~ Bonjour ~ Hello ~ Hola ~ Ciao ~


Em is a 21 year old student from Yorkshire. She loves to travel, read books, play sports and eat hummus.

In September 2018 she will embark on the first phase of her university year abroad, spending four months living and working in South East France. After this she will move to the French West Indies for four months. Through this blog she will document her journey, which, by prediction, will consist mainly of epic disasters, losses of bearings and language faux pas.

She would love for you to follow her breadcrumb trail of embarrassing mishaps as she endeavours to survive in a foreign country with a somewhat limited knowledge of the native language.


So, if you’re at all interested in this potentially entertaining saga, keep reading! 🙂
