    Carnaval de Cádiz - Day 6

    Tuesday 12thFebruary I spent Tuesday relaxing before heading out to the right police station, which turned out to be further down the avenue of Andalucia, on the far side of the city gates. I went with Kath who had been before to get her citizen card, once inside the...

    Monday 11th February This is marked on all my calendars as ‘the saddest day ever’ because both Claire and Kira left Cádiz on 11thFeb. Kath had stayed at mine the night before and we woke up early as she was popping over to Kiras house to help her with a few last...

    Carnaval de Cádiz - Day 4

    Sunday 10thFebruary I must admit that I was still somewhat tipsy when I woke up at 11am, I popped onto Skype to see what the girls were up to, they were meeting at 12.30pm at Burger King for something to eat, so I got dressed and decided to meet them there. I met Claire...

    Carnaval de Cádiz - Day 3

    Saturday 9thFebruary Despite it being the first morning for a while that I had been able to have a proper lie in, I was unable to sleep past 10.30am, so feeling wide and awake I decided to do a couple of jobs around the house that I had been meaning to do. It was the...

    Despedida de Jana

    In the week before Carnaval the four of us who live in the Plaza de Mina flat received an e-mail from Ana, our landlady asking if we wanted to have a ‘Despedida de Jana’, she offered to make us all one of her paellas. We of course said yes! Who can turn down...

    Carnaval de Cádiz - Day 2

    Friday 8thFebruary I had one final exam to sit at 9am on Friday, the first day of Carnaval where there were things on the timetable that we fancied going to see. Once the exam was over (despite it not going quite so well) I felt an instant sense of relief that I could...

    First Day of Carnaval de Cádiz 2013

    Thursday 7th February It had finally arrived, the first day of Carnaval! Unfortunately for most of us we still had exams on the Friday, so weren’t planning on getting involved in anything, we instead stuck it out at home or in the library with revision, so...

    Torre Tavira

    I have now visited the tower twice in my time in Cádiz, once with my father and brother, then again more recently with my friends here. Claire has always wanted to go up the tower but is afraid of heights so hadn’t got around to doing it yet, but as she is leaving us...

    Mina Square Tapas

    This little tapas bar only recently opened, so we hadn’t tried it until the other day, feeling a little peckish, with no food in the house and no inclination to go very far Kath, Claire, Anissa and I headed downstairs and out into Plaza de Mina for some food, there...

    Preparations for Carnaval

    Whilst we were all busy stuck inside revising and sitting exams, the rest of Cádiz was busy preparing for Carnaval. As the Christmas lights were taken down they were replaced with different ones that are more befitting for the Carnaval theme. There are some crazy...

    Exams

    So after the Geography exam that we had before Christmas we really weren’t sure what to expect from the proper exam season. So we headed to exams with something else to be uncertain of, aside from the exam content. First things first, there is seemingly no standard...

    Revision Tips

    Could someone please offer me some? Once you return back from your Christmas holidays the main thing occupying your thoughts and classes will most likely be exams. Some classes may not even continue after Christmas, allowing you plenty of time to ‘revise’, the rest...

    The internet is your friend.

    One tool that has been very useful throughout my Erasmus Year is of course the internet, it can literally be used for everything from finding accommodation to finding out the latest Erasmus news. Before you start your year check to see if your university has an Erasmus...

    Trip to Bahía Sur

    After passing it several times on the train we wondered if the large shopping centre that we had seen in San Fernando was worth a visit, from the train all we could see the massive Bahia Sur sign and McDonalds Drive Through. However after hearing rumours of a large...

    Erasmus Cadiz 2013 / 2014 (English)

    Hi, I never paid for the access to easypiso, I just used the free version and only contacted users who had paid. Getting a hostel before and looking for accomodation is usually a good choice but carnaval is 7th - 17th February so most hostels will not have space....

    Planning Your Year

    One of the things that I failed to do much last semester was plan how I would be spending my time, sure we made a bucket list of things to do, but in the end we failed to achieve many of them because we kept thinking to ourselves ‘we have plenty of time to get that...

    So, not strictly a place, but for any rock or metal fan in Birmingham a night at Anarchy is a must! Anarchy used to be a fortnightly event at Subway City, however once that changed ownership Anarchy seemed to be lost, but recently The Rooftop has offered Anarchy a new...

    New Years Eve

    The way that I see it, you have four main options for how to spend a New Years Eve in England, be prepared to answer questions about and discuss what you will be doing for New Years Eve from the start of December.  Most people seem to make a very big deal of their New...

    An Afternoon at the Football

    Since arriving in Cádiz, going to a local football match had been on our list of things to do, but somehow we had never got around to actually doing it. It was only mid way through the first semester when we actually found where the stadium was, this was after a...

    Cádiz Bucket List

    Early in the first term on the train to Seville, we decided to make a bucket list of things to do before we left, just to make sure that we didn’t get complacent and miss out on our year abroad. I decided that this would be a good place to put our list and keep a...

    Travelling back to Cádiz after Christmas

    It would seem that you really can’t take us anywhere, especially on a plane, without there being some form of luggage drama, so we really should have been expecting it on our journey back to Cádiz. Kath, Claire and I decided to meet in Birmingham as it was easy for...

    La Tienda de Vélez

    La Tienda de Vélez is the third restaurant owned by the Vélez brothers in Cádiz. It is handily located on the number one bus route, almost exactly opposite the Playa Victoria Hotel, so is very easy to find. However its location means that it of course doesn’t have...

    Avenida 28

    Year Abroad Finances

    This post may be a little bit case-specific to be useful for most, but hopefully it is useful to some people. I wish I had more advice on finances before I started my Year Abroad, as at times I have been tripped up by banks or my university. Banking in Spain When I...

    A Traditional British Christmas

    Well so far as I’m aware it’s a pretty standard procedure across the country, most people I know seem to follow a pretty similar routine. So if you are lucky enough to spend a Christmas in Britain then this is perhaps a bit of what you can expect. Firstly in the...
