I got my GCSE’s, A-Levels, BA degree; I’d got the set of qualifications my teachers had always encouraged me to get. But, then what? Nobody at the University of York […]

Adventures in Dubrovnik

21st November 2019

Before I share my adventures in Dubrovnik, let’s get it out there… I haven’t watched Game of Thrones (don’t @ me) so this is not a GOT filled trip with tours of the locations, museums or 287490 gift shops. Another time, when I’ve watched however many million hours of TV it is, I will do […]
