Here’s a list of some other year abroad blogs that I like to keep up with and that might interest you guys too:

A Blonde in Bordeaux – Written by my friend Lucy, she doesn’t update very often but when she does you’re guaranteed a good laugh. She’s off to Germany in March so the name might change then.

A Brit Abroad – Hannah currently works in France but will be going to Russia, which will most certainly be more interesting than anything that happens in Italy!

A Chemist Abroad – I bumped into Jamie in a club in Bordeaux and it turns out we have a few friends in common in England. The world is far too small. He studies chemistry at Bath and is spending a year at uni in Bordeaux.

Adventures with Frogs and Snails and Other Mildly Xenophobic Tales – Paul is working as a teaching assistant in a high school in Bordeaux for the year. This blog is hilarious, everyone must read it.

Emilia Lives Life – A very regular updater, Emilia is spending a year studying in Italy. If you want to know where to find the best pastries and coffee pretty much anywhere in the world, she’s your girl.

Im Ausland: EllieSpeaks Abroad – Ellie has just moved from Germany to Italy. If you’re on a year abroad yourself and are feeling stressed out, this blog will help you see the brighter side in everything.

JetSet Jones – Millie studies French and German and so far has been working as a teaching assistant in Hanover, as well as apparently sampling every kind of Wurst that the country has to offer.

Life of Bain – Chris studies Computer Science (UPDATE: and electronics. I’m a bad friend) at Bristol and is at uni for the year in Singapore, although he seems to spend most of his time exploring other parts of the Far East.

Living in Frogland South American-Stylee – Polly is another Bristol student, and one of the few lucky Frenchies who’s gone a little bit off the beaten track for their year abroad.

Melle du Jour – Mike is a teaching assistant like myself who gives a great insight into proper small-town living in France (population of under 4000!)

Rennes to Russia – Ruth has already managed to spend 7 months working in France, fantastic commitment, and will be heading to Russia soon.

Sunshine, Sancerre and Cigarettes – Steph was a student in Poitiers and is now a fellow Comenius assistant working in Genzano di Roma, which is on the other side of Rome from Spoleto.

The Great Erasmus Adventure – My friend Chynna, who also studied in Bordeaux, will soon be off to Verona for even more studying!

Une Fausse Chabine an Péyi-A – Lucy is a teaching assistant in Martinique whose posts never fail to make me giggle.
