Celebrating in the Danish Countryside

Everyone should have a friend abroad, cheap housing, cooked meals and great fun!

Last weekend I completed a few firsts. Even though it wasn’t my first time to Denmark, it was my first time to the Danish Countryside, it was my shortest holiday abroad staying only two nights and my first trip abroad with a big group! Nine of us in total.

As you may know, if you’ve read my post on my time in Aarhus, Denmark, I have two old school friends who now live in Denmark and Germany, and we usually only get to see each other once a year for a few weeks in the summer. So, when Annika, my dane, suggested we spend a weekend in her Summer House in Bonnerup to celebrate her 21st it was a must!

The Bucket List Part II

There’s no point being under ambitious

This week I found out that I passed my summer re-sit exam! That means, my readers, that I am officially in my third and final year of University! So far I am trying to save for a trip to Italy but I’m on a zero hour contract at my current job so shifts are a bit unpredictable and I can’t apply for another job because I need to take 4 weeks off in November for a placement at NME – sigh, as much as I want to save a load of money I do need to keep reminding myself that I am still getting a degree and reluctantly, that comes first. However, I am actually feeling motivated to save my money which is a great feeling! Last time I saved money like this I was off to America and when it comes to wanting two pairs of shoes, I now ask myself ‘what do I want more, new boots or an afternoon kayaking on Lake Como’.

The Bucket List

What I want to achieve before I kick the bucket!

As this is a travel blog – which I hope will be joining me on my travels when the ball finally gets rolling – I’m going to post a list of ten activities, adventures, places and achievements I wish to tick off within the next 10 years.

My summer of Placements

9057485840_1f801fbe29_o

I am not worthy of a blog!

But, I have a good excuse! I’ve been super busy filling my CV up to the brim with placement, placement, placements.

MKFM

This was my first ever placement – and it was the funnest time I’ve ever had! MKFM is my local radio station, if you hadn’t guessed, and I had two great weeks oh finding news stories and reading bulletins on the hour every hour from 10am-6pm.

 

Gapyear.com

Now, as much as I loved my time at MKFM, it’s doesn’t take a detective to know that travel writing is where my heart is. I was delighted when Victoria Philpott from the site contacted me asking if I wanted an internship at one of my favourite online travel hubs, Gapyear.com. So, for the past two weeks I have become a london commuter – 1 hour 45 minutes each way 5 days a week, but it’s totally worth it. This placement so far has reassured me that travelling and travel writing is what I want to do!

I haven’t been shipped off anywhere exotic – yet. But, I’ve had great fun researching so many different countries and discovering great blogs. By the way – Argentina is now my number 1 place to travel, and so far that has been my favourite country to research, it has such vast landscapes and the Buenos Aires nightlife is just incredible! They have after-hours night clubs! So when the night clubs close, more open! It’s crazy!

At the moment there isn’t much travelling on the cards for me – cue sad violin – especially as my placement is taken up all my work time, not that I’d trade it if given the option.

However! I am planning a Eurotrip next summer so I’ll keep you all updated on how that’s going and some of my highlights from my placement here at Gapyear.com

They are offering internships at the moment, so if you fancy contributing to the Gapyear.com website by all means apply. The team aren’t too bad either 😉 but we like our lunches out – you’ve been warned!
