Book Review: Elastic Girl by Olivia Rana

Elastic Girl by Olivia Rana

I love books set in countries I am not so familiar with. In particular, I love books set in India. India is a country that fascinates me from the food to the fashion and the very friendly people. Unfortunately, I haven’t visited yet, at least in a way that was not through the pages of […]

Joy Vs. German: Round 3: Failure To Learn

I really do not know why I am writing this post because it is going to be the same old ramble again. You all seem to like reading these types of posts though. I bet you are laughing at me fluently in German…… Well, the last time I updated you on my journey to learn the German language […]

Experience Life: Embrace Other Cultures

When my time in Berlin is over (if that ever happens) one thing I will be forever thankful for is how it has allowed me to become more open to other cultures. I used to think I knew a lot about other cultures when I still lived in Ireland, but in reality I was quite […]
