Leaving A Life Behind: Saying goodbye to Exeter after 4 years.

I’ve always prided myself for my cold, cold heart. I’m not one for heart-felt goodbyes and am a firm believer that you will make friends wherever you are in life. I have a few special friends from each period of my life so far, however I know they will always be there. I’ve never been […]

Returning to Familiarity – Portugal

I have never been able to understand why people return to the same holiday destination year on year; whether it be because of a second home or a love for a particular country or region. I think I have just always thought – ‘what about the rest of the world?!’ . Once again however I […]

Danger on Holiday

24th June 2016 – A Day That Will Change History.Β 

My second day in Majorca has been overshadowed by fear, panic and disappointment. Today, on 24th June 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union and took with it every shred of national identity I possessed.
