Off we go!!

Day 1 of our 134 day journey starts now! It’s been a manic few days planning routes, sorting out packing lists, banks etc etc but we’re finally in Heathrow airport, with a glass of wine in hand ready to go!!

Recently, on Instagram, I came across the hashtag #TravelWhereYouLive and it inspired me to write this blog post. I’m currently living at home in Buckinghamshire, England, dreaming about hiking in South America and food in Asia and cocktails on soft sandy beaches but I quite often forget to think about how nice it is to […]

NTU Graduation 2016

Anna the graduate… I know, not so much of a travel blog this one.  But I guess I’m taking it back to what I originally made this blog for: keeping my family in the loop of what I’m doing as they can’t follow me around like sheep! (…and they probably wouldn’t want to anyway!) As […]

Not so blue January! Notts, home and my first weeks back.

Last night mum and I worked out exactly when we’re going to fly! We’re leaving on Wednesday […]

So are you fluent?! No.

As a languages student I always, always get the same responses when I tell people what I study; 1) OMG so are you fluent?! 2) OMG speak some Spanish to me!! Both will get the response ‘no’.   The reason I’m going to Spain for the year is to become fluent and just because I can […]
