Erasmus 3 – Language barriers? What’s that?

It’s official.   I’ve spoken more English than Spanish and I’ve only been here for 28 hours.   How is that possible?   I am hoping that will change as soon as classes start. Spending a good portion of my day on the shopping centre probably didn’t help my case as most stores require their […]

Erasmus 2 – Arrival

  It’s happening.   Today, my journey has finally started; It’s the start of the rest the year.   It’s Erasmus.   As I left the plane, I was greeted by Madrid’s sunny weather which helped put a smile on my otherwise tired face. You see, it all started earlier this morning when I missed […]

Last Friday we went to a restaurant just round the corner from the apartment I’ve been renting for the past 5 months in Avignon. I’ve seen this particular restaurant many times on my way to and from uni. It’s painted a dark purple and over the door in gothic gold letters it states: “Le Bistrot […]
