So hello again after nine months of abandoning this blog (ashamed face) ☻ but it was with good reason! From February last year I have been travelling as I am so lucky to have had the chance to go abroad for two semesters with my University. YAY!
From February to June 2012 I had the most amazing opportunity to work with an awesome, hardworking company in Spain called Grupos Organizados! I was part of a team that welcomed spanish students from all over Spain and teach them English through loads of cool activities such as Kayaking and beach games, song & dance, hiking up and down hills to the nearest village for some shopping and so much more!! I am so happy I have photos such as these to share with people I meet and talk about the amazing time I spent there! I would go back in a heartbeat!!

Looking at all of these photos and so many more bring back
amazing memories and I actually would go back and do it all again tomorrow!
I miss having a natural tan and being so fit from early morning trekking up hills to breakfast. Without a doubt my best life experience to date & no doubt I will be back this summer!!
For my second semester abroad, Erasmus or study abroad for me as I went all the way to CHICAGO!! My dream for so long was to visit America and it was such a milestone for me to have visited such a diverse city, although overcoming homesickness was extremely difficult for me, and leaving my boyfriend for 4 MONTHS is the hardest thing I've ever done,
I do not regret my decision as I have learned so much from this experience, a very daunting one but amazing still!!
These pictures will pretty much sum up four months of my stay in Chicago :)
|Stunning view from the Sears tower, we picked such a good day to visit as the views|
are so much prettier when the sun is shining!! ☼
|Shitting our pants on the ledge of the Sears tower!!|

|Also let my hair grow out for the full 4 months which made|
it so healthy after the sun damage from Espana!
|Christmas parade with Mickey & Minnie!!|

Its safe to say I had one of my most memorable years in 2012 and I would not change it for the world!!
