Last weekend I celebrated a night out in Mahon with my flatmates. Drinks, a little dancing and attempts at socialising with drunken Spaniards. A typical evening here in Menorca. I chose to leave the party early at about midnight but that left me alone in a city I'd previously only visited during the day. I … Continue reading Stream of consciousness
Let me start this by wishing my mother a very very happy birthday! I wish I could be with you to celebrate this special day. Oh, wait. East Midlands airport? The M1? CADBURY CREME EGGS? This can only mean one thing. Hello England. Yes, I have decided to take a small break from my luxurious … Continue reading Home time
Easter? We're at Easter already? I haven't even had the opportunity to enjoy Christmas yet and now I'm making my debut performance as the Easter bunny?

It's Thursday once again which means one more week has gone by without me realising. I am not sure whether this is a good or a bad sign. Either way, here we are. This week I want to take you back in time two - four years to one of my all time favourite places on … Continue reading TBT: Austria
So I haven't had that much time to think recently. Time to think or time truly to myself. I know that I have the evenings where I curl up in bed and pretend that the next early morning isn't right around the corner, but for some reason this doesn't seem to motivate me to y'know, … Continue reading Catch up – What’s been going on?
If you regularly read my blogs then I'm sure by now you will have heard me mention travelling to Africa at some point. This week I want to focus on this opportunity because for me, this was my most life changing experience for multiple reasons. The first being that this was the first time I'd ever … Continue reading TBT: Zambia
I have never made a very good adult and considering that I'm only 19 it hasn't really been that big an issue until now, when I suddenly have to live alone, eat suitably and remember to wash my clothes. So I have decided to create this separate section for my blog as a bit of … Continue reading Disaster strikes
There's something about the raw beauty embedded into the buildings and monuments here in Menorca that keeps me feeling like I'm living in another era.
