Tick tock, Tick tock...

4 days. Only 4 days until I will be in Heathrow, panicking in the departures lounge, after staring absent mindedly at all the duty free that I think I want but I definitely don't need.

The nervousness is setting in, I can feel it.

I need make sure I've got all my essentials. PANIC, PANIC. Perhaps that's my cue to head to Boots and raid the holiday section. Insect repellent, I'm coming for you.

Big love, xo

The Indian Summer

School's out for summer!

My second year of university is DONE. Completed. I have one more year until I'm off into the big bad world to begin the 'grown up' stage of my life. Post-student. I'm dreading it.

Thankfully that isn't quite yet. Summer's started. And guess what!

Earlier this year, I signed up to a TEFL programme which offered an opportunity to teach in India. I was over the moon and beyond when - after various different emailing processes, an interview, and other formative routines - I found out I would be teaching in a school in Kerala! It's been a lengthy procedure of gaining my visa and booking flights plus having travel vaccinations, amongst other bits and bobs, but it is now less than a week until my flight from Heathrow.


I hope to write as much as I can about my trip there on this blog, and give everyone updates on my travels/my time at the school!

The countdown to Kerala is on!

Big love, xo

P.S. Every time I say I'm going to India for the summer, the Stereophonics song plays in my head and gets stuck there for days.
