Autumn In Europe: My Top 11 Places To Explore This Season!

Whenever someone asks me what my favourite season is, I always say Spring as it’s vibrant, it’s hopeful and it’s the start to a really great couple of months. But if we’re being honest, Autumn is my absolute guilty pleasure. Talking about it with new people is similar to when I talk about trashy TV with new people that I want to impress… I’ll turn my nose up slightly and pretend that I don’t really care for it because IRead more

10 Situations That Will Make Any Traveller Want To Scream “Why Though?!”

  As told with Gifs and rage… 1. When an airline has tons of early morning flights and only 2 check in desks open. 2. When someone in your dorm room in your Hostel gets up at ridiculous O’clock for their flight and hasn’t packed the night before and so ensues the never ending rustling of plastic bags. 3. You get chatting to the standard travel boaster wanker when you’re a couple of drinks deep and really not in theRead more

A Countdown Of My 7 Most Ridiculous Memories Abroad

Every time I tell people stories, I am normally met with “only you, Lizzie”. I’m often getting myself into bizarre situations that my friends look forward to hearing about. In fact, only yesterday one of my friends described me as having a likelihood to Shosh from Girls by saying “if we were at a party, you would accidentally smoke crack & take your skirt off and I wouldn’t bat an eye” – Don’t worry though Mum, I’ve never smoked crack, accidentally orRead more

Every girl should experience attending a Music Festival with a bunch of her best friends, where you can swap baby wipes when one of you gets a little too covered in mud.

Paris: I’m Sorry, But I Just Don’t Get It!

Paris is a City famous for love & art. A place where you will lose sense of time completely, leaving nothing but you and Paris. I’m sorry, but no. No, no, no! All the movies, songs, TV shows & even blog posts lied to me about Paris. One of my earliest memories of wanting to visit the City was when I watched the Mary-Kate and Ashley classic “Passport to Paris” as a kid. In true Mary-Kate and Ashley fashion, theRead more

10 Signs You’ve Been Living In Spain For Too Long.

1) You’ve forgotten what personal space is or how to give it to anyone. In England we don’t really adhere to showing affection. Good friends of ours might receive a kiss and a cuddle but if we aren’t that close than stay the hell back and give us a simple nod or a handshake. Maybe not even the handshake though, that’s quite a prolonged amount of physical contact going on. After a while of living in Spain your barriers will beRead more

But in actual fact, the hours worked next to the disgustingly low pay rates makes me want to vomit.  Unlike other teachers, TEFL teachers are often paid by the hour and thus all the additional hours of the week that go into planning and marking aren’t subsidised by a lovelyRead more
