11 Months of Travel in 11 Pictures

Comments 2 Standard

It occuried to me earlier this week, that it has been a whole eleven months already, since I set off to France in August 2014 to start my Year Abroad. It feels just like yesterday and yet a million years ago at the same time, and it is all going to end in a week’s time, just like that.

I have had an incredible year, experiencing living abroad and documenting it all as I have gone along, and I hope you, my readers, friends and family, have enjoyed the journey to France, Spain and Portugal with me! Although it was a tough selection, I have chosen a select 11 photographs to sum up each of these last wonderful 11 months (featured image doesn’t count!)…
