  • My Mongrel Family's Version of an English Christmas
    on Dec 29, 2013
    This year, I've been investigating the myriad of ways people in different countries celebrate Christmas. From the relatively young Japanese custom of ordering KFC on Christmas Eve to the Catalan Shit Log, the results are bizarre and fascinating. Afte...

  • Visit to Granada
    on Jul 2, 2013
    With both our exams over, we managed to cadge a trip to Granada (known locally as GranĂ¡) by staying with the parents of my family friend. I'd just met them once before, in Madrid, but they invited me and my boyfriend then to come and stay with them.
  • Marrakech - A Journey to the Red City
    on May 16, 2013
    I was feeling a little restless in Valencia recently; it rained for a few days solid and I was obviously outraged. The chance of a spontaneous trip to Marrakech came at just the right time. As I was the only one of our group without copious amounts o...
  • The Verb 'To Be' In Different Languages

  • Things Spain Could Improve
    on Apr 2, 2013
    I love Spain. I would love to live here (oh wait...I DO). I took the above picture while I was sitting in my local park, which is in an old riverbed, doing some work by the water in a sundress. It was maybe a couple degrees warmer than England right...
  • Fallas - Valencia's Biggest Festival
    on Mar 22, 2013
    Valencia's biggest fiesta is one of the first things Valencians will gush to you about when they realise you're not a native. The word falla is Valencian for torch, which comes from the Latin fax. Each town in Valencia has its own falla and in the ci...

  • Sagunto: A Day Trip in Arse
    on Mar 10, 2013
    This week, I decided the best way to spend my Saturday would be to make my friends get up at an ungodly hour (8 am! In the morning!) and go look at some Roman ruins with me. We set off on our merry way in kind of a hurry because it's impossible to be...
