What was quite possibly one of the best weeks of my life

23 May 2015

Now that exams are officially over and the end of my year abroad is rapidly approaching, I've been in full-on relaxation/make the most of everything mode. This has resulted in probably one of the best weeks of my life and has made me feel even more emotional about going back to England! 

The weekend was spent in the beautiful Vaison La Romaine in Provence with my closest friends from Montpellier, Rowan and Anna. I went there with Rowan way back in October and absolutely loved it, so it was lovely to be able to go again. Our time was spent sunbathing, eating out, and wandering around the charming little streets. I love that place because it really feels like somewhere I'd go on holiday with my parents to.

As soon as I came back from Provence, I hopped on a coach to Girona in Spain to stay in a beautiful big farmhouse for a few days. With twenty people. As you can imagine, it was absolutely hilarious and so, so much fun. We were kind of unlucky with the weather actually, and there was a lot of heavy rain on one of the days we were there. This was majorly annoying as the grounds were beautiful and I really wanted to explore, but we ended up having an ultra childish day indoors playing games. I'm talking Chinese whispers, hide and seek, sardines, wink murder (with tequila shots for those who lost, of course). And yes, we are all around 21 years old but it turns out those games are just as fun as young adults. I am now absolutely exhausted, I feel like all my energy has been drained and I need to detox for the next month probably.

I can't quite believe that I've just said goodbye to so many great people that I may never see again. I'm really trying to be positive about my last week though and focusing more on getting the most out of France for now. Get ready for lots of posts summing up my year abroad in the next few weeks. I've got some reflective ones planned, some highlights, and some guides to Montpellier/the Languedoc-Roussillon region!

  1. Gorgeous pictures! Escaping with your BFFs is the absolute best - my friends and I have talked FOREVER about getting a big house in France and locking ourselves away there for a week and this has made me wanna do it even more!

    Wow this sounds like such an amazing week! I'm currently stuck in England with no holidays planned this summer and feeling very jealous! Both France and Spain are countries to visit on my bucket list and your post has made me want to go even more!
