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.
Cox’s European Adventure – I met Aaron in Bordeaux where he was also studying, and he is now living in Seville partying and drinking, with a bit of uni on the side.

Germanyohmy – Rose goes to uni in California and is on a year abroad, firstly in Bordeaux (where we met) and now in Freiburg, Germany! She’s pretty awesome.

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!)
