Year Abroad / Sunshine, sea and sand

Hola, my lovelies. Last weekend myself and my chiquis went for a trip to San Sebastián, a town in the Basque Country in the north of Spain. For me, this trip was definitely something to look forward to, mainly as after 8 months living in Spain, I was finally going to the beach! I know,… Continue reading Year Abroad / Sunshine, sea and sand

Year Abroad / Reunions and new places

So in the space of a week or so, I was able to reunite with two of my favourite people. Firstly, a long bank holiday weekend away in Milan to visit my best friend Harriet, before a visit from the wonderful Verity - she travelled 7 hours by car to get to Zaragoza! That's what… Continue reading Year Abroad / Reunions and new places

Year Abroad / Exam season stress

It has been four years since I last sat a January exam, so of course, the last few weeks have been a bit of a shock to the system.

Year Abroad / Overcoming homesickness

Guess who's back again with another year abroad post? Yep, you guessed it. It's been over two months since I moved to Spain now and quite honestly, it has felt more like two years. I went home last month for a couple of days and for a while, I was absolutely fine, seeing friends, going… Continue reading Year Abroad / Overcoming homesickness

Year Abroad / The Sutherlands take Zaragoza

What better way to mark my being in Spain for a while than with a visit from my family? My mom obviously saw the city for a couple of days when she came out with me when I moved to make sure I settled in, but my dad and brother only had a few phone… Continue reading Year Abroad / The Sutherlands take Zaragoza
