Year Abroad / Guess who’s back?

Hola todos! As you may have guessed from the title, I'm now officially back in Spain. I didn't blog over the Christmas period, not for lack of want but simply because I had no time at all.

Year Abroad / North and South

Hola cariños! The last couple of weekends have been busy for me here in España. It's been a few months since I saw most of my course friends; I haven't seen some of them since May!

Year Abroad / Surviving my first week

Hola todos! Let the year abroad blogging commence. It's official: I've been in Zaragoza for a week now. A WEEK. It seems time really does fly when you're having fun/panicking over living in a foreign country/being a tourist in your new home town. I won't lie, I was absolutely petrified about moving here and ended… Continue reading Year Abroad / Surviving my first week

Year Abroad / Feeling sentimental about home

I was up late one night recently contemplating my move to Spain and ended up making a list of all the things that popped in to my head that I am going to miss when I actually go. Prepare yourselves, folks: (In no particular order, of course) My (now old) job and the wonderful people… Continue reading Year Abroad / Feeling sentimental about home
