Finally, I went to Madrid! This city has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. I was continually put off by how expensive it was to actually get there from Seville, it’s about 120€ on the train and about the same to fly. But, last week, I bit the bullet […]Read more "Madrid / A Weekend In The Capital"
It’s Feria week in Sevilla and it would have been incredibly rude if I didn’t pay it a visit or two, especially considering it’s very close to my house too.

Let’s look at the […]Read more "ERASMUS / How to make the most of it and does it really help?"
I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to write this blog post. I suppose because I’m so hesitant to write negative things about the places that I’ve visited because each city has its own charm, and every city isn’t for everyone. And of course, trips to cities and your impression of them depend […]Read more "Lisboa / A love – hate relationship"
Day 2 (well, technically 3 but I’m not counting Friday as a day) had a very very relaxed start. After a full day of sightseeing on Saturday and then getting home slightly tipsy the night before, we were really in no rush. We took a short walk to a cute little cafe/restaurant round the corner […]Read more "A weekend in Berlin / Part 2"
