12 crazy days in London

Oh hello to all my 27 followers! How are we this afternoon ? I say afternoon because it’s currently 13.36 Colombian time and I’m on the first of my buses en route to Salento. This particular bus is taking 9 hours, and just like always, there’s some funny stories to go along with it –…

“Would you like a job selling hats on a market stall?”

… is the question I was asked when I walked past my Barista friend outside Milkaway – my go to Cappuchino hotspot. Well, absolutely! I would totally love a job in a market stall selling hats in a language I’m only just getting my head around was my response – I still haven’t heard back…

Love is love

I had written a different beginning to this post, however that was before my Doctor rang. Before I get into that, I need to extend some love and thanks to people who will (and most likely will not) read this, and it’s crucial I do this first. This doesn’t include all my other fantastic friends…

Happy World Mental Health Day

HAPPY WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY TO EVERYBODY. Who was the mastermind behind this day? Who decided we should dedicate 24 hours to our mental health? I extend my heart, my brain and a huge muchas gracias to this genius. I haven’t written for a little bit, mainly because I haven’t felt very well. Here’s the…

The Past, the Imperfect and the P.Perfect

In Spanish there’s three tenses to describe the past – maybe there’s more, but to be honest I had such a terrible lesson today that I’m just going to speak about the three I kind of know – also this article poses absolutely no relevance to the title, it’s a metaphor. Keep reading. There’s the…

In a world of Shelleys, BE A SHEILA

What? I hear you ask. Who is Shelley? Who is Sheila? WHY ARE YOU SPEAKING IN RIDDLES?! Well, I’ll tell you. But obviously, I’ll give you a bit of a background story first. So : My latest weekend was spent in a place called Tarifa. Now, how do I describe Tarifa? It’s really pretty, for…

Em in Sevilla: June 2018 VS September 2018

One thing I’m really enjoying and acknowledging by living here is the fact that day by day, it’s feeling like home. It’s been nearly two weeks and I feel like I’ve been here a lifetime. Why? Well. I know where the supermarkets are to buy cold coffee and I know where the really cool places…

Weekend vibes

This is my view where I’m currently sitting writing and listening to classical music belting out of someone’s open windows. That’s right, not Hip Hop, not Rap…CLASSICAL music…It’s sooooo relaxing 😎 Positives of yesterday: I had a great Spanish lesson. I went to the gym – which has marginally better men to stare over (instead…

Let’s talk about…CHOCOLATE

ME ENCANTA CHOCOLATE. I’m also a little scared of chocolate. Porque? Because, there was once a time I used to demolish chocolate like the cocoa trees (or beans or whatever it’s made of) were going out of business and chuck it up in the toilet. Remember I mentioned I had issues with control? Possibly deriving…

1 week in Sevilla – Anxiety doesn’t leave ya

A week living in Sevilla: So far? A totally crazy, awesome experience. I’ve explained that my host family don’t speak English, which at first was really overwhelming. Like I said, I’m not good without a routine.. I know people can be hopeless when they’re in new surroundings but it’s slightly different for me.. I end…
