I am a 3rd year English Literature and Spanish student currently on my year abroad. I am studying in the Spanish city of Granada and I aim to fully immerse myself in a whole new culture, improve on my language and most importantly continue my ever constant pursuit of a tan.
This has been one of the craziest weeks of my life. On Wednesday corona virus seemed like a whole world away, and I was confused by the growing panic, but by midday on Thursday the whole of Spain had gone into meltdown and I started to realise that it may be much more serious than Read more
I’ll start with an obvious statement: Spain in February is much warmer and sunnier and by far dryer than the UK. So I feel like I can’t possibly complain while every time I facetime my family or friends back home they are right in the middle of storm Dennis, or Ciara, or another civilised named Read more

While the stereotype of a forever partying Read more
During my short time here I have been really amazed by Spain’s fight against climate change. I was able to be part of the worldwide global strike which saw almost 50 Spanish cities participate in environmental protests and marches in order to raise awareness of the environmental crisis. In Granada the streets were full of Read more
While Cardiff and Live Lounge will always have my heart, I am very quickly falling in love with Granada. From impromptu live music and flamenco dancing on the street, to beautiful viewpoints and short trips to both the mountains and the beach there is no way I will ever be bored of living here.

Starting your year abroad is extremely daunting in many ways, therefore it is important to be prepared in order to make your move as easy as possible and allow yourself to fully enjoy this exciting experience without too much stress.
