If you cast your mind back to the start of this little blog, I used to do a lot of ‘My Weekend in Photographs’ posts. At the time, I used to love those posts, but nowadays I am enjoying writing a lot more. Maybe because my life is a little more exciting now and I have a bit more to tell you every week! As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently found a tonne of photos that I have taken on my GoPro since being here, that I hadn’t really looked at yet. Some of them are really…

I was/am really proud of my last ’48 Hours’ post. As you can probably tell, by the fact that I have decided to write another one. Like I mentioned in my previous post (here), this weekend I finally got to see Luke for the first time since arriving in Spain. It was a short, but very sweet 48 hours in one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever visited. So, why not write about it? Seville is one of those places which is always busy.

I have had the best time so far on my year abroad. Of course there have been hiccups, but I have dealt with them so much better than I thought I would and overall, I am at least 10x more comfortable living in Spain than I originally thought possible.

‘There won’t be anymore travel posts for a while‘, she said. I lied.

I am a planner, I like to organise. But, not wanting to have nothing to do on a sunny Saturday, I agreed.…

I had previously half-written this post, and titled it ‘Pre Year Abroad Anxiety Part Two’, to follow on from this post here. However, we are one week in to my year abroad now so that wouldn’t quite be the case anymore! It wasn’t my plan to take such a long break from blogging whilst moving, but life recently has been a lot busier than I expected, and I am just now starting to catch up. I am still in the process of working out things like wifi and bank accounts, all the not-so-fun, grown up things that you have to…
