Nerja (+ Malaga) week 3

Tuesday: Crikey. I spent today warding off period cramps, which is not something I usually have trouble with. After battling exhaustion for the last few days, I finally succumbed and barely left the house all day, apart from to fetch pads, crisps and a chocolate bar. Have you ever seen a more stereotypical bunch of [...]

Low-waste travel essentials

1. Reusable cutlery, container and bags No journey is complete without a cheeky food stop on the go...but polystyrene and plastic takeout containers and single-use, splintering cutlery is no good for anyone, especially the environment! You can’t always guarantee that a company will happily put their food in your own container, but it’s no extra [...]

Week 2 in Nerja

Tuesday: Two things. 1) I’m an absolute sucker for new clothes and 2) my wardrobe might survive a summer in England but it is NO match for Spain, meaning I need more tops. Thankfully, #secondhandseptember was saved by the wonderful Nerja market and it’s jumble stalls, selling all kinds of clothing for <5€. We pored [...]

7 tips for new A level students

Nerja week 1

I’m super lucky to be visiting the Spanish town of Nerja, near Malaga, for 3 weeks, and I’m going to write a blog post for each week! We flew out at 5pm on Tuesday, a little later than anticipated, so my first test was ringing the transfer company to make sure that the taxi would [...]

Salamanca

A couple hour’s drive west of Madrid lies one of my favourite cities ever, Salamanca. With two cathedrals over 500 years old, the House of Shells and beautiful sandstone buildings, it’s a beautiful place steeped in history. I first visited with my school Spanish class in February 2018, when we stayed with host families and [...]

Hello again! Today I'm giving you the 5 changes that are on my personal To Do list in order to be more environmentally friendly, that I haven't yet achieved for various reasons. Period supplies I too am burdened with the struggles of continuing to be un-pregnant...and if that's something I have to put up with [...]

“What next?”

If I had £1 for every time someone asked me this question I wouldn't need a student loan. Honestly. Hello everyone! As I've mentioned previously, I was an A Level student until mid June when I finished exams, and on top of the crushing stress for revising, we also had to figure out our next [...]

My travel bucket list

The challenge of starting a travel blog is that there’s not much to blog about when not travelling. Sorry to state the obvious. But I think one of the best parts about exploring the world is actually the anticipation, and I personally am filled with excitement when reading my current travel bucket list. If anyone [...]

Going plastic free: a novice’s tale

The debate on protecting the environment has been ongoing for decades, but recently it’s definitely escalated. Young people especially are more and more aware of the dangers we face if we continue living the way we do, and recently I decided enough was enough; I need to do more. We’ve always recycled in my home [...]
