Home Comforts!

Hello Internet Peoples! How goes it? Well I hope! I know that some of you out there will be getting ready to move away for your Year Abroad, and so for the next few weeks, once a week, I’m going to do a YA themed blog post, covering a different aspect of moving away and…

That’s All, Folks!

As you’re reading this, I’m probably (hopefully!) about 36,000ft in the air, somewhere between Paris and Belfast, nose stuck in a book. I’m on my way home, for the very last time. That line was supposed to sound very cool, not quite so final and dark… :S I’m on my way home from France, for…

Paris Wednesdays: The One Where we almost Died…

Hello Internet Peoples! How’s it hanging? I hope if you’re reading this, you’re feeling smashing and splendid. I’m going to tell you about how a very simple, seemingly harmless trip to Paris turned into something… else. Something dangerous and scary but also life-alteringly hilarious. So if you like stories about people in danger on the…

Hellooooooooo Internet Peoples! Ca va? Today, I’m going to do my usual monthly update on my life here en France. February has been one of the BEST months yet; half term, holidays and home for a little bit were the highlights! View this post on Instagram Oh hey there Louvre!🔺 A post shared by Amber…

Ciao, Roma!

Hellllooooooooo Internet Peoples! What’s new? I hope that March is treating you well so far! Being  a language assistant isn’t always easy, which means that when half term comes along, you need to let your hair down, and treat yourself to a delightful holiday. Is that a convincing and justifiable reason for my having went…

OAP Saturdays: Paris

Hello Internet Peoples! I hope your Monday is going well and fabulously. I know mine as, seeing as three of my classes just got cancelled (I’m celebrating by sitting in bed, watching youtube videos and eating chocolate. Sheer class I am, you know yourself). So, Paris. Paris is too amazing and perfect, and when you…

OAP Saturdays: Pierrefonds

Hello Internet Peoples! If you study French, and you are doing a Year Abroad, I have no doubt that you’ve heard the word “profiter” a thousand times. Probably more. “Profiter” concerning your language, concerning work, concerning studying… but most importantly, concerning travelling. Living in Northern Ireland is flipping lovely at the best of times, but…

Janvier, 2016

Hellllllo Internet Peoples! I hope all is well since the last time I wrote. As I write this post, on a rather solitary Friday night (enhanced majorly by peeling the foil off the lid of a tin of lemon SanPellegrino), I am excited by the fact that I find myself at the start of a…

Does this make me look Dutch?

Hello Internet Peoples! I trust you’re feeling gelewdig* today! *(Today’s blog post has a Dutch theme. You’ll see why.) Today, I’m going to talk about my Amsterdam experiences, because I’ve now been twice, and both times have been absolutely amazing. I would say indescribable, but then there’d be no blog post, would there? Going to…

40 days in France: Year Abroadery

Hello Internet Peoples! I hope you’re all feeling fancy and fabulous as ever! Today, as promised, I will get a move on with the blog au sujet de my adventures in France. It’s been more than one month since I got here, which is kind of incredible and very hard to take it! But thankfully…
