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...

With only a few weeks left of your wonderful Erasmus experience and with the whole student body stressing over their exams, you’ll find that certain things can be easily looked over. However, this is not to say that just because your time abroad is ending (for now), you can’t still enjoy...

After moving back from Spain, I went away a day later to Greece. It was super hectic moving back with all my luggage, and desperately trying to make everything fit despite having thrown out so many things, so it was nice to have a chance to relax and visit another country. Now it's back to reality though,...

I’m sure that you’re all familiar, by this point in your year abroad, with good and bad language days being a real and tangible struggle that can strike at any given moment. One minute you can be speaking perfect French, then switch to German and forget every word you’ve ever learnt...

Charles Darwin once said, “The love of all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man”. Witnessing animals in their natural habitats is, perhaps, one of the most fulfilling experiences a person can have whilst abroad. Southeast Asia boasts some of the most exotic and diverse wildlifeon...

The end of my Spanish year abroad as an English language assistant is nearly here, and I can’t quite believe it. Where have the last nine months gone? It seems just a few weeks ago when I left my mum crying her eyes out on the train platform in Wolverhampton, hopped on the plane filled with nerves...

It still hasn’t sunk in yet but last week I finished uni forever! No more education, no more writing essays, revising for exams or trying to figure out how to Harvard reference.  The past few months have been a very stressful period for me, and it can often be easy to forget how far you’ve...
