Honestly, can’t believe I just wrote that sentence, it’s insane how quickly the past few months have gone! Everyone is slowly realising that this awesome year is coming to an end and there are a lot of mixed emotions about it. I’m sure you’re all aware of how much I’ve loved this year abroad experience, so I thought I’d dedicate this blog post to a few of my fellow year abroaders living with me over here in Canada.

Top 5 Moments in Salamanca

Leave a comment Image

As my time in Salamanca comes to an end, it’s time to look back on the blissful highs and hilariously tragic lows of my first semester abroad in Spain. Exams, losing just a few of my personal belongings, frustration at Spanish bureaucracy, language barriers and homesickness aside, the innumerable highlights by far outweigh the lows. Since there were so many memories to choose from, I decided to pick moments and trips I hadn’t mentioned in previous posts! Continue reading

Blog #12: Don’t Just Take My Word For It!

Leave a comment Standard

Having been back in England now for about a month I’m slowly getting back into the swing of English life. It seems surreal that I spent an entire year not being able to read anything in English! Maybe it means I don’t take it for granted anymore!

Anyway, I thought I should round off with some bits and pieces about where you can get more information! Continue reading

Lessons learned

Oh my gosh, where did it all go, how is my Erasmus year already over?

I’ve just arrived back to the UK and it is bizarre to be back.

My year at Heidelberg university has been the best year of my life – and I consider myself to have had a rather good life so far!  So the fact that it’s suddenly over feels strange.  Very strange.  I don’t have any regrets, but the realisation that myself and all these wonderful people I’ve met over the last 11 months won’t ever be in the same place again is difficult to process.

Blog #11: Summary

Leave a comment Standard

It might not be very summery but it is a time for a summary! I’ve had the most amazing year in Aarhus, studying, occasionally partying, and learning about culture. I have experienced first hand an entirely fresh Scandinavian way of life, as well as pockets of life from from friendships made with people from France, Canada, the United States, Belgium, Australia…, and on.

The End of an Era

Leave a comment Standard

 

I remember when I first arrived in Dublin. It was similar to home, yet different. Now I can undoubtedly say it is a home away from home, and I have every intention of returning. Looking back it is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I would advise anybody considering a year abroad to go for it. It’s a whole new experience, no matter where you go.

Returning home has made me realise just how fast this year has gone, I already miss the city, the university and the company! I would say the best part of the whole experience has been meeting people the people I met, literally from all across the globe. It’s crazy how this one common thing- studying away from your home country- can bring two people from opposite sides of the world together!

The sole decision of taking up this year abroad has lead me to plan a very exciting summer, a lot of which will be spent travelling. It’s like the domino effect. One great decision can affect your whole life. Do it- you will not regret it.

That’s all from me…

I wish you all the best. Good luck!
