Happy New Year!

Posted on 2 January 2015 by Nina

I know a lot of people who are cynical about New Years Resolutions, with good reason.

So I’m currently writing this 11,842 miles across the globe from Cardiff. Gives me butterflies in my stomach when i think of it like that! Apart from going a few miles further south, I couldn’t really be farther from home. After travelling for 46 hours through countless timezones, I finally made it to my new
