A New Chapter in Strasbourg

Bonjour! A new update in life means I've needed to update my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and now this blog. I left Brussels at the end of July, having completed my internship with the Greens, and now I am currently undertaking another with the communications department of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg!

Exeter, United Kingdom

My sister is currently 2 years into her PhD at the University of Exeter, and so I finally booked a Megabus to go visit her. Just a brief 7h20 coach ride to Devon from Leeds.

Ghent, Belgium

Ghent, Belgium

May Day = Labour Day = No work day! With a random day off work and surprisingly no rain forecast, I used my Go Pass 10 to take a trip to Ghent, which is only around 40 minutes from Brussels by train. Once you reach the city centre - it is as quaint and as [...]
