Learning to drive

Learning to drive

I always imagined driving would be easy. What else was there to do other than applying the brakes, gears and steering the wheel? I would often think thought to myself. I had always been extremely proficient at driving related games, so I decided to give driving classes a shot during my summer break. After a lot of consultation and advice from my peers, I joined a driving center near my house. Several people asked me why I wasted money on joining a center when I could have asked my parents or friends to help me, free of cost. I can safely say that I can answer this question adequately now.

I’m Going To Portugal

I’m Going To Portugal

I have some super exciting news: I’m off to Portugal for a week at the end of this month, and I’m literally desperate for a relaxing week in the sun! I’ve never been to Portugal before, which was the reason myself and my boyfriend decided to chose this place as our next holiday destination. I mean, I tend to travel a lot, so it’s kinda strange I’ve left it so long to explore this place… So it’s the total opposite end of the holiday spectrum to my earlier trip this year – a beautiful week in Phuket, Thailand. This time, we’re opting for a 4 star huuuuuuge hotel nestled between the old and new town of Albufeira, close to some of Portugal’s loveliest beaches. As I don’t know too much about Albufeira, and Portugal in general, I’m totally up for hearing your recommendations: where is good to day trip? Any great eating destinations? Favourite beach in Portugal? Hit me up guys – I wanna hear alllllll your thoughts! So whilst I leave the...
