Before I left for Canada, everyone told me how I have to go to Vancouver, “it’s a city close to nature! There’s nothing like it!” Well funnily enough, those of you who have been keeping up with my blog for a while will know that I don’t live too far away from Bristol, a city that is close to nature. So, I didn’t love Vancouver as much as I thought I would but I still really liked it, I know I’ve just contradicted myself hugely but I’m sure you get what I mean. I also loved Vancouver because of the people I met there, and I’m confident when I say that I think we’ll be friends forever. Anyway more on that later… Let me start from the beginning.
Have you ever stayed in a city for a couple of days and then left feeling ever so slightly guilty because you may have kinda rushed through it in order to stick to your jam packed itinerary? But then as you slowly roll away from the city, you think to yourself, ‘you know what? It’s okay, one day I’ll come back and visit properly and see everything.’ You then sit back in your comfy seat, let the guilt wash over and watch the city quickly fade into the distance. Out of sight out of mind, right? Then, as you finish making those vows to return, your mind turns over to the really important things, like, your next destination. Another place that you’ll be spending two or three nights in before quickly moving on.
It’s been three months but I’m finally back! My last assessment has been submitted and (assuming that I have passed)* I am well on the way to finishing my undergraduate degree. It seems slightly surreal to have so much free time after three years of continuous work. However, this leaves me with more time to work on this blog of which I have abandoned for the past year. I think I’m going to dedicate this first post on updating you all on what I’ve been up to this year so far. This year has already brought so many adventures and I’m so excited to catch you up and tell you what I’ve got planned for the rest of 2016.
Well hello there!
I can’t believe it’s been over three months since I posted it on this blog, but I’m hoping you still have some vague memory of this face. Believe it or not it was one of my New Year’s resolutions to try and keep up with doing a post a week. But I have discovered that time flies even when you’re not having fun. And I definitely owe you an explanation for my absence from the blogosphere.
Many of you will have already heard about the traumatic terrorist attacks that occurred last night in Paris.
Another academic year over… I was so focused on exams that I didn’t have time to digest the fact that my penultimate year of university was ending! To be honest, I’m not too sure how I feel about it yet. The past 9 months have dragged painfully slowly whilst flying by at the speed of light, I know, doesn’t really make much sense but I know what I mean! It feels like just yesterday that I was landing in Heathrow airport after 6 weeks in Thailand with my best friend.
