I spent the majority of March not actually in Deutschland, rather 2 weeks in England and 5 days in Budapest. That did, however, result in a very exciting month!

A Rollercoaster Couple of Weeks

The past week and a bit has most probably been the most up-and-down time I've ever had in such a short space of time, and it's time to rant it all out on here, both the positives and the negatives, because I feel I just need to get it all written down to let it all… Continue reading A Rollercoaster Couple of Weeks
