I’m a recent Modern Languages graduate currently teaching English in Paris and blogging about both travel and my life as a gluten-intolerant lesbian expat.
I started itchy feet in 2012 to document my Erasmus year abroad, which I spent mostly as an English Language Assistant in Madrid, Spain and briefly as an au pair deep in the French countryside. I wrote about my trials and tribulations but also the good times in the hope that future year-abroaders may benefit from my experiences. Through my blogging I discovered a passion for writing and this site became both a year abroad memoir and a platform for me to blog about travel and other things, and allowed me to go on to become a fashion and lifestyle writer for my university’s Platform magazine and online site.
