Year Abroad / Hasta luego, España

I realise most people will be reading this post thinking 'wait, didn't you get home ages ago?!' Technically yes: I got home almost two weeks ago. I guess I've just been putting off writing this post for a while. I originally planned to write it while still in Spain and post it as my final… Continue reading Year Abroad / Hasta luego, España

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 / An overdue update

Hola chiquitos! Since my last post a lot of things have happened. Jack visited Zaragoza, I went home for Easter, spent a considerable amount of time at the doctors' and in airports, and last week I returned to Spain for my final ten weeks here. It's amazing how quickly the last (almost) 8 months have passed… Continue reading Year Abroad / An overdue update

Year Abroad / The 6 month mark

It's been over 6 months now since I hopped on that plane to Zaragoza and in some respects I honestly can't believe how quickly the time has gone! I'm almost halfway through my second semester here, Jack is visiting next week and I'm going home for Easter the week after. Perhaps time really does fly… Continue reading Year Abroad / The 6 month mark

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. I've become accustomed to forgetting everything in my first semester modules and revising like mad in April and May, so revising over Christmas was a very… Continue reading Year Abroad / Exam season stress

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. I spent a packed three weeks with my family, my grandparents, my boyfriend and some of my friends… Continue reading Year Abroad / Guess who’s back?

Year Abroad / Adjusting to new things

With a new month comes a new blog post... hola! I've been in Spain for almost a month now and since my last post I've managed to go on my first (and second) night out, register for classes at university, make plans for friends to visit and even make some new friends too. It's honestly… Continue reading Year Abroad / Adjusting to new things

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
