I realised a little while ago that I am always sharing my travel stories and pictures but not once on this blog have I shared a post about my life in Frankfurt. That’s actually a mild lie, I posted one about graffiti but that’s not even the tip of the iceberg, nor is that showing off any of the impressive things about the city I currently call home.
The picture featured above is the view from the Observation Tower, something that is best visited in summer (it’s ridiculously high and windy up there) and perfectly shows the contrast of – Continue Reading »
This week is the first in over 6 months where I haven’t written a post every week day and it’s been absolutely glorious. I love to write and share things on this little space, however, other things have needed my attention this week and it’s been a relief to find if I leave my blog unattended, it doesn’t die or become a black hole of nothing.
Dan and I are working on something HUGE that could be around the corner for us and it is taking up all my time and resources in research, work and planning. Some of – Continue Reading »
Since we’ve been exploring our living options again for later this year, it’s made me come to appreciate how fortunate we are being Europeans and British passport holders. Our situation could be a lot worse than what it is and this week I am trying to focus on the negatives instead of the positives for if we were to stay in Europe. Considering we have a lot less time to make a plan for our futures now (I said last week it was 5 months but it’s more like 3 month of actual planning time) I feel very fortunate – Continue Reading »
If I am being honest, I am pretty stressed out. In fact, I’m not pretty stressed out… I am massively stressed out.
We have found out that we may not be able move to (and work in) South Korea in August as we had been advised due to their government recently tightening requirements for a visa. In a nutshell, this sucks. We have 5 months until we were due to leave, have already given notice in at our jobs and I’m a little ashamed to admit, we didn’t have a back up plan. I would like to take this time – Continue Reading »
P.s. You get bonus points for figuring out which (amazing) song I am quoting here.
In December I spent quite a bit of time devoted to discussing feminism and how I didn’t realise I was a feminist until a reader pointed it out. This lead me to focus more and more on what feminism means to me as I was also embarrassed to be labeled a feminist at first. Of course, this was very narrow minded of me but I couldn’t help think “aren’t they all man hating bra burners?”. You may laugh (or be – Continue Reading »
I’ve been creating blog designs since September of last year and although I am still very new to working with clients, I am not new to web design. However, working with clients on their designs is an entirely different ball game to creating your own, as most blog designers will tell you, it’s something as a client that you should keep in mind. Today I wanted to share some things I’ve learnt since working with clients to help you guys to provide your blog designer with what they need to create a blog design you’ll love.
After moving to Versailles in France, I had spent the first week familiarising myself with the family and my local area. However, seeing as Paris was just a train journey away how could I resist staying away any longer? On my first official weekend in France I took myself off to Paris for a day of exploration. Admittedly, I was very nervous as Dan and I hadn’t long been broke up and it was my first time traveling & exploring on my own. Of course, the move to France in itself had been scary but the idea of visiting a – Continue Reading »
It is no secret to my family and close friends that since I was a child all I wanted was to be a writer. It was the kind of pipe dream I held on to until I was about 14 years old and boys came into the picture. From that point it was boys, hair, make-up and friends that I consumed my life with and so I began down the path of ‘I don’t know what to do with my life’. However, secretly I still clung to this idea that I could be a writer.
Being an au pair is a fantastic opportunity to see the world whilst getting paid and having a roof over your head. It’s also great for throwing yourself into the culture of your chosen country as you will most likely live with a native family, take language classes and live in a residential area. Being an au pair is a job I have found to be very rewarding during my time traveling Europe, however, it’s also been restrictive, frustrating, emotional and hard work. I’m going to give you an honest and accurate low down on how to become an au – Continue Reading »
