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!

Erasmus trip to the North of Spain where I discovered infinite exciting aspects of Spanish culture. This time, I travelled to Northern Europe (how come it's always about the northern regions?) and saw many German and Dutch locations, which I really liked and made me consider moving abroad again in a far future. Who knows what life holds for me!

One thing I absolutely loved about Germany was the sea. I'm a sea lover and wherever I am in the world I always appreciate sitting or walking along the beach, whether it's hot, cold, with clear or darker water. This is because I find it the highest, most beautiful thing of nature - it's so calming, healing and wise in its own way. In Germany, I saw three types of seaside towns: two more 'social' ones (but different) and a more isolated one: Scharbeutz, St Peter-Ording and Vollerwiek.
