in Brazil, and so a group of us are all meeting up in Peru and travelling around there and Colombia. The route we’re doing we’ve organised ourselves, and we only have two days...

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...

Whilst living abroad allows you to experience a completely different culture and way of life, it can come with both positive and negative differences from the culture that you’re used to. The hardest thing I have had to deal with on my year abroad (an aspect I hadn’t expected nor been informed...
