March, with its blustery, rainy, and then suddenly sun-filled days has come to an end. For me, this month was all about finding balance. Between work, essays, and … actual life.
Where was I in March?
Jk (not really)… also Plymouth, Exeter, and Spain!!! I haven’t posted anything on Spain yet as I’ve just arrived.
Most popular instagram in March…
My favorite instagram in March…
March adventured like…
- This month has been pretty chaotic on the Masters front… I took on an extra Neuroscience module, which little did I know back in January when I signed up, was alongside pretty much the most heavy term we’ve had so far in terms of essays and work.
- That all translated to less blog posts this month… I scaled back from my two posts a week policy, and I’ve just been posting on Wednesday, to keep up with Wanderlust Wednesday, one of my favorite link ups.
- I managed to do a couple day trips to Exeter including a walk along the quay (my favorite thing to do in Exeter), and some lovely walks in Plymouth discovering new pastel houses
- My general lack of adventures led to some more retrospective blog posts, including an expat chat (read to hear a bit about my expat background!), my upcoming travel plans, and how to find the secret mews of London.
- Also, I finally posted something I’d been writing for MONTHS: My thoughts/advice on why (and how) travelers should support refugees. This is a cause very close to my heart, and I was motivated to finally post because I just found out I’ve received a scholarship which will help me volunteer at a refugee camp this autumn!! I can’t wait to share more about that experience and some more serious thoughts here on the blog.
March tasted like…
- I discovered Plymouth’s newest and coolest restaurant, Kuku, where I subsequently spent all my money, but had legit the best sushi I’ve EVER had in the UK.
- Also made a trip to my favorite pizza place in Plymouth for some gluten free dough
- Wagamamas, Indian takeaway, On the Waterfront in Exeter….. literally all I’ve done this month is eat?!
- My Italian friend cooked carbonara one night for a small group of us which was incredible… I since tried to recreate the magic but clearly my genes are deficient in the Italian-cooking front.
Here’s to April! For me, I’m hoping that April brings more balance, peace, and, of course, adventures! What about you?
