The End. (Almost)

Having been back in the UK for nearly a month now and had my share of rain, curries and adventures with the boyfriend before he left to go back to Vancouver again, I am finally writing this post, sitting in my new room in Sheffield, preparing for my trip to Italy tomorrow.

After 11 months, 2 flats, 2 jobs, 5 countries, 10 flights, £14,000 countless train and bus journeys and more photos than I could ever upload, a month ago the end of my official year abroad arrived.

Well what can I say, it’s definitely been an incredible year with some amazing experiences – who thought I’d spend Easter in the Sahara Desert? Or would spend my first thanksgiving in France surrounded by people from across the world? Or even learn to use a computer properly? Or would see Lady GaGa and Beyonce in the same year in two different countries with my best friends? Or that I would get to visit some of the best cities in Europe in such a short space of time? Or that I’d convince Simon to love olives and red wine??

I have definitely learnt some life lessons out here and experienced more emotions than I thought possible, a lot of frustrating and miserable downs but a lot of ups to compensate.

I have met the most incredible people who have taught me so much and will hopefully be lifelong friends!

And best of all, I have learnt that me and you, Europe, we’re not done yet.

…See you tomorrow, Italy!
