“What hall are you in? Alright, it will be just to your left. Here’s your key, don’t lose it or we’ll have to charge you a £30 fee to replace it.”

Well, first of all, if you tell me not to lose something, I will most definitely lose it within the first 2 seconds of having it. Second of all, it took me nearly 20 minutes to find room 12A – the room that was supposedly just to my left.

Then, after the initial shock that was discovering I didn’t have a private bathroom, I started unpacking. Now, this may not come as a surprise to the people that know me, but I soon realised my clothes weren’t going to fit into the wooden shoe box the accomodation people call a wardrobe. I even had to put up a rope from my door to my curtain rod to funtion as a washing line because there simply wasn’t anywhere else to put it. In sum, it wasn’t quite what I was expecting.

But I loved it.

The scenery is absolutely beautiful, I’ve made some amazing new friends, and Hull – where I live now – has a lot to offer; from great restaurants and shopping centres to a huge aquarium.

The first trip I went on was visiting the ice trail in York. We looked at some incredible ice sculptures and also did some sightseeing while we were there. The Minster, that has been a symbol of the city since the 7th century, is simply breathtaking. It’s definitely worth visiting if you ever have the chance.

In other news: I had my first ever fish&chips, I watched the Super Bowl for the first time and I find the Yorkshire accent very, very difficult to understand.

It’s been 3 amazing weeks filled with adventures and great stories, but I’ll save that for another time!
