Giving Blood

My first decision I made when arriving back in the UK was to help others in any way I can, and with that I registered with Anthony Nolan and as an organ donor. I then thought that even though this was going to be helpful (I’m hoping), it wasn’t something that would happen straight away,…

My Favourite Adventure

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved going to the zoo, I love animals and can spend hours just looking at them. My favourite place to visit is Yorkshire Wildlife Park, for one reason – the polar bears. I love polar bears. If I could I would spend all day just watching them,…

The Amsterdam Adventure

At the start of December I planned a mini cruise with my Best Friend to Amsterdam, somewhere I had always wanted to go but didn’t know what to expect. So, firstly I should mention that we went with P&O on a mini cruise, for £48 each we had a discounted upgrade for an outside cabin…

LLM International Law and Global Justice

So, the serious part.. In September I enrolled at the University of Sheffield to study an LLM, on the International Law and Global Justice pathway. I always get asked why.. why did I decide to go back to University? Why did I choose to do a masters when it won’t get me anywhere? why Sheffield?…

The Shop That Must Not Be Named

On an outing to York we stumbled across this beauty of a shop. I must admit I am a huge Harry Potter fan and didn’t care about the ever growing queue outside the store I just had to go in. I had heard about the shop that must not be named in the city before…

Being back home

Alright, I’m not going to lie, being back home has messed up my wordpress, I haven’t published anything in quite a while and I’m hoping to change that. Starting from today I’m hoping to post new topics at least once a week. But honestly some may be boring, I’ve started my masters in International Law…

My last article

From Balkan Beats, 18th edition “A stadium built of marble, a great history inside. The venue for a number of sporting events and concerts, the Panathenaic stadium is definitely a place to visit! Also known as Kallimarmaro, which roughly translates to “beautiful marble”, the stadium sits in the centre of Athens. A tourist attraction that…

The list

So, to anyone who has taken time out of their lives to read my posts, first of all thanks! But more relevantly, you may have noticed I’ve had a few problems here. EVS isn’t for everyone, and I made a list for mentor of the issues I have here: I’m tired of having nothing to…

Top of the hill..

This experience in Thessaloniki has been a whirlwind, I’ve been happy, sad, angry, drunk and everything in between. But whilst being here I’ve had so much exercise because of where we live and where the office is. Our house is on top of a hill and the office is on the top of another hill….

Kalispera..

I’ve been in the city 8 months and yet I only know how to pronounce the basic Greek words and phrases.. I can order you beer and count to ten, I can have a small conversation with the man in the supermarket, I can tell you what date it is.. but that’s as limited as…

Snow in Greece?!

It’s funny because when I first came to Greece my mum told me “don’t take thick clothes, you’re going to Greece why would you need jumpers?!” hahahah mum, thanks. So it’s true that when I landed I definitely did not need a jumper, I got on the plane at Manchester airport and it was six…

A little bit more personal..

So, as I mentioned in my previous post, this guy I had a food fight with.. the guy who annoys me so much, the guy who calls me stupid names and sends weird drunk photos all the time, the guy who, even when I’ve been at the other side of the world still put up…
