Adventure Abroad


Last year I went abroad I went to New Castle and that became my second home. I love New Castle to bits. It is by far the best place to go to, it’s so green but it’s also a big town and it is absolutely beautiful.  So today I want to revisit the time I spent in New Castle and I want to share with you what it taught me…

It costs nothing to be nice
When I was living in Newcastle I met the nicest, sweetest people I have ever met in my whole life. What I love so much is that they do not care if they know someone or not. So as a ‘stranger,’ it is a very nice environment because you don’t feel as lonely because everyone acts friendly towards you. A bit strange in the beginning but amazing. It made me feel less lonely at times. Which was great.
You can do more than you think
When I went away I was excited and afraid. What if I couldn’t do it? What if everyone laughed at my English? I learned that none of that happened and that I could do it and I loved every single second of it. I was so upset that I had to go home after three months and pick up normal life again. People can do more than they think, just believe in yourself because you can do it.

I learned that I am a good teacher. I learned to trust myself, I learned that I could do it and I learned to look at teaching a completely different way because of the way they did it. (I won’t give examples due to privacy reasons). Let’s just say that I knew I was thinking of not being a teacher but my time here kind of made me doubt that decision. At the end of the day, I might not be a teacher but I’ll be great at raising my kids one day.

Living with less
I don’t need twenty pairs of shoes, a whole stack of jeans, and a ton of make-up. You make do with the stuff you have which was a lovely experience for me. I love having a ton of choices but I am also happy when I don’t. I still have stuff and a lot of it… I might never change but I can do with less and so can you.

The cold north
It is very cold in the north and the sky isn’t very blue it’s usually very white most of the time and it’s getting dark by like four in autumn and winter. So bring a coat when you visit the north. But there was snow as well which made the winter much better.

Family and friends
Living abroad widens your family and friend circle. This is very cool and it gives you a good reason to go back home because home is how it will feel.


The sky is the limit.
I have done it once and I want to do it again. The sky is the limit, isn’t it? I would highly recommend going abroad when you can. I know I will when I get the change. It was the best experience of my life and I wouldn’t have wanted to miss it for the world.


Lots of love,
