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. It is definitely much more packed during the summer but even now, in…

‘There won’t be anymore travel posts for a while‘, she said. I lied. On Friday night, whilst debating whether or not we fancied going out for a drink, my housemate mentioned the possibility of travelling to Seville the following day, for a day trip.

I have been in Spain for 1 very busy month now, and it has gone by in a whirlwind. We have well and truly filled our time here, and we are only just starting to slow down. If you have read my last few year abroad posts, you will know that I have done a fair bit of travelling so far. However, since coming back from Barcelona, exploring and travelling has had to take a bit of a back seat whilst I recover from a pretty nasty cold/flu. For the last ten days, I have spent much more time napping…

This weekend was one of a few firsts, which have left me feeling pretty damn proud of myself, if I’m completely honest with you. Firstly, on Thursday, I went canyoning. We travelled to Ronda, one of the prettiest towns I have ever seen, into the canyons and abseiled, climbed and travelled through some seriously rocky rivers. I was terrified, but I did it, and I actually enjoyed it. Hazel 1, fear of being out of control, 0. Next up was travelling solo for the first time. I usually hate flying; I hate the business and urgency of airports, I hate…
