I thought I would do a quick introductory post about who I am, what I’m doing abroad etc, so here goes:
I am Eleanor, 20 years old, from Hull and a student at Newcastle University. I am currently living in Seville, Spain as part of my YA (Year Abroad) working as a translator.
This is me (on holiday in Amsterdam which my wonderful boyfriend paid for):
I originally decided to work rather than study to get a bit more work experience, and I wanted a break from revising, essays and exams! Although it has been a bit harder to make friends than if I had been at uni, I am enjoying the experience I am getting at work and will have something a bit different to add to my CV rather than just having studied for 4 years straight.
I will be in Spain until February and then will be moving over to Cologne in Germany for another 6 months, hoping to finish an internship there at the end of July.
My favourite things about Seville so far: the sunshine, the cheap drinks and tapas and the beautiful architecture
My not-so-favourite things: the heat, tea time (10pm… Who eats at 10pm?!) and the hot and sweaty buses
Hope you enjoy reading!
