I Walked Across the Globe…

That’s right guys, I really have walked across the globe. It was exhausting and both mentally and physically challenging, but I managed it.

My Greek Getaway: Syros

Hello and welcome to the first edition of ‘I miss my holiday and want to go back’. Now that I am officially home in the UK, I’m wondering if that would be a more apt name for this blog post. But for the sake of consistency, and my love for alliteration, I’ve decided to stick with My…

My Honest Opinion on French University

How to travel for less

When it comes to saving the pennies and going away, unfortunately, we usually have to make a choice between the two. The fact is that the words budgeting and holiday just don’t normally fit into the same sentence, as much as we wish that they did. Since coming on my year abroad, I have been…
