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. The modern mixed with the new is something so beautifully well done that until you consciously make note of it, it's easy to let it slip by. Take the street … Continue reading Doorway to Menorca

Because … Continue reading What am I doing?

Like with everything I had my hesitations, I was the only one attending from England/Menorca and there were 26 people from all over the world gathering … Continue reading Training me to travel?
Even when I was a child, travelling was always a big part of my life. I lived 3 hours or so away from any other family members, meaning that every weekend I had to face the perilous journey down the motorway. Combine this with violent travel sickness and you have the journey from hell. I … Continue reading Travel with confidence
I am feeling optimistic. It is the end of my second week and I am feeling optimistic. I started working this week, not only am I working in the most beautiful building in the world but the work itself is hard, tiring and completely worth it. Working with children is definitely hard work, but working … Continue reading This is my home now
I planned on starting this blog a very long time ago, before I travelled to Africa and definitely before I moved my life over to Spain. But things happened, life got too crazy and I simply didn't have the time. But I'm in Spain now and finally I have a bit of time to myself. … Continue reading Very first steps
