Erasmus Bilbao – The Last One

They say that all good things come to an end, and that good things come to those who wait but I’m not so sure that I believe in that. Now in June the end of my Erasmus year in Bilbao has ended, I’ve packed up my room and am back in England albeit after 20…

Flashback Friday: YOBO – You Only Bilbao Once!

So it’s been nearly 5 weeks since I last posted on here with the intention of more regular posts, and a Flashback Friday section. However, in a turn of events, that didn’t happen. But being as it is actually Friday today I guess that gives me the perfect excuse to Flashback over this semester so…

You know you’ve lived in the Basque Country when…

As second semester begins, and I’ve been lucky enough to get Friday’s free (hello three day weekend!) I’m left with some time to reflect on what it really means to live in the Basque Country and have come up with a few things which I feel depict this region, so here we go: You know…

A month late but the year 2012 in review.

I meant to write this at the beginning of the year, at the start of 2013, but I didn’t. I could sit here and give excuses why, but the truth is that I just didn’t. I wanted to summarise my year as a whole, above all for myself as a way to reflect on it…

Saying Goodbye to international friends.

I started this blog in July 2012 as a way to record my year abroad. As we’ve now reached the middle of January, friends of mine who were only staying in Bilbao for the semester have left or are preparing to leave. So instead of posting about the year 2012, which I was originally going…

Erasmus Life: it’s not just siesta and fiesta!

It’s happened again, it’s been over two weeks and I haven’t posted anything. I normally keep this space to write about my trips that I make, about the Beauty of the Basque Country and life in Spain as a whole. I never mention the some what never ending amounts of university work I have, I…

A few thoughts on life in Bilbao…six weeks on

It feels like a lifetime ago that I first stepped foot into my new flat, that I first got lost in my own apartment block trying to find the right door. But the truth of the situation is that this flat has become my home, making Bilbao my home by default, something that puts a…

Party in the Guggenheim Museum?…Why on earth not?

4 words and I was sold… “Party in the Guggenheim” That’s right, I went to a party in the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao. It was a special event to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the museum, live music, DJ’s inside and outside, dancing and art. What’s not to love? When I first heard about the event,…

A lazy update through photos

Waking up this morning it dawned on me again that I hadn’t written a new post in over three weeks, and I promised myself that today would finally be the day that I wrote one. It’s now dark outside and I’ve only just started, I have 3 weeks worth of catching up to do, and…
