Some may say that the best part of traveling is looking forward to the next trip! At times like these when we’re stuck indoors it definitely brings some comfort to plan our next travels. Here are some of the places I most want to visit, and how I plan on seeing them. 1. Central andContinue reading “My travel bucket list”

The trip of a lifetime: San Cristóbal Island won my heart

A quick note: I wrote this post day by day, so I had no idea that my week would change so drastically. I’m also writing on mobile, so excuse the formatting and I’ll edit it all when I get home. When you think of South America, what do you see? Is it the infamous dangerContinue reading “The trip of a lifetime: San Cristóbal Island won my heart”

A bit of introspection

As we were pulling weeds as part of our volunteer work this morning, Abe and I agreed that after only 24 hours on San Cristobal island, we love the place. He doesn’t think two weeks here will be enough. I reminded him that I only have one, and then we started planning how to maximiseContinue reading “A bit of introspection”

October Rewind

Sooooo October’s nearly over. Yeah that happened. How?? When?? Tomorrow will be Christmas, next week New Year and after that, Easter. What the hell. It’s been a short while since my last post and October has been such a busy month I thought it would be a nice idea to round all the simple stuffContinue reading “October Rewind”

Thoughts ~ slowing down

Make days off count. Pamper yourself. Learn to do nothing. Then learn to do nothing without feeling guilt. Then learn to schedule time for doing nothing. Listen to your body; it knows you best. There are times to override the urge to snooze, and there are times to skip the gym + sleep more. LearnContinue reading “Thoughts ~ slowing down”

Nerja week 3 – 24 hours in Malaga

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 ofContinue reading “Nerja week 3 – 24 hours in Malaga”

Week 2 in Nerja: party in the plaza and breakfast with a view

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 poredContinue reading “Week 2 in Nerja: party in the plaza and breakfast with a view”

Nerja week 1: falling in love with Andalusia

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 wouldContinue reading “Nerja week 1: falling in love with Andalusia”

How I spent two weeks studying in 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 andContinue reading “How I spent two weeks studying in Salamanca”
