For reading week, or, in other words, one of the best perks of arts students in the UK, I flew back home to enjoy a warmer weather, good food and a few glasses of Tuscan red wine. Being in my last year of university, I spent most of my break at the library, but I can't complain since I also went on a lovely road trip around Tuscany. Because these towns are all very close to one another, we managed to stop at many including Monteriggioni, Castellina in Chianti, Panzano and Radda in Chianti. Although I liked them all, Monteriggioni and the wine fields impressed me the most - so that's where the pictures are from.

Last week, my best friend from home, Claudia, came to visit me in Bristol. Like last time she came in my second year, we decided to travel a bit around the area and headed to Cheddar, a little town in Somerset where Cheddar cheese is produced and where you can walk in nature and see a natural gorge. After a long bus trip from Bristol, we explored Cheddar and walked up the natural footpath, which was lovely, even if we didn't get to the top. And of course, since there were so many cosy tea shops and cafes we had to indulge in cream tea.

This month I was lucky enough to get to collaborate with Tea Village, a Thai tea company that I discovered through Instagram. A few weeks ago, they kindly sent me some samples of their teas. I took my time to taste them all and now I feel ready for the review. I found all tea flavours to have quite a nice and light taste to them, but I'm gonna go more into detail about each one through this post. To give it a nicer look, I did a little photoshoot in my garden in Florence which I really enjoyed :)

I flew here on Sunday afternoon and it's been hectic since day 1. This is both because I'm working during Welcome Week 2016 at the International Office and because I feel like I need to get ahead of time with the upcoming year. Not many students have arrived in Bristol yet and I feel like this is giving me the chance to settle back in more easily. I would also like to use this time to get determined for the year ahead and try to make it my best one at university. So far it's been pretty good - I just found out I was nominated for a year abroad essay prize which made me so happy! I'm still waiting for my third year assignments results, which hopefully will be good. One of my targets this year would be to graduate with a first class degree, although that wouldn't reflect my entire university experience since it wasn't (luckily) all spent on books or in the library, but more mixing up academics to social activities and getting useful life experience - which, in my opinion, is a lot more relevant than merely studying. In this post, I have brainstormed some ideas and wrote down a list of my goals for this final university year... let's see what happens!
