Update: Studying Abroad

It has been just over three months since I have last written a blog post, but what an amazing three months it has been.

At the end of September I packed up my suitcases and said goodbye to my life in France which had been such a wonderful experience and being able to spend such a lot of time with my family that I’ve only seen a handful of times in my life.

Onto a train to Paris, on a plane to London and then onto a coach to Cardiff I hopped!

It was so strange suddenly seeing signs in English, but when I arrived into Wales not only was it English, but Welsh too. I was a bundle of excitement and nervousness as I sat in the van that drove me to my flat. I knew one person who was going to be in my flat, so that calmed my nerves a bit.

Arriving to the flat is a bit of blur for me. I was super flustered and hot from carrying my huge suitcases up the stairs so the introductions were breathless and sweaty. Within hours of arriving I found myself getting ready to go out with the rest of the flat for the opening of the Y Plas, the newly refurbished student union club.

The rest of the week was a whirlwind of new faces, eating, drinking and dancing. The student life is so different to anything I’ve experienced in New Zealand. I think this is generally down to the fact that I lived at home as does many other students in Auckland.

While I’m unsure when I will have time to update this in the next few months, what with assignments, Christmas Holidays and exams coming up, I am planning on catching you all up to speed once I get home to New Zealand.

I’m really looking forward to hopefully having a white Christmas this year, something that I’ve never experienced before! Have a safe and happy holiday!
