My time at Leicester

I am sad to say that this will be my last ever blog! I hope I have achieved what I set out to do which was “to familiarise you with uni life and to demonstrate how actually it can be pretty fun!” I also hope that you have enjoyed reading my blogs as much as […]

My Leicester Bucket List 2

On my last blog I left you guys with a list of things that I wanted to do in Leicester. I have since done some of these things but unfortunately I have broken my ankle which is preventing me from completing the list! However, I thought I would feed back to you guys what I […]

My Leicester bucket list

Now that we are nearing the end of exams I’ve been giving some more thought to my Leicester bucket list. I had the idea to come up with a bucket list of things I wanted to do in Leicester before I left a while ago. Although I can come back to Leicester it will never […]

Ancient Greek sites

Ancient Greek sites

I thought I would share with you all some pictures of some Ancient Greek sites. I was fortunate enough to visit these sites just before I came to uni and I would recommend seeing all of them (if possible:))! It was nice to visit the places I had been reading about.
