Hello from Australia 🙂 It has almost been two months since I arrived in Australia and it has definitely gone by F-A-S-T. Even though I’m currently buried under piles of books and assignments, let me tell you that I’m having the time of my life over here. I’m really excited to say that I’ve… Continue reading What Have I Been Up To??
Hello everyone! My name is Lydia, you may have seen my posts on this blog before but let me just spoil the illusion a little.

Today is Thursday and it’s already the end of my working week. Nope, I haven’t quit or been fired, apparently that’s just how it works so I’m now in the not unpleasant situation of having 6 days off! The law in France states that an adult can work a maximum of 35 hours per week… Continue reading A (half)week of children and language barriers

I’m panicking, there’s no other word for it. But in true… Continue reading Playing at Being a Grown-up

That having been said, it is also the end to my second week here in Bordeaux. If this… Continue reading I may have pickled myself: a story of wine, late nights and delicious food
Going to America for my study abroad was the highlight for my undergraduate years here. It was a great experience and I made a lot of new friends, learnt so much about the culture and people there, and came back a much more confident person. It is something I would recommend to everyone! You… Continue reading Why Study Abroad??
