I’m a bit late writing this blog post, in fact I started writing this about a month ago. Safe to say it’s been a busy one. Last month I went to Seville to meet up with a couple of my friends from uni who are also in Spain this year. I see Amy quite a … Continue reading Seville Round 2
For the last month or so I’ve been trying to find a summer internship in France for the summer. Admittedly, I didn’t try too hard, because I’m lazy and applying for adult things scares me. So I was totally surprised when I got an interview for a receptionist job in a hotel. The interview was … Continue reading I’m going to Paris!

One by one I’m ticking off the cities in Spain, aiming to have seen and … Continue reading Weekends
